Grammar and Spelling Tips - Your and You're

Your refers to something that belongs to “you;” you’re means “you are”.

Examples:film A Million Ways to Die in the West online streaming

Is that your coat or mine?
Your house is much bigger than my house.

If you don’t listen to me more carefully, you’re going to be sorry!
You’re the oldest one here, so you choose first.

It’s not my fault you’re so hungry—after all, it’s you who forgot to bring your lunch today!

 
Still unsure? Use you’re whenever you want to say “you are”, i.e. “you’re” my best friend; use your whenever you want to show that something belongs to someone, i.e. it’s “your” choice.
