Last week, I was browsing pinterest and landed on my own profile. I realized that I had TWENTY ONE boards. While there’s nothing wrong with that, I felt a certain clutter about how I had organized it. Yes, pinterest may be online, but I felt a strong urge to give it some spring cleaning, just as I would with my own closet.

I went from 21 to 5 general boards that I pull the most inspiration from : Art/design, interiors, photography, fashion/beauty, and food. Most of you probably think I’m crazy for doing this, since there is no easy way to move your pins around to new boards. It took about an hour and by the end of it, my fingers hurt … but I felt organized. And that’s all I wanted!

    nope, not crazy at all!I’ve like 16 boards and still think is too much, although i really love my boards, but I like when people I follow are so organized, great job!:)

    Wowzers, that takes dedication, man! I’d love to give mine a major haul too, but I just don’t have the focus to change everything piece by piece. So kudos, dude!

    Nothing wrong with cleaning up a messy Pinterest board(s)! It brings easier navigation for you and easier on the eye (in my opinion) good work!

      TOTALLY easier on the eyes … and easier to pin. I used to have to sit there and decide which board a pin of mine would go into. Now that I have divided it up, I haven’t had a problem. ;)

  4. good lord that is a cute design! you’re so good at putting images together.

  5. Ooh, I like this idea. I haven’t used Pinterest much yet so thankfully don’t have many pins but I think I’ll have to minimize in a similar manner. I hate digital clutter just as much as the physical kind.

    No worries! I was the same way. I went from 15 to 5 and still feel that it’s too much.

    i so, kind of, started this and it is on my list of to do’s and always on my mind. I just cannot believe you did it in an hour. That is pretty amazing! I have got to learn to work faster :)

    Ha, I totally get you! The other day I organised and renamed all my boards and now everything fits (although i had a million other things to do, like real organising ;). I felt so good afterwards!
