HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR HOME USING PINTEREST AS A GUIDE

How many of you get that overwhelmed feeling when you start to organize?  If you just raised your hand, then I hope this post helps you. 

And who loves those pretty organized areas but hasn't a clue where to begin?  If you raised your hand again, then you are definitely in the right place. 

Here is a step by step on where to start your research on Pinterest and what to pin.

How to organize your home using Pinterest to organize linens

SELECT ROOM OR SPACE TO ORGANIZE

First, decide what room or closet you want to organize.  Picking one place to begin helps make your task a lot more manageable. 

I want to organize my linen closet and boy does it need it.  So we will use my linen closet as an example throughout this post. 

Now your first step is to search the words “Linen closet organize” on Pinterest.

CREATE A HOME ORGANIZING BOARD

Next, create a board on Pinterest for your space.  Mine is called “Organize Linen Closet.”

SEARCH PINTEREST FOR ORGANIZING PHOTOS

The next step is to narrow down what you are looking for.  There are a gazillion pins out there so selecting the right words is key to finding what you want.  I would recommend typing in the space you are thinking plus the word organize.  In my case, I used “linen closet organize.”

Check out this screenshot of one idea that came up from A Bowl Full of Lemons.  So many wonderful ideas!  But don't get overwhelmed because here is what to do next.

PIN HOME ORGANIZING PHOTOS

Using Pinterest to organize can seem overwhelming unless you take some advice from Mary Poppins who once said: “In every job that must be done there is an element of fun.”  That is true especially when you start pinning because I am giving you permission to pin everything you like to one board. 

But make sure to type in the description what it is you liked about the photo.  Writing the description is very important because believe me you will forget what you wanted.

CREATE COMMON ITEMS LIST

Now go back to all your photos and make a list.  Look for common items, style, and colors.  That will let you know where you are gravitating. 

Also, look for those unique new ideas that you think are very creative.  I love details when it comes to organizing!  I particularly like this pin that included some crocks.  What a cute and original idea and I happen to have some crocks! 

Now create a list of items you will need for shopping.

MEASURE SPACE TO ORGANIZE & CREATE SHOPPING LIST

Okay, now you have loads of ideas let's put this into play.  Start by measuring your space, closet or whatever you're organizing.  In my case, my closet is 24″ wide, but my door frame is less than 20″.  If I want one basket the full width I need to do 20″ or less or else I will have to do some creative work trying to get it out. 

Also based on my selections I learned that I want it to look very neat and tidy so I plan to use lots of baskets and mostly neutrals.  So, baskets are on my list along with some other creative ideas. 

Now create a shopping list.  Here is mine.

  • 24″ wide basket for old quilts and blankets
  • Two fabric baskets
  • One small crock of soap
  • One wire basket
  • Laundry basket for floor
  • light for closet

SHOPPING

For some people, this is the fun part, but I know shopping is not fun for everyone.  Because not everyone is a fan of shopping, I have decided to share what I used from Amazon to make your life easier.  This linen closet project just keeps getting easier.

CONCLUSION

To wrap everything up here is a bullet list using Pinterest to organize.

  • Select space to organize
  • Create a board on Pinterest using the name of the area and the word “organize.”
  • Search Pinterest with word of space and organize
  • Pin loads of ideas and include a description of what you like in photo
  • Create a list of what you like from Pinterest photos
  • Measure space
  • Create shopping list

Once you have taken everything out and you have purged items to go to goodwill, then it is time to place everything back.  Neatly pack everything into the baskets, crates or whatever fantastic idea you found on Pinterest, and set them in their place.  Now you have an organized space that is filled with all the things you love thanks to the help of Pinterest.
