Narrow Bridge Finance
Once in a while, Family Money Values will highlight a blog that we think will be helpful to our visitors. This week we are recognizing Narrow Bridge Finance wants to help us organize our financial life to stay on top of things. It was founded by Eric, a financial analyst.

I’m pretty proud of my new travertine tile floor – and I did it myself! To see the pictures and find out how much it cost and how I did it skip on over to my guest post at the Saved Quarter.
Every mother or father of a new baby knows how magical routines can be when followed, and how upsetting to baby when interrupted. Establishing a routine for baby can make getting things done easy….the baby comes to expect and desire certain things at certain times of the day. Routines also help as the child grows – supper is followed by homework, then bath, brushing of teeth, reading and bed. You accomplish getting your child fed, educated, cleaned, used to reading and used to healthy sleep.
Whether we plan it or not, each of us has a rhythm to our days – a routine that we follow. Maybe you wake to the alarm, stumble to the kitchen to start the coffee, dress and drive to work. Maybe you stop and chat with the people in your cube aisle on the way to the break room for more coffee then start up your computer and read your emails……
Whatever your routine is, you typically follow it – doing those things, in those ways, at those times, but are you using your routine to maximize your health and wealth?
Have you ever thought about what you might like to do to start your legacy – if you had all the time and money in the world for it. Are there charities you would like to support?

Are you so far in debt that you think you’ll never get out? Are you bone weary of scrimping and saving?

Do you peer into the hazy future and think “life is not getting any better, will not get any better and I will end up as poor as I am today”? Don’t despair. It really does get better. You can stay the course. I know from personal experience, you can get where you want to be. Check out the rest of the article It Really Does Get Better.
If you are looking for a different way to try to get higher interest on your money, think about checking out your county’s tax lien sales. Our county sells the lien certificates to investors and when the property owner pays back the lien, they pay 10% interest on the money and it get’s passed through to the investor.
When I wrote Tax Lien Certificate Sales – Sure Thing or Risky Business I said that I was going to try to sit in on this year’s tax sale in my county. As I go through the process for the first time I will share my activities with you in several posts. This post is about finding the list of properties in arrears that will have tax lien certificates sold and doing the research needed prior to the sale date.
