When do you use "I" versus "me" in a sentence?
When trying to figure this out, an easy exercise is the remove the other noun from sentence and then say it out loud. For example: "Did you invite Jenna and me?" Test it out: "Did you invite Jenna?" "Did you invite me?" Both of these sound correct, so it is okay to use me in this instance. "Me and Jenna bought gifts" Test it out again: "Jenna bought gifts" "Me bought gifts" This is an instance where one option does not sound right, so you would switch to "Jenna and I bought gifts"
