5 Reasons You Should Be Using Pinterest For Your First Apartment

Whether it’s decorating, at home fixes, DIY projects, or organization, there’s a website where you can find it all (besides this one). That’s Pinterest. You may be thinking that the social media site is mostly for wedding planning and DIY fails, but that’s just not the case. Your first apartment Pinterest board could just be your best friend. When it comes to finding tips and tricks for your first place, it’s kind of heaven.

That’s the beauty of Pinterest. It’s got everything you need all in one place, and while it may end up outsourcing you to another site (that’s its whole purpose, after all), Why should you be making a First Apartment Pinterest board? We’ve got the reasons for you.

1. It’s Easy To Use

When it comes to social media, there are tons of new sites popping up daily. However, Pinterest has seemed to stand the test of time, and one of the reasons why may just be because it’s simple. Simply make an account (which can be easily linked to your Facebook or Google account), select your interests, and get to pinning. Over time, Pinterest will learn your interests, and you’ll get customized suggestions in your feed.

2. It’s Great For DIY Projects

Sometimes, you just need to save cash, and a great way to do that is by creating DIY projects. Whether it’s a new canvas print for your apartment’s wall, re-upholstering a thrift store chair you picked up for cheap, or even making a housewarming gift for a new neighbor, Pinterest is full of great ideas that you can typically DIY for cheaper than purchasing something brand new.

3. It’s Decor Central

It’s your first apartment. No one expects you to be Chip and Joanna Gaines. That doesn’t mean the way your place looks isn’t important to you, though. That’s another benefit of Pinterest. If you’re looking for apartment decor ideas, it’s got a plethora of options. From how to decorate in tiny spaces to how to achieve specific looks, there’s inspiration everywhere.

Another accolade you can give to Pinterest? It’s money saving capabilities. The site is all about key words and searching which basically means that if you want to find cheap dinner ideas, you can simply search those words. Want to find an at-home workout that won’t require you to have a gym membership? It has that, too. Want to find a new way to budget? Yep, there’s resources for that as well. When it comes to saving cash, Pinterest is a one stop shop.

5. It’s Great For Cleaning Tips
