If you are knitting continental style, you can make your purl stitches tighter by thinking (and doing) to "press down" on the working yarn strand with your left index finger after you pickup & wrap it on the needle.

For me, this is a bit too automatic at times, so my purl gauge is almost always tighter than is my knit gauge.
