Christenings, cookbooks & cover-ups – this week's MSE Forum highlights
If you like this week's MSE Forum highlights, we reckon you should log in (or sign up) and participate in some of them.
Here's a bit of what caught our eye recently:
- When you invite friends over, is it acceptable to split the bill on a takeaway?
- What's the worst thing you've found when buying a property? Or the worst thing you've covered up when selling?
- My trusted Lidl quilted loo roll has changed from 4-ply to 3-ply so I’m walking. What’s a decent alternative?
- I found out I’ve been paying for my neighbour’s electricity for the past 14 years
- The vet gave my dog more vaccinations than he was booked in for and is demanding I pay the extra. What are my rights?
Got any tips for printing and framing posters cheaply?
- My son bought a bungalow after the local searches showed it had never flooded. Then it flooded; neighbours say it’s done so twice before. What are his rights?
- What’s the cheapest way to print and frame some A4 posters?
- Please recommend me an air fryer cookbook
- Is there a cheap, effective alternative to Epsom salts?

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.
Can I keep some of the cash from selling my daughter's christening present?
My daughter was given an antique toy as a christening present 18 years ago, which she stopped playing with long ago and says she no longer wants. I mentioned this to an acquaintance with an interest in antiques, and they put me in touch with a buyer who, after some haggling on my part, is willing to pay a significant sum for it. Do I give all the money to my daughter, as it was her present, or would it be reasonable to keep some for myself as she no longer wanted it and I found the buyer?
See what our MSE Forumites had to say and add your own thoughts on the Money Moral Dilemma discussion thread. Do please stick to the MSE Forum rules: keep it kind and keep it clean. Remember, there's a real person behind every dilemma.
