I have this huge fear of losing all those genius and gorgeous Pins on Pinterest.
Ya know, everyone elses million dollar ideas.
So I have discovered a way to save them.
Of course I first saw this genius idea on Pinterest but am putting a spin on it for PC lovers.
Sorry MAC you are outta this one.
Well, not really you can pretty much follow the same steps I would imagine.
And as always, it is a pure Pinterest genius idea.
It really is so easy.
And now I don't have to toss and turn each night worry about my precious pins
and what if I accidentally delete a board or if Pinterest is down for whatever reason
and I need a Pin ASAP.
Here are the easy peasy steps to saving your pins FOREVER.
- Go into each one of your boards one at a time.
-Press Control P (which will bring up the Printing box)
-Instead of using the Printing option look for "Print to PDF" or "ADOBE PDF",
then select "All Pages", then "Print".
-Save them where you would like and choose a name, it would probably make the most sense to name them the board names you have on Pinterest so you can find them easily on your computer.
-Repeat with all your Pinterest boards.
-TIP: Make sure all your Pins are done "Fetching" or your PDF will not be complete with all of your Pins.
-TIP: Make sure you keep remembering to save each board, maybe make yourself a note to do it weekly, biweekly, monthly, etc. You can over-write your current boards by just saving over them.
-Also, the PDF will not capture the entire hyperlink, just the website below each pin.
But if push comes to shove, and you can't access Pinterest then you can search the website by researching to your PDF.
Here is an example of what my
"Fashion Is My Passion"
boards look like in PDF.
