Cash calendar - financial tips for June
With the average bill at Christmas totalling more than £500, an advice service suggests that now is the time to start to budget for the festive season.
The BBC News website asked the independent Money Advice Service to deliver a calendar of month-by-month tips for those trying to keep their personal finances in order.
Melanie Dowding, from the service, says halfway through the year is a good time to draw up a savings plan to pay for Christmas.
