PO and Big Lots! pennies

Okay, last week I had family visit. We had a great time and drove hundreds of miles:  to Tucson, the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, and Sedona, all around Phoenix. Did I find any money? Heck no. Not a penny. I drove my visitors to the airport yesterday morning so between the four of us, nothing.

But today I ran out to the post office (found 1 penny) then to the library (nothing, well, I found some DVDs and books), to Goodwill because it's half off day (no money though but did buy the dresser scarf in the photo... only 25 cents!), and finally to Big Lots! (1 more penny). Go figure.
