Spanish Idioms, #12: Consultar Con La Almohada

Consultar con la almohada.

Literally, this translates to “consult with the pillow.” I absolutely love this phrase! The most commonly used English equivalent is “sleep on it,” and we generally use it when there’s a decision we have to make that we’re unsure about. Or if, for whatever reason, we need more time to give our opinion.

Some examples:

“Si no estás seguro, debes consultar con tu almohada.”

“If you’re unsure, you should sleep on it.”

“Realmente no lo sé, tendré que consultar con la almohada.

“I really don’t know, I will have to sleep on it.”
