Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    I've just been to the disney shop and spent a fortune on my niece. I got her the tinkerbell dressing up outfit and then thought I might as well get a tinkerbell doll to go with it.

    As I spent over 40 quid they asked me if I wanted to buy a stuffed scented toy for half price and then charged me 5p for the bag!

    I then brought 4 large lindt rabbits to give out at Easter. Have to hide them or the kids will eat them now!

    Some foundation for daughter and Angels for bare faces from lush. (Wish I'd never shown her that shop!:mad:) and for myself? Nothing!:p Tho I did buy myself a crispy creme donut!:cool:
    But if ever I stray from the path I follow
    Take me down to the English Channel
    Throw me in where the water is shallow And then drag me on back to shore!
    'Cos love is free and life is cheap As long as I've got me a place to sleep
    Clothes on my back and some food to eat I can't ask for anything more

  • Bit more exciting than an iron today, I bought 2 sets of matching lingerie from the M&S outlet in Clarks Village. Oh and 3 walnut whips for my mum.

    And now the final frame
