You might think of Pinterest as just another social media time spender, but have you ever considered searching for financial counseling while cruising for a new board to follow? While Pinterest is filled with useful fun information like recipes and craft ideas, our presence on the platform is to shed some light on tips about credit counseling, like saving to buy a home, for example.
Did you know that we have over 23 boards, with topics ranging from Teaching Kids About Money to Saving For Retirement? That’s over 1,500 Pins chocked full of financial advice to help guide you in making smart money choices. While we do share a lot of our own resources, we have also found a ton of other valuable content available that we’ve pinned, adding to our library of debt advice. One area we have found to be particularly popular lately is resources to help first time home buyers.
