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

    Faggots are really just large meatballs made with offal and anything! They can be nice; it depends!

    I made a risotto Moroccan fusion dish, with lamb mince, garlic, red cabbage, Bleu D'Auvergne potatoes and baby spinach, and a Moroccan sauce in a jar, and risotto rice. I'm really into rice at the mo.
    I was just using up stuff in the fridge!

    Goodness....a pack of soup mix veg from Aldi (carrot, parsnip, potato and onion I think - saves me chopping so much stuff!), two more carrots, a butternut squash, kale, spring greens, spinach, what was left over from last week's soup, chicken stock, fresh basil, thyme, rosemary and sage, s and p, chilli flakes, an onion.

    I think that was it. I forgot to buy courgette and celery :mad:

    I've had some soup, and some butties.
    And i made bread this afternoon so i've eaten the crusts.
    Liverpool is one of the wonders of Britain,
    What it may grow to in time, I know not what.
