“Happy wife = happy life “ - I always loved that phrase - Let’s give him some subtle hints to make his life a little easier shall we.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Pinning on Pinterest. Everybody’s on there and it doesn’t look like it’ll go out of style any time soon. Pinterest.com boasts over 70 million users and growing each day – me being one of them. It’s an addiction (so beware) but very effective tool if organized and used smartly!
It’s pretty much my online wish list / idea filing cabinet. Places I wish to see, things I wish I had, meals I wish to make – some of it doable, some of it in dreamland… For those of you who aren’t among the 70 million, let me teach you how to join the club and use it to get the gifts you really want.
First comes first – you have to go Pinterest.com and sign up for an account, using either your Facebook account or through email. Fill in the information that it prompts, confirm your email, and then you’re good to go to create your first board!
Before you start to pin, you need a place for those pins to go, that’s where “Boards” come in. What’s a “Board” you ask? Well, Boards are Pinterest-speak basically for folders.
I suggest starting with some core wish lists titled such as “Jewelry Wish List” or “Clothing Wish List” or “Shoes I Must Have!”… You get the idea.
After those are set up, you can create ever more boards to organize your interests such as “Home Décor Ideas”, “Travel”, “Recipes” or “Books I like to Read” and so on.
Always categorize your boards by titles that make them easy to find later, and that also makes things clearer for people whom you want to share them with. Once a few boards are ready, you can start pinning!
Pining away for something? Then pin it! A pin is a picture and that you store on Pinterest that links back to the original source for easy reference. There are 3 ways to pin. Below, to the left, is a screen shot of the task bar which can be found in the upper right corner of your account by clicking on the big red + sign. To the right is how to RePin.
Now for the fun part…Here are a couple of ways to drop a not so subtle gifting giving hint.
It’s as easy as that, my friend. So I challenge you today to create your first Wish List Pinterest board and start pinning. Check out this handy "How To" PIN that was created with you in mind to jump start this! RE-PIN it if you find it helpful. Leave a link below in the comments to your favorite new board that you created. I am always looking for an excuse to get distracted and repin. Get ready for your addiction to begin!
