After using Pinterest for a couple of weeks, step back and look at your collections. Do you notice any trends in what you're pinning that you could implement in your life? If you're pinning great cocktail recipes, buckle down and make them – at your next party. Pay attention to the clothes you're finding and either buy something directly from the pin (many of which are linked directly to a retail site via product pins), or be on the lookout for similar styles in the stores. Similarly, Pinterest is increasingly a place to find deals. How does four nights surfing in Tahiti for $2,000 including airfare sound? And with Pinterest's price notifications, you'll be informed if a product from a seller you've pinned is suddenly available for less.
