Keep in mind

"Things to keep in mind..."

If you need to remember information that could be important or useful at a later time, you can keep it in mind.

If you keep someone in mind, it means that they remain in your thoughts. This could be for personal or professional reasons. 

You can use this phrase as a reminder, warning, or statement. It can be used in the past, present, and future tenses by conjugating the verb "keep." You can also modify this expression by adding a noun or pronoun in between "keep" and "in mind." Here are a few examples:

  • Allison is coming over for dinner tomorrow. She’s allergic to nuts, so we'll have to keep that in mind when we’re buying the food. 
  • For the GBC exam, please keep in mind that examiners will be evaluating both your fluency and accuracy.

A. Thank you for dropping by to meet the team. We don’t have a job available right now, but we’ll keep you in mind if a position opens up.
B. That would be great. I look forward to hearing from you.

Did you know? You can also say "bear in mind," which basically means the same thing.
