Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As a blogger I almost drown in paperwork on a daily basis. How since I work online? Well there are lots of press releases and product information that is sent to me, plus contracts I have to sign and fax back, ect. I use to hoard all my contracts even after saving them on the computer because I didn’t just want to throw them away when most have personal information on them. I then got a shredder and it saved my computer desk, kitchen table, bedside table… ummm yeah, paperwork was everywhere.
This holiday season I knew giving the gift of a shredder would be great for my mother-in-law. She is the office manager of a clinic and sometimes I see her bringing her work home to finish things. Now that she is currently going through breast cancer radiation she works from home 90% of the time. She has very very private patient information that absolutely cannot been seen by anyone else. She keeps all her papers safe… somewhere… I don’t even know! But I know she has been saying she needs to get a shredder because that would be easier on her.
Fellowes M-12C shredder’s slim profile design is great for her small work space and the innovative technology make it a great choice for her at-home use. It has these all destroying Cross-Cut blades that eats up 12 sheets of paper into approximately 302 particles per sheet for greater security! You can put in credit cards, paper clips, staples, and all that junk mail for added convenience. The shredder is very loud though. Like super-duper loud.
One of my favorite features is the SafeSense Technology that automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening. We’re over her house a lot so this added feature makes me feel better about my kids being around the shredder.
The Fellowes M-12C is available at Target Stores nationwide and Target.com with a suggested retail price of $99.99. Although it isn’t something someone may ask for on their Wishlist, it’s a great gift to give for the organization lover in all of us. My Mother-in-law is getting the Fellowes M-12C because it’s space-saving slim design but you can find other Fellowes products, and deals on their Facebook and Twitter page and of course, the Fellowes website.
