    every time-regularly; each time-once in a while or once in a blue moon; any time-?

    Hello all users!

    1. Both tablets have similar specs. While neither tablet is heavy, the Negus 2 is lighter. This could make a difference every time (that) you go out.
    2. Each time (that) you need to replace something in your home, like a washing machine no problem, you can pay for it.
    3. You may call on me any time (that) you like

    In my opinion, "every time" in sentence 1 is used when we are talking about regularity (something is done on a regular basis) whereas "each time" in sentence 2 is used when something is done not so often and irregularly. I am in two minds about using "any time".

    Do you agree with me about sentence 1 and 2 and could you help me out with sentence 3 (when is "any time" used?).

    Thank you.

    I agree with your comments. Sentence 3 is also correct. Use 'any time' to leave the frequency unspecified and open.
