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

    :hello: Good morning lovely Alphabettys in Happy Chatty Land!

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this fun-filled 'n
    foodie Friday! :grin: :dance: :drool: Today it's ....

    :T :dance::dance::dance:

    If you’re tired of keeping your feet in stuffy shoes and
    need an excuse to expose those toes, Flip-Flop Day may
    just be the answer. ;)

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSxIzR_5zeQMiH43tn90fZVJAMS98_4UHGPqXsQv2dsH2wpW77x

    People have been wearing flip-flops for thousands of years,
    with the earliest wearers being the Ancient Egyptians in
    4000BC.

    42a71f30712b9a92b279d1f95dab113e.jpg

    Since then, the sandals have been worn throughout
    the world and have become a favourite for people enjoying
    a relaxing day at the beach

    :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    or walking around in the sunshine.

    :doh:

    Flip-flops got their name because of the slapping
    sound they make against the ground when you walk in
    them! :D

    :idea:

    Flip-flop day was founded by Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

    Customers who visit a participating Cafe on Flip-Flop Day
    wearing – you guessed it, flip-flops – will receive a free
    smoothie. :T (USA based)

    Not only does Tropical Smoothie Cafe give its customers
    a free drink and the chance to air their feet, it also uses
    Flip-Flop Day to raise money for Camp Sunshine – a camp
    that offers respite and support to children with life-
    threatening illnesses and their families. :T :A

    Even if you don’t have a Tropical Smoothie Cafe near you,
    why not find your own way to celebrate the day? _party_

    Dig out your favourite pair of flip-flops and take a stroll
    along the beach or through the park. :grin:

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQA5exsCa0LMk3TmawuhUNxQqY4JZAXMRcrb-hSUWs1HwClNcqo

    If the weather isn’t quite right for sandals, you could put
    on some warmer footwear and go shopping for a great
    new pair of flip-flops to be more prepared for when the
    sun does arrive! :T

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTv4mF_qLE8bW_fgqMOIlXXSZ68ercJESXa5dDjAlVf5L2XXtp3

    :whistle:

    Not feeling like leaving the house at all? :think: Why not put on
    flip-flops instead of your usual slippers :p and wear them
    at home to get yourself in the mood for summer? :cool:

    Although flip-flops can be great to wear on a fun casual
    day out, just be careful not to wear them for too long – the
    lack of support in flip-flops and their thin soles can lead to
    sore or injured feet! :eek:
