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.

    Another addition - the Blaze has everything I like in a Fitbit but in full OLED colour and very slim. Battery life is 5 days between charges. It came with a blue silicone band and I bought another camel leather one (more formal) - not cheap but nice.


    Since the weather has been so calm and rain-free I've been outside as much as possible - yesterday's activity was quite normal for me; I've been eating a lot more and am now 11 St or 70Kg exactly.

    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    Nice collection - I had a brown ceramic Rado at one time but sold it when I needed money.

    I remedied that today by purchasing a Rado Centrix Diamonds... a small fortune but I can't take money with me when I go; plus, I felt like treating myself. I don't think I've got any of the watches I posted earlier, but I do have a Tag and an Apple Watch so that makes 3.

    1 cheap digital watch. I don't wear it much though as I get annoyed when straps break. I only wear it if I am away and use the alarm on it to wake me up in the morning. Otherwise it lives in my coat pocket.

    I own six watches. They all have different times and they all cost money!

    One. A Hello Kitty one (more of an adult one than kids one :p :rotfl: ) but the strap needs fixing.

    Down to one as I wear my Garmin fenix 3 constantly and just change the watch face depending. ie. If I am smart at work I use a classic analogue face, for all other times a digital version.

    If I'm tracking a walk I'll wear my Apple Watch on my right wrist for tracking and music; on the other wrist I'll wear one of my Swiss watches leaving my phone at home.
