My Two Cents

Meaning/Usage: To give or share your opinion

Explanation: This came from the original expression, "my two pennies worth."  It has been shortened recently to just "my two cents."  This is a way of offering your opinion and saying that is only worth two pennies.  It can be seen as a humble way of giving your opinion because you are valuing it at only two cents, but that is not the case these days.

"I don't agree with what's happening.  That's just my two cents."
"You didn't ask for my two cents but I'll tell you anyway."
"Just to add my two cents, but I believe changing the design will be a better idea."

A.  "So you don't think I should spend that much money on a car?"
B.  "You can spend whatever you want but that's my two cents."

Other Common Sentences

"That's my opinion."
"That's what I think about it."
