Does Pinterest Really Save You Time?

Start your stopwatch now.

1.  Search house.

2.  Find empty plastic wipes containers.

3.  Clean out one of these containers.

4.  Think about how to repurpose container.

5.  Consider outrageous possibilities: hot tub for princess dolls, paper airplane hanger, etc.  The list is endless.

6.  Decide on a more conventional option: crayon storage or bedroom clutter organizer.

7.  Find Mod Podge and tissue paper.

8.  Dump crayons out of a Crayola box and sort by color.

9.  Have a brilliant idea!

10.  Collect a dozen empty toilet paper rolls from around the house.

11. Cut them in half.

12.  Hot glue them into plastic wipe container.

13.  Put crayons by color into half toilet paper rolls.  Then you have the red roll.  The blue roll.  Etc.

14.  Smile at own creativity and ingenuity.

15.  Apply Mod Podge and tissue paper to outside of The Ultimate Crayon Sorter.

16.  Let it dry.

17.  Take copious pictures of project, especially really close-up and artsy ones.

18.  For example, set the bottle of Mod Podge next to a small heap of tissue paper strips.  Have your paint brush drip a small puddle of Mod Podge onto your dining room tabletop.  Then, snap a shot. Plan to call this one: Exterior Decor Materials.  It looks something like this but a bit more stylized:

19.  Sign-in to your blog.

20.  Title a new post: DIY Ultimate Crayon Sorter.  Get your inspiration from here…

21.  Upload lots of pictures.

22.  Add captions.

23.  Narrate the project-developing process.

24.  Publish post.

25.  Click on the  Pin It button installed on your web browser.

26.  Select your best picture of the crayon sorter to pin to your DIY/Crafts Board.

27.  Compose a comment to go along with the image.  Something like “Best way to organize crayons.  Super easy and fun project using a plastic wipe container.”

28.  Tweet Pin.

29.  Post pin to your Facebook timeline.

30.  Repin your pin to your board called Pins I’ve Made/Used/Bought.

31.  Scroll through new pins on Pinterest.

32.  See an idea for a Car Activity Kit that is stored in a plastic wipes container.

33.  Wonder where you put the rest of your plastic wipes containers.

34.  Wish for a pin to help you organize and find plastic wipes containers.

35.  Wander house for a box you can wrap in gift wrap or fabric and use to store repurposeable empty home supply containers.

Stop.
