Pinterest: No more paper clutter

no more paper clutter




Look out Good Housekeeping and Real Simple, there’s a new cowgirl in town. We all love our magazines where we pull out important articles, recipes to try and beautiful interiors to copy in our home.  With the new social network Pinterest, we can search online for all these and have easy access whenever we want to look for something new.  No need for magazines to enjoy this fun!  No more paper clutter!

Pinterest was started with the idea of sharing.  It is really a tool for women who love to see and experience.   With Pinterest, you create categories on “boards” that are shared with friends.

Pinterest eliminates your need for paper clutter by creating these boards.

  • Interiors, design and color, for renovation or new building
  • Recipes your friends love too, especially ones made from brownies, peanut butter cups and chocolate chip cookie dough
  • Teacher ideas for the classroom, for whatever grade or content area you teach
  • Personal style boards, including monogramming, favorite colors, and what were they thinking
  • Reuse/reduce/recycle ideas for items you have at home and love

Word of warning, that Pinterest can be addicting! You are jumping to lots of new websites, with lots to see. So set your timer for 15 minutes to be able to hop off.

So it may be time for you to start eliminating paper, using this new digital technology.  It can be loaded onto your ipad, tablet or slate to take it with you too!  You can search to star new boards with the easy search tool too!

    I used to go crazy tearing recipes out of magazines! I’d often go through them later and ask myself, “What was I thinking?” I’m a lot more realistic these days, but even so, it’s nice to be able to keep as many recipes (and other “clippings” as I want, without having to store them in a user-friendly fashion!

    So true. I would tear out the magazine recipes I would try and place in a 3 inch binder by topic. Now, I just post the magazine recipes from the magazine website on Pinterest. Every week, I find recipes for the next week’s meals. It is also so much easier to find a recipe than go through a binder.
