This isn't actually a frugal tip but I have recently entered the world of Pinterest. I learned a few things this week that I thought I'd pass on.
What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.
What is a Pin? A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be a dded from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from.
What is a Board? A board is a set of pins. A board can be created on any topic, such as Cool Posters, Recipes For Dinner, or Wishlist. You can add as many pins to a board as you want.
How do you sign up? Pinterest is currently invite-only. You can request an invite from us or you can be invited by someone who is already a part of Pinterest.
When you receive an invite, you can register via Facebook Connect or connect through Twitter.
Pinterest itself has a lot of useful tips including installing a "Pin It" button to your favorites bar so you can pin anything you see on the web.
If you have an iphone, you can take pictures of anything & pin them to your "boards".
