Whenever Kris has a free moment, one of her favorite things to do is curl-up on her couch, phone in hand, and save ideas to Pinterest. Kris’ Pinterest profile reflects her roles as both a teacher and mother. Among her many boards is one for recipes, one for hair ideas, one for her garden, and one for classroom inspiration.
Her profile also reflects her passion for financial planning. Pinterest is where Kris plans her big purchases, which explains why she has boards about kitchen remodels and new cars.
“When I am going to buy something big or do a big project, one of the first places I go is Pinterest,” she explained.
Kris and her family are currently in the market for a small SUV and Kris has been doing her research and saving various models to her “car shopping” board. This is the second time Kris has used Pinterest to shop for a new car.
“I love using Pinterest for ideas and to spark creativity. I also use it to plan things, including how I will shop and how I will spend my money.”
A few years back, when Kris was in the market for a compact car, she settled on a Hyundai, but wasn’t sure which model. So she created a Pinterest board featuring the models that she liked and took it to the dealer. Having all of her research in one place helped her stay focused and save time at the dealership.
Kris is hoping for the same results this time around with the SUV.
“I think I'll feel a lot more confident going car shopping with the research done in advance, and with everything that I need to know on the Pinterest board,” she said. “I think it will just help me to feel more confident and focused, and like I'm really spending my time wisely.”
