    'at the end' vs 'in the end'

    Hi,

    I know this subject has already been discussed here but I couldn't find the post.

    Could someone please explain what's the difference?

    ''at/in the end of the day I felt very tired''.
    ''at/in the end, he decided not to travel anymore''

    Are there synonyms that replace well these expressions?

    Thanks!

    ''at/in the end of the day i felt very tired''. only "at" is correct here.
    ''at/in the end, he decided not to travel anymore'' only "in" is correct here.

    in the second sentence, "in the end" means 'finally', 'after all'.

    thanks!
