Coffee & Clicks | May 21, 2011 {Edition #18}

Welcome to Coffee & Clicks, my weekly roundup of posts from my Google Reader and beyond that caught my eye, that made me think, and that just made me laugh. 

Coffee & Clicks is my way of sharing those interesting posts with you.  If you find yourself with a few minutes of leisure to surf on the weekends while you sip your coffee (or whatever fills your mug), feel free to wander through this list of posts and spend some time reading, reflecting, and relaxing.


:: The Simple Dollar talks about The Danger of the Rich Act and how tempting it can be to start living large once you've reached your initial financial goals and find yourself with extra cash. The biggest danger? Forgetting the simple joys in life. Definitely a good read.

:: In the same vein, Frugal Dad has a post up talking about being Debt Free and Happy, but Where to Go from Here? that discusses the fact that even if you slay your debt dragon, you still have financial concerns you'll need to address with new goals.

:: Get Rich Slowly has a post up Ask the Readers: What is My Financial Obligation to My Family? that asks the tough questions that many people face when they have extended family members who are in financial straits but who are also unwilling to change their spending ways. Be sure to read through the comments - there are no easy answers but there are lots of good bits of advice from readers facing this issue.

:: Last, this one made me scratch my head and wonder just how many of my tax dollars financed the Raw Milk Sting in Maryland detailed by The Happy Housewife. {sigh} Who knew?!

Have a wonderful weekend!
