Saving Recipes and Health Sites All in One Place

I've discovered a new place to store all of my favorite recipe, nutrition and health sites. The site is called clipix and as the name would indicate, it is a "visual" way of saving places that you want to revisit in an organized way.

I just joined clipix recently, and have set up several files on my favorite topics. What you do is open an account in a matter of a few minutes, then go to your "clipboard". On the clipboard you will find boxes with headings of some popular categories. You can change the titles to things the you like, and add more boxes for more categories. And if things get really busy on your clipboard, you can set up "multiboards" and put similar clipboards within them to further organize things.

Since I am new, I've set up some basic boards on some of my favorite things, including animals, books I'd like to read, health and nutrition, recipes, gift ideas...the possibilities are endless. When you go to your main page, you can click on the title of any one of your clipboards and it will open up to it's own page so that you can see all files within it. As I said, I've just started, but here is a picture of the folder I started on health and nutrition:

How do you save files to a clipboard? When you join, you "drag" a little "clip" button up into your toolbar if you are using Firefox, or you save it to your toolbar as instructed if you are using Internet Explorer. Then when you are on a page that you like and want to save, you simply click on the clip button in the toolbar, a window will open, you choose a picture that will remind you of the site, label it if you like, and save it into a file that you choose from a drop-down menu.

So simple! I am "happynutritionist" on clipix, when you join, look for me, or tell us in a comment who you are so we can all find you...tell us how you are using Clipix.

You'll notice I mention my husband, his heart is still ticking, thankfully, but not in rhythm, but that is a post for another day.  Take care of your heart, and if you are a diabetic like my husband, keep your blood sugar in check...so important!
