Using Pinterest to Be More Organized
If you’re the DIY sort, Pinterest is the perfect playground to be more organized. No matter what you want to declutter or streamline, there are unlimited tutorials, links, and examples at your fingertips. You can get the inspiration, know-how, and step-by-step directions to declutter, or organize anything. In this post, I’ll share with you the tips for using Pinterest to be more organized.
Here are a few steps I use as I declutter, organize, and repurpose…
Step 1: Create a Board
Pinterest uses boards to collect and save pins that are related. Create boards that relate to the areas of life you want to be more organized. Some examples:
- Organized Closet Spaces
- Perfect Pantry Spaces
- Amazing Kids Rooms
- Monthly Bill Paying with Ease
- Sewing and Crafts Spaces
- Small Yard Landscaping
Once you have a board, start saving pins that inspire you. Even if you know you could never pull off what the original pinner has done, you can always use the inspiration for your project.
Step 2: Research
Once you have pinned plenty of inspiration, it’s time for research. Dive deeper into each pin to see how the author organized or decorated their space. Check out the content and absorb the information so you are ready to take action.
Step 3: Pick a project
After spending your time pinning and researching, pick a project that inspires you. It isn’t wise to start too many projects at once. Narrow down your focus and start small. Once you’ve decided what project you want to tackle, it’s time to take action.
Step 4: Take action, tackle the mess
Using your Pinterest links and images, take action to tackle the mess. Whether it is organizing your junk drawer or creating a play space for your toddler, take action and complete your first project.
Step 5: Record your outcomes
Pinterest works two ways. It can inspire you and you can contribute to the inspiration. Pin before and after shots so others can be inspired by your progress, then write or record a post about your experience. You might discover your project inspires someone else.
