Basically title, but is the meaning of the Indonesian phrase "tanggal Tua". Any ideas?

There is an expression I've heard about there being
"too much month at the end of the money"
this is a play on the more usual (and beneficial!) phrase where you would be considering to do with your excess money at the end of the month.
The question seems to be what you would name that period of time.
You could try
The end of the month
This makes an assumption that is true in most situations, that people are paid at the start or end of the month. It's usually understood:
Would you like to go for a pint? I can't, end of the month, you know?
A little less idiomatically, but you'd be understood if you referred to it as
Money gets pretty tight before payday.
