Save Money: How to make the power Pinterest work for you

Pinterest. Once you discover its delights, it quickly becomes a big part of your online world.

I spend a lot of my time on Pinterest. Partly for my blog but also to learn about the topics that interest me both professionally and personally.

Unlike other social media platforms, Pinterest is all about information. Yes, there lots of gorgeous pictures, but the vast majority of them lead to information about a specific topic. And, you’ll find pins on just about every topic imaginable. From art to zoology.

The best thing about Pinterest is that you can create your own boards and save all this wonderful information for future reference.

In a way, your Pinterest boards become your very own online library.

Your Pinterest boards can also be instrumental in saving you heaps of money, be more organised and learn new skills.

How can Pinterest save you heaps of money?

Easy. Most bloggers, when they publish an article on their blog, include an image specifically designed for Pinterest. Using that image, you can pin the article to one of your own boards. It’s like adding another book or magazine to your library.

To make pinning easy, follow the right people and your Pinterest feed will be filled with ideas for living frugally and saving money.

To help you on your way, here’s a list of 30 of my favourite frugal living pinners.

You might want to follow all their boards or just the boards that are specific to the topics you’re interested in. Like, saving money, frugal living, cheap and easy recipes, DIY projects or even knitting patterns.

The more you learn, the more self-reliant you become and the more money you can save. It really is a win, win, win situation. And Pinterest makes it so easy that everyone can create their own, tailor made resource library.

Don’t just stick to the obvious money saving idea boards, sometimes the less obvious ones are great inspiration for saving money, too. My favourite example is interiors. You might think you’re just pinning pretty pictures but after a while, you’ll notice a definite trend appearing in the colours, styles and themes in the images you pin to your board. Take notice. It could save you a fortune in decorating mistakes at some point in the future.
