Happy Spreadsheet day!

Didn't know there was such a day as Spreadsheet Day?

You must not be a spreadsheet user?

Well, if you're not, you're in for a big treat.

The people at Tiller, a tech company with a mission to help people take control of their spending and life got some interesting data.

Using AYTM.com, the team at Tiller surveyed 100 people who have:

  • Tracked their finances for 3 months or more
  • And who are currently using a spreadsheet despite having tried at least one personal finance app in the past.

These aren't Tiller users, they're just spreadsheet users.

Here's what they found:

  • 96% are satisfied with using a spreadsheet compared with the app/s they tried
  • 92% are more aware of their spending habits now that they're using a spreadsheet
  • 89% say spreadsheets give them more control over how they track their finances
  • 83% think spreadsheets are easier and simpler to use than the app/s they tried
  • 81% say spreadsheets have better reporting options than they app/s they tried

Bottom line: spreadsheets + money = a sense of control.

Conclusion

If you're not using a spreadsheet, there's a high likelihood you don't have a sense of control about your money.

If you want a sense of control about your money, try a spreadsheet.

Most people who feel a sense of control about their money use spreadsheets.

Happy Spreadsheet Day!
