Are you one of those people who sticks your insurance finalization forms in the trash? The kind who tosses bank receipts, deposit slips, paid utility and credit card bills in the bin? Do you make jokes about filing important documents away in “drawer #13”, but you really mean the overflowing bucket under your desk? If so, then you are also the type of person who is simply begging for their identity to be stolen.
The solution is to shred those documents as they leave your hand, before they make their way into the garbage. Don’t even let them start to accumulate.
Purchasing a shredder can be a bit of a challenge, however. There are so many kinds out there, and some are absolute junk — they can’t handle more than a couple of sheets of paper at a time. If you dare load more than their capacity, they’ll start rearing … and jumping! Some are totally dangerous to pets and small children, but that is a post for another day. =/
The $249 Stack-and-Shred can handle up to 100 sheets of paper at a time, and it can take on your credit cards, too! It’s supposed to be pretty quiet, so you won’t have to worry about alerting the auditor when you’re in the back room disposing of the evidence. [Pretend I didn’t say that.]
Anyway, I’ve got a bagful of “stuff” that I am afraid to throw away but I don’t want to burn, so I am looking forward to receiving the review unit. I am sure that I can manage to put it through several grueling tests as I create packing material and confetti from its cross-cutting teeth. It’s a party!
