    Difference between "i've found" and "i found"

    Hi! Please help me, i'm struggling with the sentence.
    What is the difference between "I found the way to spend our time" and "I've found the way to spend our time"? Which one is more correct to use?

    Welcome to the forum. Lusa5.

    The answer to your question depends on context. If you are locating the finding in the past, then use the past tense. If you are concerned with the present relevance of the past finding, then use the present perfect.

    Lusa, always capitalise 'I'.
