Shredding your papers is a great way to help keep your household organized and ready for Back to School! While not every paper you own needs to be shredded, keeping on top of the piles of papers that come through the door will be simplified if you shred up papers that are “complete” and no longer need your attention so they don’t get added to a stack and shuffled around over and over again on your counter or desk. Plus, shredding documents with personal information can help to avoid Identity Theft which affected 8.1 million adults in 2010!!
Fellowes Paper Shredders are available in a variety of models for deskside, professional, and commercial spaces and needs! Their P-12C model offers patented SafeSense Technology which uses an electronic sensor to protect the paper opening from hands! It also uses Cross-Cut technology making the shreds completely unrecognizable and keeping your confidential information safe from being pieced back together! This shredder can power through staples, credit cards, and paperclips. It has a slim profile design making it easy to store beneath your desk.
I received this shredder to review and loved how heavy duty it is. It can cut up to 12 sheets of paper at once and has a 4-gallon bin for holding shreds! Yet, it is slim enough that it is not obtrusive under a desk at all. My absolute favorite feature though is their SafeSense technology! With three little boys around the house that get into EVERYTHING and seem to find a way to break, ruin, destroy, open, reach everything I didn’t think I could own a shredder! However, this model really has safety in mind! My boys would have to plug it in, turn the power switch on, slide the lock button out of place, switch it to shredding mode, and even if they did ALL that, there is still the SafeSense so their little finger would be protected! While I still won’t let them play with the Shredder and of course teach them it is dangerous just as I do knifes and other potentially harmful things, I still appreciate all the steps given for safety. This shredder also has a very sleek and nice design and looks well in my office space. It has worked perfect thus far for shredding all my excess papers.
Fellowes’ P-12C retails for $89.99 and can be found at Target stores locally.
