Which one is true: "When I have enough money, I'll buy it" or "When I have enough money I'm going to buy it".

  • These two sentences mean exactly the same thing. They are both grammatically correct (whether they are true or not is a different question, I assume it is not what you intended to ask). The"when" clause not require one or another. Commented Feb 25, 2018 at 17:25

1 Answer 1


I'll = I will

"I will" and "I am going to" are the same meaning.

However, "When I have enough money I'm going to buy it" sounds like a stronger commitment.
