Suffering through idea clutter on Pinterest? The social network released a solution last week.

Senior vice president of product Lawrence Ripsher announced in a blog post that Pinterest launched board sections, a new way for users to organize their Pins.

Ripsher said Pinterest has been testing board sections with “a small group of passionate Pinners,” adding that the feature is in the process of rolling out to all iOS, Android and web users.

Users with access to the feature can open one of their boards and tap “add section,” and then choose which Pins to add to the new section.

Ripsher also described another way Pinterest users can clean up their boards: “Do you have separate boards for each room in your house, or for each project you want to try? Now you can move all the Pins from your similar boards into one board with sections. Just head to your board, tap ‘Organize’ and pick the Pins you want to move.”

Finally, he shared the following ways that the new feature can be used for the upcoming holiday season:

  • Secret shopping: Start a secret board with sections for each person who’s getting a gift this season.
  • Friendly feasting: Organize your Friendsgiving board by main courses, sides, pies and wines.
  • Lots of layers: Move your winter styles to a new board with sections for warm sweaters, tall boots, wool coats and more.
  • Deck the halls: Light up your home with decoration ideas organized by each room in the house. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
