How Pinterest taught me to be organised.

Greg wasn’t so impressed when I first joined Pinterest, probably because I spent hours fixated by my laptop instead of spending those hours talking to him. But since I’ve gotten a day job I’ve learned to curb my pinning, and don’t pin quite as many cupcake designs/recipes as I used to.

I’d kinda gotten sick of the one shelf of our pantry cupboard. It was the one where “everything” went ie it wasn’t pasta/grains, or crackers/tuna, or tins… but random things that couldn’t quite get grouped together. Enter my saviour: Pinterest. Where I found a way to clear this clutter, as well as some other very smart organisation tips.
