Perfect Pads For Working From Home

More people are working from home than ever before. About 3.2 million Americans, according to the Census Bureau’s annual American Community Survey.

And with winter storms sweeping the country this week, some people are being “forced” (we just call them lucky) to work from home for snow days. In honor of all those who have the wherewithal to do work (instead of laundry) at home, here are some pads we love that offer the perfect live/work balance.
