January is traditionally a month for money-saving resolutions, with many people forced to tighten the purse strings after going gung-ho with the plastic over Christmas and New Year.

Indeed, according to new figures from National Debtline, almost eight million people are predicted to finish January behind with their finances, thanks to the festive spending frenzy.

To help you get your finances in order, we highlight some great apps for saving money on supermarket shopping, household bills and other everyday savings.
