It's the beginning of the month, and Fox 25 Consumer Watch has some of the best deals to look out for in June. Summer time means some big spending months coming your way. Kids will also be at home and you may be doing more traveling, so save where you can.

June is a good time to start checking projects off of your to-do list, and right now you are likely to find hardware and tools on sale. Paint sales are also common in June. In certain parts of the country it may be too hot to paint the outside of your home, but you can buy the paint you may need for a project later in the year, and save some cash now.

Ladies, if you are in need for new undies, the Victoria’s Secret semiannual sale usually lands this month too. This special includes major discounts of 50-percent off or more.

Also cheap this month, certain Caribbean vacations. You can find some discounted deals, but it is the start of hurricane season in the area, so keep an eye on the weather before you decide to book a trip. No matter where you book a trip this summer, be familiar with cancellation policies. Bad weather during travel or at your destination may force you to postpone your trip.

Last, but not least, Father's Day is on Sunday, June 17th this year. Don't leave dad hanging! Keep an eye out for Father's Day sales ahead of the holiday.
