30 Tips to Make Life Easier & Better

I’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.  Mostly it’s all fuzzy warm feelings and gratitude for the mountains of delectable eye-candy.  But I do have a couple bones to pick too.

First, it can be a HUGE time suck.  Invariably so at times when I really just need to get stuff done! Second, I’ve realized that all the pinning over there has led to fewer round ups over here.

So today I’m attempting to remedy both of those problems with the inaugural (and possibly last ever) MPMK Pinterest awards… Basically, in an attempt to point you to only the best stuff I’ve been pinning (and hopefully avoid the time suck), I’ve picked a few of my favorite boards and am highlighting the most popular stuff from each.

Today it’s all about organizing, beautifying, nourishing, and connecting.  If you guys like this, let me know and I’ll bring it back with another set of boards in the future.
