Streamline your life with the help of social media!  Pinterest is a popular, image-based social media site that allows you to create boards dedicated to your interests and hobbies.  It can also be used to plan meals, workouts, home renovations, special events and much more.  Here are five ways to use Pinterest to make your life easier.

1. Plan events. Whether you’re planning your wedding, your
child’s birthday party or a summer barbeque, Pinterest offers  PinterestPics
a wealth of ideas to help you host a party that your guests
are sure to remember. Create a board for your event and pin
games to play, food to serve, festive themes and much more.

2. Plan your family’s meals for the week. Pinterest is a great
place to find new recipes as well as new twists on old favorites.
Nurture healthy eating by creating a Pinterest board of your
meals for the week. Fill it with healthy alternatives to your
family’s favorites, as well as snacks, smoothies, salads, etc.

3. Get design inspiration for a home renovation. In addition
to scouring design magazines for design tips and inspiration,
head over to Pinterest to find ideas to remodel your kitchen,
turn your basement into a man cave or give your home décor
a modern twist. Additionally, Houzz features tons of
Ideabooks full of inspiration. Create your own Ideabook and
save design photos or bookmark articles to reference at a
later date.

4. Find workout tips and inspiration. If you’re looking
for a new fitness routine, health tips or just need a bit
of motivation to work out, head to the Pins. Pinterest
has divided its health and fitness section into several
subcategories including yoga, men’s fitness and
running that is geared toward the interests of pinners.
Plan your workouts for the week and find new
mantras to get you moving.

5. Look for a DIY project. Pinterest is the DIY-lover’s
dream. Want to refurbish a dresser or cabinet you
found at a yard sale, or have the urge to create a chair
from a shipping pallet? See how other pinners have
painted and improved similar furniture. Additionally,
Houzz features articles that include tips to guide you
through a DIY project.
