    The first meaning of too is 'also' or 'besides'; the second is 'excessively' or 'extra'. Some people also use it to mean 'very'. Think of 'too' as being relevant when there is an increase of something, eg too hot, too challenging.

    Use 'to' for expressing direction, place or position, eg I went to the beach. It is also used before a verb in the infinitive, eg to run.

    Another hint:  If the word "also" makes sense in the sentence, then use "too"

    She is crazy and mean too!

    It can also suggest extra - I ate too much! We have too many cats in the house. etc.

    to - gives direction or points to a place or answers "where"  - I went to the store.  I walked to the corner. I want to go there. etc.
