Social media can be a pretty polarizing place. You can get the best ideas from it and be super productive or scroll down the endless abyss for hours and lose track of where the day went. And yeah sometimes I get sucked in.
One way to avoid getting sucked in on Facebook and Instagram is to save posts for later. Even better, you can create categories for saved posts too, making specific topics even easier to find when you are ready to take action on that idea. Facebook and Instagram call categories collections.
The best part is this is super simple to set up. Since you can customize your categories the way you want, it makes things like that recipe you want to buy ingredients for much easier and quicker to find when you need them.
Here are some basic starting categories so you don’t lose those good ideas when scrolling:
Organization / KonMari
Places To Go
You can even add categories based on your current wants, interests, or side-hustles such as:
Haircut Ideas or Hair Tutorials
Wall Frame Ideas
It is amazing how such a simple thing can save you a lot of heartache and frustration when you want to remember the name of that product you saw, or you want to show your hairstylist that cute haircut you found.
It allows you to pause and come back to whatever you found later so you can get back to work or enjoy time with your family and be present in the moment.
Did you find this useful? Don’t keep it a secret. I would love it if you would share it with a friend, colleague or loved one. It is the biggest compliment you can give me.
