    'in the first place' or 'To begin with' correct?

    Hello all,

    I've used both in my conversations, although I don't know which one's correct or to be used or preferred over another.

    Would you help me?

    Sentence:

    1) Why didn't you say that in the first place?
    2) Why didn't you say that to begin with?

    Help,
    Vinod,
    Navi Mumbai, India
