Wallpaper, wine & water bills – this week's MSE Forum highlights
So far this year we've welcomed even more new members to the MSE Forum than usual, and as ever the boards are bursting with MoneySaving questions, tips and lively debate.
Here's a selection of what caught our eye recently:

- I bought my dream car but now I’ve got a massive bill for repairs.
- After 5 years, my provider has sent me a ‘final bill’ for £0.00.
- Help me find tasty MoneySaving recipes that use five ingredients or fewer.
- Can I bake a cake in my slow cooker?
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.
Is it OK if I choose to sell something to a woman rather than a man?
I've £100 worth of laminate flooring that I've put up for sale online cheaply to get rid of. As the buyer will have to collect, and I'm a woman who lives alone, I've been reluctant to accept any of the offers I've had as they're all from men. I said to a friend that I hoped a woman would make an offer, even if it was lower, as I'd feel safer dealing with them, but my friend said that's unfair and I should sell to the first person who offered the asking price. Should I wait for an offer from someone I'm comfortable giving my address to or do as my friend says?
