    keep it to yourself

    Imagine you have lent sth to someone. After he returned it to you, you would tell him that you dont need that thing any more. What would you say :

    keep it to yourself
    keep it for yourself
    Take it for yourself
    Take it for you

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: keep it to yourself

    You could simply say "keep it".

    "keep it to yourself" is normally idiomatic meaning "don't tell anybody".
