This is an open thread for participants in the Monday Mail articles to share their experiences, and hopefully let us know if they found what they were looking for (or went bankrupt trying). I'm sending out emails tonight requesting feedback from everyone who took part between May and August of this year, so check back over the next few days to see what we can find out.
Here are links to the articles for each participant:
Thank you to Natalie for suggesting the open thread!
