Gift a paper shredder for Christmas? You bet! Why? Because it tells my son and his wife that we care about their security. Using a Fellowes Powershred M-12C Paper Shredder can help them prevent identity theft because it keeps sensitive information out of the hands of criminals.

Think you don’t have anything worth shredding? Think again. Those credit cards offers you get in the mail have a wealth of information in them for scammers. So do those medical bills, utility bills, and more. And don’t even get me started on bank and credit card statements, especially the older ones that have full account numbers listed. Really, it’s not safe to throw anything into your garbage can that you wouldn’t post on a billboard for all to see. If it doesn’t pass this litmus test, it needs to be shredded.

Choosing a shredder is actually easy. Skip any model that has a strip cutter instead of cross-cutter. Strip cutters don’t destroy the paper well enough not to be put back together by nefarious thieves. You’ve got to do what you can to make it harder for them and so they’ll move on to someone else’s dumpster so you must invest in a cross-cut machine.

Fellowes Powershred M-12C

The Fellowes M-12C has cross-cut blades that can shred up to 12 sheets of paper at a time in addition to credit cards, staples and paperclips.  This one little feature will alleviate the wasted time going through your shred pile looking for paperclips and staples before shredding or dealing with damaged blades when you miss one. I can’t tell you how many low-end shredders were ruined by a paperclip.

I also love the Fellowes M-12C because of its fabulous safety feature. It uses SafeSense® Technology to disable the shredder in the event you mistakenly touch the paper opening. Perfect for anyone with children or even clumsy people like myself.

A shredder gives peace of mind and helps end the paper clutter at home. Shred it or file it – no more piles of paper waiting for a place to call home.

The Fellowes M-12C is available at Target Stores nationwide and Target.com  – SRP $99.99.
