Voles, vendors & voided documents – this week's MSE Forum highlights
It's a short blog this time, as befits a short week, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in pictures of voles munching daisies. Amuse and inform yourself with these MSE Forum highlights.
A few of this week's top threads
A few cheering, handy or otherwise notable discussions that caught our eye this week:
New friends come in all sizes
- I let my TV licence lapse and put my TV into storage while on a 5-month backpacking trip. On return, when I tried to buy a new licence, it was backdated to the expiry of the last one. TV Licensing won’t help unless I can prove the house was unoccupied
- Do you compost your shredded receipts?
- What can I do about the interloping voles in my garden?
Money Moral Dilemma
Every week, the Money Tips email features a real-life Money Moral Dilemma (MMD for short). They're intended to encourage debate and, as such, they're usually among the most discussed threads each week.
Should I share the cash I get selling the hand-me-downs my friend gave me?
My friend gave me a big bag of clothes her daughter had outgrown. My daughter wore and loved them all, and has now outgrown them herself. My friend said she didn't want them back, so I'm planning on selling them. But should I give her half of the profits? She's not short of cash and doesn't use second-hand selling sites, so wouldn't see I was selling them.
