Which one are you more likely to use?

So I don't know what's the difference between tous les jours and chaque jour. I would like to know which one is used more often and in what context.

Thanks! :P

tous les jours is every day and chaque jour is each day.

    They are pretty much interchangeable, just as every day (not a literal translation - all the days is closer, but we wouldn't say that in English) and each day are in English.

    However, as a basic starting-point, tous les jours is more flexible, because you can switch it a bit, so tous les deux jours gives you every other day, toutes les deux semaines, every second week, etc.
