Many writers confuse 'to' vs. 'too'.

To is a preposition with several meanings, including “toward” and “until.”
Too is an adverb that can mean “excessively” or “also.”
• Just to be clear: two is pronounced the same as 'to' and 'too', but it can’t be used instead of either of them because it’s a number.

When to Use TO

• It can also be used as an infinitive verb: I don’t have any plans for the weekend, I want to take a rest.

• My dog was trying to sleep, but it was too hot.
• I wanted to buy this shirt, but it was too expensive.
