Spring Cleaning with Fellowes

Although many Northerners are still staring at mountains of snow, it isn't too early to start thinking about Spring cleaning. Many of us do it each year. It is a good way to shake off the winter and embrace the new season. It is a way to get rid of the old, unwanted and unneeded things and declutter our homes and our lives.

Part of the process of getting rid of unwanted things is, of course, clearing out old documents. While doing that, two piles should be created. One should be devoted to items you wish to save, while the other should be the "shred" pile.

One of the perks of being involved with One2One Network is being invited to participate in various projects. The most recent one is taking a look at the Fellowes P-12C Cross-Cut Shredder.

Shredding documents can be an important step in guarding against identity theft. Having a shredder helps to destroy confidential information into unidentifiable pieces.

I have been considering investing in a shredder, so I was especially interested in taking a look at the Fellowes P-12C Cross-Cut Shredder.

While I haven't purchased the shredder yet, there is a high likelihood that I will. I like the 12-sheet capacity, the fact that the basket holds four gallons (enough for our needs here), and that it has a slim profile that should fit easily under the desk. I also like the fact that it can shred paper, staples, credit cards, and paper clips. In terms of safety, it has patented SafeSense technology that stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening.

The shredder is moderately priced. At $84.99 (Target's price), it isn't exactly a steal; it isn't the most expensive shredder out there though, either.

Overall, the shredder looks good. It looks like it would make a great addition to a home office, and it would be a good tool in safeguarding confidential information.

While this blog post was written as part of a project for One2One and Fellowes, all opinions expressed within it are my own.
