Moreen Torpy's insight:

Unpacking is much harder than packing. Deciding where our treasures will live in our new home is a challenge. So be gentle with yourself--it will all owrk out in time.

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix | Organizing and Downsizing a home | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Clipix is a Pinterest-like clipping and collection app which allows you to capture images and content from any web page and to organize it in custom visual boards.

One key feature that differentiates Clipix from Pinterest (though it is likely that Pinterest will add this feature soon as well) is the ability to organize together multiple sets into a "multiboard".

 

Other key features include a "Price Drop Alert" which emails you when the price of one of the commercial products you have clipped drops and 

"...For example you might have a multiboard that you call “Recipe Ideas” and inside you’d have 3 clipboards: Baking Recipes, Soup Recipes, and Health Recipes.

 

The easiest way to create a multiboard is by dragging one clipboard from the icon in the lower right-hand corner into another clipboard."

Sounds cool, if only Pinterest didn't exist already (or zillions of other similar websites for that matter). thanks for curating and sharing though.
Robin Good's comment, July 15, 2012 3:26 AM
Thank you Lelapin. The world is beautiful because it is varied. Pinterest will soon lose its "mojo" to many of these more specialized clones, which will provide more immediate value to those specifically interested in that specific area or application. I may be wrong but this is what I expect to happen.
