Like pretty much all other men, I’ve always found the popularity of Pinterest perplexing. However, I finally get it. I think.
My wife and I are using it to collect, organize, and collaborate on ideas for our new house. We have boards for yard, architecture, furnishings, and kids. We’re also using catalogs and books for ideas. One might think that’s a stumbling block for Pinterest, but you can always Google up a similar picture to an item you are interested in from a book. Catalogs are even better because every retailer worth spending money at has an online presence that is even better than their catalogs. You can pin those pages and have everything in one simple place.
