Age of Money - Twenty-twenty!

Hey, in my variant of English it rhymes!

Starting up the AoM challenge for the new year!


1. Choose a day every month that you will post your AOM to the google spreadsheet (link below). 

Be consistent on the day that you have chosen to post your AOM. (Your metrics will not help you or provide you with useful data if you are not consistent.)

2. Post your AOM.

3. Comment below that you have updated the spreadsheet.

If you want, you may post a screenshot of your AOM. This will be fun and will help keep the thread alive. It's not required however.

4. Try to keep the thread on topic.

Changes to the Spreadsheet.

If you see any minor changes that ought to be made, go ahead and change it.


Cheating is posting a number that is not your actual AOM, or changing your number because your AOM increased the following day.

We are following the the honor/honour system. 

You do not need to cheat, but if you do, everyone will ask how you've become so awesome with money and then you'll have to live with yourself. It only hurts you.

  • I thought it had stabilized, but it went up a bunch this month? Not really sure why, as transactions are pretty stable.

  • Down from 28 last month to 25. 🙄

    Figuring it had something to do with using up most of my "medical" category on my teenager's ER visit this month.

  • AOM at the end of June was 60. At end of July AOM is down to 38. Decided to go ahead and max out my ROTH for 2019 and filed at the deadline. Dropped my AOM but I'm okay with that!

  • AOM August 1st  - 14

    Down from AOM July 1st - 34

    Lowest: AOM Jan 1 - 2

    Highest: AOM July 1st - 34


    Selling my house has been a rollercoaster and my AOM reflects that. I had to spend a lot of money upfront and just recently have gotten ahead in my savings from the settlement. I hope now that I have 1 month+ ahead in my budget that my AOM will steadily grow from here on out to reach my yearly goal of 60.

  • AOM up from 170 and DOB up from 184.

  • The large transaction I was expecting (paying off a reno project) went through and AOM is now at 110. I have nothing else big planned for the rest of the year, so I'm curious to see what it will climb back up to.
