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

    And i made bread this afternoon so i've eaten the crusts.
    Now, that's interesting! If by crusts you mean the ends of the loaf, I grew up calling them the nobbies. Now if you don't ever call the end of the bread the nobby, you'll find that hilarious! :D:p

    I can't make my mind up, I've got a gammon steak, do I cook it with new potatoes and carrots or with mushrooms and scrambled egg. I'm getting worse at eating, I've not had anything all day yet and I know I need to eat something, just got no motivation.

  • I was going to make turkey meatballs but they sent me turkey thigh meat instead of mince with my Tesco delivery so I made a curry - all Weight Watchers pointed as I'm trying to lose some weight. Was very nice, well the boys ate it too, so it passed muster. While that was cooking I made celeriac, apple and carrot remoulade for my lunch tomorrow and managed to grate the side of my thumb into it too - it'll be extra protein I suppose!
    Over futile odds
    And laughed at by the gods
    And now the final frame
    Love is a losing game

    Just checked the microwave and I have Pork, chickpea, tomato, chilli and olive stoup (a cross between a soup and a stew) which cost about 60p a portion!
    I'm on new meds and they have really taken my appetite away :(
