Meg’s Resolution
Be More Organized at Home

This one kind of surprised me, because Meg is one of most organized people in the office. But I guess it makes sense: She’s a working mom of 3 who runs our Merchandising department and her home.

She’s hoping keeping everything organized at home will save her time and keep her sane while juggling everything in her life.
