I've Been Pinned! I've Finally Joined Pinterest to Organize My Shoe Box Links

I had well over 100 sites bookmarked that I wanted to visit again for packing shoe boxes.  From blogs about Operation Christmas Child to crochet patterns to free printables.  I knew if I wanted to ever be able to find what I wanted to do in an efficient manner I needed to get organized.  So I decided I'd try Pinterest.  I love it!

I am very visual, so having an image of the project right there in front of me I can just click on it and find my way to the instructions.  And because they offer the ability to sort by numerous "boards" I am able to "file" away the projects or information by topic.

So I joined on Friday and was sick all weekend and Monday, but when I had the strength to be on the computer at all I turned my bookmarks into pins--it was so simple it was mindless, which was great because with my head
feeling like it would explode my  mind was not too with it.  I have made 16 boards and have pinned 188 items already--all to do with filling shoe boxes (or organizing my stuff I use).

I'd love to have you stop by my Pinterest board see what I've pinned--maybe you'll find some inspiration.  And if you are on Pinterest leave your link in a comment below so I can visit your board.  Here are my 16 boards:

I know I have a lot to learn about Pinterest, but so far I am enjoying it.  Are you on Pinterest?  Do you enjoy it?  Do you find it helpful?

I love Pinterest when I have the time. It's great to look at what others enjoy also. Keeps me on my toes also.
