Using In or Into

As I learn little tricks to remember grammar rules, I'll share them. Today I thought up how to remember when to use IN or INTO.

Use IN to show a location. Use INTO with an action. I wouldn't remember this without my little trick. I'd never say jack into the box. It's jack in the box. So when you're trying to remember which to use, think of jack IN the box.
