Still don't get を and に in a sentence together. Help please!

Hi all,

 

It's been an age and a day since I've done the lessons that involves the verb 入れます as the first examples of using two nouns in conjunction with a verb. For example:

コーヒーにぎゅうにゅうをいれます。

I put milk in my coffee.


Or at least, I hope that's what it says. I still keep getting the に and を in the sentence mixed up. If any one has any examples of sentences like these, I would appreciate them a lot, since right now just seeing the two example sentences isn't enough for me to learn the rule properly, even if I know what the correct answer for the drill is.

Thank you!

Try breaking it down into two parts. You have the object you're adding something to or changing, which uses に (コーヒーに). Then you have what you're putting in which uses を (ぎゅうにゅうをいれます). For example "I put money in my wallet": さいふに おかねを いれます。The wallet (さいふ) is what I'm putting the money in so it uses に whereas the money (おかね) is the thing I'm actually doing the action with.
