  • Share your favorite recipes, chefs to follow, or special ingredients that you can’t cook without

  • Include your process for making meal prep easier, and if it’s relevant, include links to your website with checklists, recipes, and planners

  • A shout-out to your local grocery store or a call to shop local will also go a long way!


Post About Working from Home:

Most entrepreneurs dream of the flexibility of working from home, but now that everyone in the family is home and trying to do the same, this might be turning into a little bit of a nightmare! 

Help your followers find their at-home work rhythm by sharing what helps keep you sane, focused, and productive.


  • Share your top productivity tips & tricks — maybe it’s putting on headphones and blasting your fav playlist, or setting “office hours” where no one can disturb you. We’re sure your followers are ready for anything to try to make working from home that much easier!

Post about home organizing this May!


Post About Home Organizing:

Making our home environment feel calm and comfortable is on everyone’s minds right now. So share your tips on organization, de-cluttering, re-decorating.


  • Topics like pantry organization are really popular right now since everyone is spending more time in the kitchen — share before/afters of your pantry and what tools you used to reorganize that space

  • How to keep kids toys under control (and put away at the end of the day!)

  • How to organize your closet or home office


Post About Gardening & Plants:

Pinterest searches for “gardening for beginners” have increased, meaning search terms related to vegetables, nature, gardening, plants, flowers, and eco-conscious living will be super relevant for the next several months. 

This is especially applicable for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, since Spring is in full swing.


  • Share gardening tips, plant mom wins, or post a list of your favorite flowers that bring you joy

  • If your niche is in the eco-friendly industry, this is a great time for you to guide your followers with simple lifestyle changes that they can make right now

  • Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can mix in pretty florals to break up content in your feed and add visual interest!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we believe it’s a topic that should be discussed openly, safely, and without judgement.

  • Share the ways you take care of your mental health, whether it’s writing in a journal, doing yoga, meditating, exercising, dedicating a day to pampering yourself, or watching your favorite feel-good movies
