Personally, I don't find it all that onerous.For a long time, I enjoyed it. Then my mother's money(which I managed from when my father died & I was 25) became very important because I wasn't sure it would last and I was running spreadsheet numbers every month. When that was over, there was the estate and dealing with the household goods. Then the end of college was in sight and a few months after that, my husband became ill and I was dealing with appts and medical bills and looming disability and death.I still manage some of my own and I manage my kids' retirement accounts. Mine, because of a variety of investments and some self-employment, sometimes feels like one more job. I do have some of mine managed for a couple of reasons and I am okay paying for it. And I do seem to find time to do other things with my time as well.Grandparenting and outdoor sports trump money management these days. A couple of other activities do as well. Then again, I seem to recall at some point figuring out that I am old enough to be your mother so we can check in again in 20ish years ;)
