Top Products, Post, and Pins From 2012 As part of my transition to a new year, I decided to take some time to reflect upon the previous one, both on a personal level and about The Mindful Shopper. It is pretty hard to improve upon things if you don’t take time to look at both the triumphs and challenges from the past, right? As part of this process, I wanted to share a few Mindful Shopper posts, products, and even some Pinterest Pins that were favorites in 2012.
