Where do you put enough in a sentence?
enough comes before nouns. There isn't enough bread to make sandwiches. Have you got enough money?
Adverb I couldn't run fast enough to catch up with her. She's old enough to know better. Are you rich enough to retire? That's good enough for me.
Enough is often used as a synonym for sufficient, and when something is not sufficient, it is too little to take care of what's needed. Sufficient can, however, also suggest just enough and not an abundance, as in "the money was sufficient for groceries, but we needed more to fill the gas tank."
Enough is a determiner, a pronoun or an adverb. We use enough to mean 'as much as we need or want'.
Adverbs of degree are usually placed before the adjective, adverb, or verb that they modify, although there are some exceptions. The words "too", "enough", "very", and "extremely" are examples of adverbs of degree.
If you say 'enough said', you mean that what you have just said is enough to make a point clear, and that there is no need to say any more. My husband is a jazz musician. Enough said.

You can use it instead of “besides,” “in addition,” “also,” or “as well.” But you can use it for other things, too, like when you want to indicate excessiveness. If you find grammar tough, you can say that it's too hard. In casual speech, speakers sometimes use too in the sense of “very”: That gal is too funny!
When should I use too?
“Too” is an adverb. It can be used to replace words such as “excessively”, “additionally”, “as well” or “also”. “To”, on the other hand, is a versatile preposition that can be used in various situations and contexts. It's used to indicate a direction, like “toward” and “until”.
Summary. Use too for negative situations and enough for positive ones. Too comes before the adjective or adverb it's describing, while enough comes after the adjective or adverb. Enough comes before a noun, whereas too is never used before a noun.
Enough is an adjective that describes something that is adequate for an intended purpose. Enough is also used as an adverb to mean sufficiently or fully. Enough also has senses as a pronoun and an interjection.
Remember, 'enough' as well is considered informal and the formal term for it is 'sufficient'.
