I have 653 pins on my various Pinterest boards. I also have 514 followers and I personally follow 149 people. In fact, Pinterest is often used as a downtime activity for me – I’ll settle into bed at night and surf on my tablet, pinning everything from recipes, to outfit ideas, to beauty tips. After all, Pinterest is meant to be a cyber bulletin board, where you can keep all of your ideas and inspiration in one place.
Despite the many positive aspects of Pinterest, there is a downside: Often, Pinterest can entice you to spend money. I see all the cute clothes, home decor, and amazing recipes, and before I know it, I’ve blown my budget.
