Set aside / Put aside
I'm just wondering what is the difference of using "Set aside" and "Put aside"? Can I use both when I'm referring to money? Like these:
1. I have to set aside some money to buy a PS3.
2. I need to put aside some money for my future needs.
Are these correct? Thanks in advance.
Re: Set aside / Put aside
to set aside:to save for a particular purpose
e.g:He sets aside some time every day to read to his children.
to put aside:to save (something, esp. money) for use at a later time
e.g:We're putting aside $20 a week for our vacation.
hope it helps!
