1. We use it when something is more than it should be,when conditions are beyond what is right or reasonable - they are extreme, not good, negative:

London is too expensive to live in.
"exaggerate the tooooo - tooooo much, tooooo many."
2. We use it to mean “also” or “as well”:
Can I come too?
I’m going on holiday too.
*When remembering if it means "also" and "as well" just say "as well" instead of too. Do you want to come too/as well/ also?
informal meaning very: You’re too kind. Also in negative sentences: The weather's not too bad.
We use it as part of a verb when you want to say “to do something”:
I want her to listen to me.
He plans to move to a bigger house.
We use it before a noun to show “going towards”:
It is quarter to four
Give that to me!
Also be careful of the 2/3 syllable words beginning with to-
today, tomorrow, tonight, together, towards.
