Pinterest: Virtual hoarding? Harmless fun?
Clutter & Hoarding / Pinterest is just virtual hoarding.
What do you think? Is it a hoarding obsession? Is it a way to live virtual lives which ultimately make us less happy/satisfied with out own lives (aka I have seen people who post photos of these amazing GIGANTIC dream houses/reading nooks/1000 SF kitchens etc who live on a teachers salary or military salary). The "thinspiration" theme is rampant, yet statistically we are obese as a nation.
Thoughts? I admit to enjoying pinterest and have gotten some great ideas from it ~ everything from how to hang our christmas cards this year to my actual christmas card shot with the kids. I guess I struggle with it myself ~ like, feeling like it could be a vehicle to making other Mom's feel bad (Oh, you aren't making 3000 step ridiculous super duper special cookies? Bad mom ;) ~ or that it is a vehicle to ultimately lead to less satisfaction with ones own life, or own reality, as we "pin" these bodies that we will probably never have, these homes we will almost certainly never own, etc etc.
