I spent so much time combing Pinterest for decorating ideas, awesome recipes, fun products, fashion tips and entertaining notions that I finally started to feel a little guilty for wasting so much time there. But of course, Pinterest was not designed to be a time-waster. It was designed so people could create and view inspirational pin boards.
It started with fashion ideas. I created a board called Looks Good to inspire me to get dressed every morning (which, let me tell you is sometimes a challenging prospect when you're self-employed). Then I started chronicling and reviewing the recipes I'd discovered through Pinterest on Finders Keepers since I kept losing my favorite recipes in the quagmire that is my recipe board.
It was around the time I was contemplating trying out a tip I saw on Pinterest about getting yellow stains out of white clothes that I decided to start writing about my Pinteresting adventures.
I don't want to say that Pinterest changed my life. I mean, how awful is that? A website changed your life, Ali? Really? But I'm not sure what else to call something that has completely changed the way I make my home, cook meals for my family, dress myself and approach my days.
So...um...here's how Pinterest changed my life.
