I admit it. I have a new obsession. It's Pinterest. Not that I am on it every waking moment, but I check it out almost every day. I'm not re-doing a home, I'm not planning a wedding or decorating a nursery and I'm definitely not shopping for a total wardrobe revamp, as money is tight these days (when isn't it, huh?).
But, in a funny way, Pinterest saves me money. By looking around to see ideas and inspirations for so many things, It really makes me narrow what I like and what I don't -- which I jot down and keep with me as I do shop. I don't get swayed by just what I see any more. I'm picking and choosing carefully what I spend money on, to try to channel that pin that makes me gooey inside. I see some pins for ideas for great outfits ideas, ones that can incorporate items I already have and I note what I need to pull it all together - saving me from wasting money on things that won't work with items I already own.
Right, it sounds a little funny, but those inspiration boards are inspiring me to be a savvy shopper. And don't forget the great DIY ideas for crafts and presents and home décor...a huge money saver.
What about you - are you on Pinterest? Do you have sites that have inspired you to be a savvier shopper?
