Even The Tooth Fairy Is Feeling The Tough Economy
When you were a kid, how much money did you get from the tooth fairy? I remember getting a quarter for each tooth and being pretty pleased with that. Kids these days get alot more than that but even the tooth fairy is being forced to cut back on how much cash she's handing out.
Tough economic times have forced the tooth fairy to cut back too. Over the past year, instead of getting three bucks per tooth, kids are now getting, on average, two dollars and sixty cents. According to a Visa survey, that's a thirteen percent drop in cash for cuspids. Some kids didn't get anything for their teeth. Ten percent of kids under age twelve, according to the survery, didn't get a single penny for their lost teeth over the past year. In your house, are you cutting back on what the kids get from the tooth fairy? What do you give?
