Tighten your belt

If you tighten your belt you try to spend less money because you haven't got as much to spend as you did before.

Examples:

Since I started working part-time I've had to tighten my belt.

Celebrating Christmas is going to cost us a lot of money so we're all going to have to tighten our belts.

Take note

Being tight is used to describe people who do not like to spend their money.

Example:

My brother is so tight; all he bought me for my birthday was a cheap pair of socks!
