Still waiting on that cost-of-living raise to help with inflation? Well, it looks like the KIDS already got one: An annual poll found the Tooth Fairy is now paying more than FIVE BUCKS per tooth for the first time ever.
The average this year is $5.36 compared to $4.70 in 2021, which was also a record. That's a 14% jump in 12 months. (That's about double the rate of inflation, which was around 7% this past year.)
Kids in the Northeast are getting the most at a whopping $7.36 per tooth. Children down South are next at $5.77 . . . then the Midwest, $4.27 . . . and kids out West are getting $4.08 per tooth.
