    in and out

    Hi

    What does the phrase in and out mean?


    Could I start a sentence with:

    Every day, in and out.... . I cannot finish the sentence because I don`t know the exact meaning of in and out.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi Teja,

    It occurred to me that when you wrote your sentence "Every day, in and out..." you were actually thinking of the following: "Every day, day in and day out..."

    That's a phrase you can use if you mean every day, all day long.

    Ex. "I work day in and day out trying to keep this house clean, so the least you guys can do is take off your muddy shoes before coming inside!"

    This has nothing to do with the phrase in and out, however.

    Yes, I thought of 'day in day out' as well.
