Recently my English teacher in an example has used

"I spent my whole money on...",

but I thought whole it's rather used with countable nouns. So I just thought that maybe he made a mistake?


Yes, that is a mistake. You could say "my whole fortune", or "all my money", but not "my whole money".

    You could also say "a whole pile of money" or "i spent a whole lot of money"
