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.

    The way my dog searches out a bit of shade when we stop outside but when at home he lies down where the sun is streaming through the window :D

    2 things that brought a smile to my grizzled face today :)

    Found 2 pairs of walking boots in the cupboard that I had forgotten that I had bought so it was like getting them for nothing :T

    Bought a pair of trousers today, 2 waist sizes smaller than I last bought, really brought home just how much weight that I have lost :T :D

    Its not that we have more patience as we grow older, its just that we're too tired to care about all the pointless drama ;)

    Glove box, door pockets, ash tray, spare wheel well and under the back seat.

    Not quite hundreds of sovereigns inside an old piano but £1.62 nevertheless :j
