My first Pinterest project

I just joined Pinterest last week– I know, I know, I’m REALLY late to the Pinterest party!  I kept hearing people saying things like: “I found it on Pinterest!” so I figured I should see what it’s all about.  I’m still figuring it all out, so feel free to let me know any hints or pointers to make my page/boards better: http://www.pinterest.com/soccermomblog/

Anyhow, I tried out my first Pinterest idea yesterday.  Just browsing through “home organization ideas,” (getting rid of clutter is my daily struggle…I live with borderline hoarders) I saw a pin that suggested switching unsightly dish soap bottles with olive oil dispensers.  And you know what?  I actually had a spare olive oil dispenser just laying around begging to be used (we cook mainly with coconut oil).

It had appeared in our home as an un-marked wedding gift that still bore it’s $4.99 price tag.  I laughed when I opened it and tossed it in the cabinet with other junk bottles that I hoped someday might find use.  Now here I was, running to the kitchen and gleefully grabbing it out of its dark hiding place and sighing happily when the price stickers peeled off easily.  I squirted bright blue soap into the dispenser and put it where the ugly plastic bottle used to sit.  I liked what I saw.  So much so that I grabbed a couple small Fiesta bowls from the cupboard to hold the sponges and wire scrubber.  I mean, I couldn’t have them just laying around looking a mess now.

I proudly showed my more refined looking sink to anyone who would listen (aka my husband and my mom).  I am already one of THOSE people– making their lives better (or at least keeping themselves busy) with Pinterest.  I’ve got a few more ideas up my sleeve that I hope to try in the new future– I’ll keep you posted if any of them turn out to be super cool– and I’ll pin them 😉

    Pinterest is AMAZING! I’m crazy addicted! We’ve found some new amazing dinner ideas and it’s helped me come up with some new healthy options as well. I’m a crafty person too so I’m always finding inspiration for projects! I know you’ll find a lot of great tips for home organization on there!

    Looks great! I love Pinterest, especially when projects turn out like you’re hoping!

    I use a little bucket I found at the dollar store to throw the sink plugs and sponges in. It helps keep the sink clutter free!
