Pinterest Challenge ends with barely a whimper

Pinterest Challenge ends with barely a whimper

Ok, I think I made it halfway with this challenge, about 15 pins.  I had major trouble accessing Pinterest and my pins for days on end and it just became too frustrating to work around so I gave up.  Before I did quit some really nice things happened.  Three of the pins ended up being so, so useful.  Day one was cleaning my office.  Remember the pics?

I’ve also been using the meal planning pin for 3 weeks and I LOVE IT!  It makes things so much easier!  I’ve only been making one trip to the store a week which is amazing since it was 2-3 times before AND I’m trying new recipes!  So glad I took the time to set this up.

Also G’s chore chart has been a success.  We have been taking lots of little trips and that will continue for a bit, and it’s easier when we’re on the same schedule every week.

For these three pins alone the challenge was worth it.  There were two others that I didn’t post about but were equally great.  I found this pin which was a great idea for what to do with G’s train postcards.  So we started with this IMG_2262We’ve added more since then and it’s been fun.  We also tried this  great muffin recipe.  We’ve made these zucchini carrot muffins several times since.  We don’t put the icing on it. IMG_2251

Even though the 30 day challenge was a fail I do feel like we won with the five things I listed.

I’ll be doing something a bit different with the challenges starting tomorrow.  Come back and see!  I may even let you participate 🙂

  1. I’m so glad you did this challenge. Your office looks incredible! Gage loves his new postcard display, chores chart and muffins. You did great and I’m proud of you.

  2. nice work! I think the point is that you actually made it through some pretty useful pins! I managed to make some pretty yummy recipes from pinterest this last week. And two that weren’t so yummy.
