yo iba, the imperfective indicative of the verb ir, actually has both the meanings you mentioned in your question, ie
yo iba - i was going and i used to go. it is the same for both meanings.

Sorry, but I missed that. Somehow I'm not familiar with the verb you're using. Is it SOLIR, SOLER, or what? What does it mean'

EL/ELLA suele EL/ELLA solia

USTEDES suelen USTEDES solian

Si,una leccion muy buena.Creo que entiendo ahora,pero encontre uno error en la leccion.Es asi;cuando voy a las tiendas gasto mucho dinero.No es verdad,no gasto mucho dinero,porque no tengo mucho dinero.Una poca broma,no es muy divertida,yo se,sin dinero no es muy divertido.thanks a million.

Cuando iba (past tense) a las tiendas
When I went to the shops

when I used (past) to go to the shops
Cuando acostumbraba (past) ir a las tiendas

Si es en present tense seria asi: Cuando voy a las tiendas.

Cuando voy a las tiendas gasto mucho dinero. (present) When I go shopping I spend a lot of money.
Cuando iba a las tiendas gastaba mucho dinero (past) When I went/used to go shopping I spent a lot of money.

Wasn't writing a sentence,just trying to determine the difference between,iwas going ,and,i used to go in spanish,if there isa difference.How about;when i used to go to the shops,they were open until eight.(checked a book that mentions,soler,the imperfect of,and the infinitive,so is that;solia ir or what.'

It all depends on the context. Show us the sentence you are trying to write.
