This photo shows a good example using containers not only sort, organize and contain things, but also as colorful decorative accents. Using the right containers to house what you need and give you easy access is important in any home office, craft room etc. If you have open shelving, consider using the space for more than just books. Add some colorful containers and the list is limitless for what you can store on bookshelves. Just don’t forget to attach proper labels so you can easily find what you’ve so cleverly stored.
Pinterest is a social bookmarking tool. When you are searching for something online and you come across an inspirational picture, recipe or place to travel, etc. and you want to save that image, you can “pin it” to one of your Pinterest Boards. You can create as many boards as you like from books worth reading to organizing ideas. The possibilities of boards are endless.You can follow other pinners, share their content, make comments and tag users. From an organizational standpoint, it is like tearing a page out of a magazine of something you want to try and rather than keeping the entire magazine you save the page and file it but now you have ONE location to save the page. It is easy to retrieve and share via Facebook, Twitter or even refer to on your smart phone with the Pinterest App.Be warned, like other social networking sites, it can be addicting!
