Using Pinterest To Save Money


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the latest social media sensation called Pinterest. It’s a big virtual bulletin board where users can post pictures of just about anything and group them into collections like, “Things I love,” “Books to Read,” and “Things I’m passionate about.” While I’m not on Pinterest personally, a friend asked me to check out her board.

    That’s a great idea for how consumers can get value from Pinterest. I’m constantly amazed at the creative uses people are finding for Pinterest. I’ve seen resumes created on Pinterest, travel itineraries and secret family recipes. What’s your Pinterest user name? I’m “jamesfacts”

    Awesome article! Love how you broke down some categories and provided details! I have never tried Pinterest personally but it looks like it would be addicting!

    I agree with everyone, great article! I’m also a Pinterest user and the site is very addicting. I have to ask, have you heard of Clipix? It is a similar bookmarking website that I have been using to save more personal finds and documents. Clipix has a feature called price drop alert that notifies you when a product you have added drops to your desired amount. It’s great and I have a feeling you are going to enjoy that feature.

    I absolutely love Pinterest. The only problem I find with it is that it’s rather addicting and I spend far too much time on it when I should be doing other things. If you have the discipline to use it as a resource, you can learn a lot of things and a lot of ways to save money.
