How I Use Pinterest to Save Me Thousands!
There’s more to Pinterest than the cute bedroom designs and nail tutorials. I use Pinterest to save me THOUSANDS. Probably even closer to TENS of thousands!
You might think that’s an overreaction, but really it isn’t.
- I’ve learned about how to use the envelope system of budgeting from Pinterest.
- I learned my DIY laundry detergent recipe from Pinterest.
- I learned my toothpaste recipe from Pinterest.
- I learned about how to cloth diaper on Pinterest.
- I learned about how being a hippie actually saves money from Pinterest.
- And, my personal favorite so far, I learned about BLOGGING on Pinterest!!
Almost everything about where I am as a
cheapskate frugalista, I learned from Pinterest. To say that Pinterest changed my life might be an understatement.
Did I mention how much I love Pinterest? It’s probably the best part of my job as a blogger! I basically get paid to spend time on Pinterest.
Maybe my favorite things about Pinterest is that it knows what I like. It knows that I love blogging, saving money, working from home, and DIYs. But It also knows that my friend logged in at the same time sitting right next to me loves hair ideas, capsule wardrobes, farmhouse decorating, and wedding ideas.
It still shocks me that Pinterest doesn’t have a “saving money” category. But you can get Pinterest to show you things that you like without needing to weed through the “home feed” showing you DIY things to do with barn doors when all you want to know is how to save money in the summer.
You can trick Pinterest into showing you more of what you like by following more frugal living pinners.
The best way to trick Pinterest into showing you more of what you want is to follow more pinners who post about that category. If you follow and repin more frugal pinners, you’ll see more frugal pins on your homepage without having to search for them.
I want to share with you some of the pinners that changed my life by teaching me how to save money. These are the women (and men) who really know their stuff when it comes to budgeting and pinching pennies.
