How much allowance did you get?

There’s an interesting blog post over on freemoneyfinance that is asking two serious financial questions:

  • How much did you get for an allowance as a kid?
  • How much did the tooth fairy leave you?

I answered:

I got $1/week allowance starting around first grade and $1/tooth from the tooth fairy. 

My seven year old stepson gets $1/week at both houses and $1/tooth
from the tooth fairy. I think the tooth fairy is being a bit cheap
since she gave me a $1/tooth over 25 years ago!

What about you?
