    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections above. It's important to start every sentence with a capital letter and to end every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.

    Unfortunately, I cannot understand your question. What does "keeping the best or even the hardest later" mean? Can you try to explain it in a different way?

    Please check the information in your profile. Are you sure your home country (the country where you were born and where you grew up) is Albania?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You can "keep the best for last". But that doesn't apply to "the hardest".

    You could also say Save the best for last.

    That doesn't apply to 'the hardest', either.

    Re: idiom for keeping the best or even the hardest thing later

    They really are two different things.

    I can't think of an idiom for saving the best for last. I usually just say, '...save the best for last.'

    If, by hardest, you mean the most difficult, then I might say, 'We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.'
