Put in your two cents

Saturday, December 3, 2016

Are you the type of person who willingly offers opinions and suggestions? Maybe you know people like that.

An English expression that conveys a humble way of giving your opinion (sometimes without being asked for it) is to offer or put in your two cents.


- It's just my two cents but I believe the Green Bay Pakcers football team is the best in the world.
- I have an idea but I’d like to get your two cents.
- I’ll give you my two cents if you really want to know what I think.

This phrase came from the original English idiom to put in my two pennies worth which has been shortened to just my two cents.

This is a way of offering your opinion and saying it is only worth two pennies. It represents a modest way of giving your opinion because you are valuing it at only two cents.
