Can someone give me a sample sentence with this form of poner: poníamos?

Por ejemplo...


We were putting the tools in the wrong box


Nosotros estábamos poniendo las herramientas en la caja equivocada
Nosotros poníamos las herramientas en la caja equivocada

  • You have given an example sentence so it is not clear to me what your question is. Do you have some doubt about your example?

    Drop the nosotros. No one would use it there. Poníamos mucho pan en la sopa cuando era joven.

Searching in the CREA (http://corpus.rae.es/creanet.html) you get hundreds of examples:

and if you click in poniamos in any of the examples, it shows you the paragraph, not yust part of the sentense.
