    was going to /was planning to / planned

    Dear Teachers,

    I need to complete the other sentence using the word in brackets. They should both mean the same.

    1) I planned to do the shopping but I left my wallet at home. (was)

    I ________________________ but I left my wallet at home.

    I think the right answer is:

    2) I was going to do the shopping but I left my wallet at home.

    But I cannot exlude the following one.

    3) I was planning to do the shopping but I left my wallet at home.

    Do the three sentences mean the same? If there is a difference in meaning, please explain it to me.

    Thank you in advance,

    I have read a bit since I posted my previous message. I think I should have asked if there is any difference between 1) and 3). 2) and 3) probably mean the same.
