    Smile money id tight

    Since money was tight, we settled for a short trip to the north.


    I like to use different words to say the same things. So, could I write "we were tight of/short of/in short of money" to replace "money is tight?" Thanks.

    How about:

    money was scarce?

    scarce: (adj.)

    "If something is scarce, there is not enough of it."
