Organize your life with Clipix

Think about all of the time you might spend on the internet in a given day or week. I'm usually a fanatic of bookmarking websites, both at work and at home, but there are times when I bookmark too many things and forget to or don't have the time to go back and organize them all. Same goes with social bookmarking sites, which I have also used in the past.  For problems like this, I came across a site called clipix (www.clipix.com).
