  • Wow, it's great to hear the story behind Mr MSE!

    You and your team have managed to save me from total debt annihilation a few years ago (after reading your article on debt I decided I needed to take drastic action!), helped me recover bank charges and PPI charges totaling almost £1500, saved me lots on my household bills, food shopping, car insurance, and of course pizza! You guys even let me know that a £465 dress i'd coveted for almost 6 months was reduced by 85% through the forum, so proved to be well worth the wait as I bought it outright with my christmas money, not on my recently fully paid off credit card :j

    Thank you thank you thank you Martin and the MSE team!

    But the interesting question is what's the best way to work it out.
