Starting this Monday and over the next two weeks on weekdays, BBC1 has brought back Right on the Money. This third series will be broadcast every morning at a quarter past nine and then repeated on BBC2 at six thirty in the morning on the following day. The presenters will be Denise Lewis and Dominic Littlewood. Over the course of the ten programmes they will be helping families to manage their spending better. Viewers will also be given expert advice on how to save money. Monday’s programme will seek to help a widow who needs financial guidance. Perhaps downsizing her house might solve some of her problems? And talking of houses, the programme features some suggestions as to how your house could earn you money - such as using any spare space in your attic to store other people’s belongings. On Tuesday there is some help given to people who are finding that with a contactless card it means that it is easier to overspend.
