Pinterest is a virtual playground. Sure, it may not be as popular as Facebook or Instagram, but it’s getting there. There is a treasure trove of information stashed in multitudes of boards on Pinterest, with the best and the worst of the internet neatly organized for your viewing pleasure.

We picked out 7 different Pinterest accounts that are guaranteed to make your life more productive that it has ever been, by giving you the motivations and inspirations you never knew you needed.

1. Dictionary.com

Reading the dictionary to build up your vocabulary skills can be a chore. Fortunately, there’s another way out and it’s all thanks to the ease and accessibility of Pinterest. Dictionary.com, dubbed as the world’s most popular dictionary and thesaurus, has a very beneficial board called Word of the Day. Granted, it’s barely a year old (it was started on November 2013), but it’s already packed with plenty of fascinating words.

Memorising a word a day should be a piece of cake, right? If you’re nodding your head, click over to this board and impress your buddies with your mind-blowing word bank!

2. Modcloth

Modcloth’s bio reads: “Our vast array of unique fashion and décor is distinctly darling”. If you only catch a glimpse of it, you would think it’s an overstatement. But as you scroll down the page, you’ll realise that this isn’t the case at all. It turns out the Modcloth folks are pros. Jampacked with quirky, fun, and unique outfits, this is the ultimate account for fashion and décor fanatics.

Even the titles of the boards were well-thought through. If could use some perk-me-up pictures and written wonders, consider following the ever endearing Modcloth.

Ray Bradbury once said, “We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost.”

We deserve a break once in a while, so what better way than travelling? Budget Travel is proof that people can travel to brag-worthy countries without burning a hole in their pocket. Most of us already have bucket lists pregnant with exotic locations and we should put them to good use. If you don’t know where to start, you should check out this gem. 4 million travel buffs already are, so why aren’t you?

Tech News 24h has literally everything. And it looks like the website is stepping out of their comfort zone on Pinterest. A quick peek at the site would show several boards that are dedicated to DIY, gardening, and sports. Still, anything and everything that has to do with technology is what they do best. If you’d like to stay in the loop when it comes to trending technology news, this is it.

Apparently, Crisco is the most important invention since we put mayonnaise in a jar! At least, so says Minny Jackson. The most beloved character on The Help has shared many surprisingly valuable insights on the brand of shortening. Got gum in your hair? Got bags under your eyes? Crisco.

Perhaps it is best used for food, especially frying chicken. And boy, do they look good. If you’d like to kick your cooking skills up a notch, be sure to stop by Crisco Recipes. Little Tip: Avoid perusing the pictures on an empty stomach. You’ll thank me later.
