How I Use Pinterest to Stay Organized

Ah, Pinterest – a favorite way to waste some time for many, many gals out there. You can scroll for hours and pin things to your boards – planning your wedding, saving recipes, future hairstyles, etc. I definitively do this and have a ton of boards to prove it. I use Pinterest for inspiration, wishlists, and organizing!

It dawned on me that most people pin things they WISH they had instead of things they ALREADY have. I decided to try something out. I started organizing things that I own via Pinterest about a year and a half ago and it’s been so helpful. I can access my Pinterest right on my phone and double check my boards so I don’t accidentally buy something I already have OR make sure what I’m looking at buying goes with my previous items. I have a few boards strictly for makeup, but I also have my whole vinyl collection on there, too. I love it and highly, highly recommend it! I’ve been trying to slowly add to my boards of things that I already have. I’d love to have my wardrobe on there, but that would be a huge task that I doubt I’ll ever actually get done.

It’s been great for keeping track of makeup items so far, but I can see where this would be useful for books, shoes, or anything else you collect and want to see what you’ve already got on the go. Do you have boards like this to stay organized? What kinds of things do you keep track of? Comment and let me know!
