ACET Idiom of the day!!



Worth its weight in gold can be said when someone wants to express gratitude to somebody else for helping them out in a situation. For example, if we were preparing for a big party 🙂 and a friend helps us to get everything prepared, we could say to our friend at the end “You really are worth your weight in gold!”
Similarly, one can also refer to an inanimate object as being worth its weight in gold. It can be used if something is extremely useful or valuable. For example if you are assembling a piece of flat-pack furniture at home, the instruction manual is definitely worth its weight in gold!!!
