Let's say the total amount of money in Beren and Ceren's piggy banks initially is x TL.

Beren spent 60% of x, which means she has $100-60$% = 40% of x remaining in her piggy bank.

Ceren spent 7% of x, which means she has $100-7$% = 93% of x remaining in her piggy bank.

The total remaining amount in their piggy banks is given to be equal, so we can set up the equation:

0.40x = 0.93x - 90 TL

Subtracting 0.40x from both sides gives:

0.53x = 90 TL

Dividing both sides by 0.53 gives:

x = 90 TL / 0.53

x ≈ 169.81 TL

Therefore, the total amount of money that Beren and Ceren had initially is approximately 169.81 TL.

Answer: \boxed{169.81 \text{ TL}}.
