Tighten your belt

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.
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!
