Sometimes even your digital world needs some organizing. When I joined Pinterest I just started pinning away and did not give much thought to how to make sense of it all. I had pins haphazardly thrown in to random boards. I thought it was about time to give my boards a little cleaning up.
Organizing your Pinterest boards will take some time, but trust me you will feel so much better! So many of us use Pinterest on a daily (maybe even hourly) basis. Why not keep it clean and efficient? It will give you more time for finding great inspiration! Here are five fairly simple ways to give your Pinterest boards a fresh makeover.
Move pins that are in the wrong board. I'm sure we've all done it without even realizing it. You pin a new recipe you want to try but you forget to change your board selection so it ends up on your fashion board without you realizing it. Go through your boards and clean up those pins that ended up on a wrong board.
Delete multiple pins. You must really like something if you pin it twice!
Get rid of boards you no longer need. Think of it like getting rid of that outfit that you haven't worn in a year. Sure you might use it one day, but you probably won't.
Rename your boards. This was key for me when organizing my Pinterest boards. I wanted a system that was easier for me to use and to find where I should pin something. All you need to do is fine a system that works for you. Some find alphabetizing their boards helps them find the board they are looking for when they pin.
Change your board cover photos. This is so easy and quick to do. I like to do it every once in a while to give my Pinterest account a nice fresh look.

This next idea just makes me so happy! Rolling carts for the floor of your pantry! I don't know about your pantry, but I have to empty out the floor of our pantry every once in a while to sweep up the dust and little bits of things that fall. This would make that job so much easier!
A must have - pretty labels!
Lastly some quick and easy clever ideas! Use self-sticking tiles on your wire shelves to keep small items from falling through. Or use tension rods to store trays, cutting boards, etc.

We have two tiny linen closets in our hallway so I tackled them quickly along with the office closet. I ran to Target and picked up a few stacking containers, cleaned up the closets, and added labels to the containers. Yay! Makes me smile!
Here is your first FREEBIE for 2013! Organization labels for your office and linen closet! I printed my labels on full sheet label paper and stuck them to my containers. If you don't have label paper you could print on regular paper and tape them to your containers. Happy Organizing!
