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.
Spring cleaning time is coming up upon us, it may not seem like it in your backyard but lately here in Central Florida its been back into the high 70’s-80 degrees and is screaming “CLEAN YOUR HOUSE”. Not only Spring cleaning but it’s the season of weddings and new home ownership! I can definitely relate with moving since we are moving this week. When a loved one gets married or buys a home you need to start thinking of a great gift to give them and sometimes that is really hard. How many blenders or toasters does one couple need anyway?
One item we love having in our home and I feel is great for gifting, is a paper shredder. Why give a paper shredder instead of a restaurant gift card or even more bath towels or maybe your favorite casserole? Because it gives the gift of personal safety and makes identity theft just a little harder. Definitely one less thing a new married couple or new home owners need to worry about.
Most banks and utility companies now allow you to receive e-statements which can be great deterrent for mail theft but did you know that even with your medical bills or new furniture receipts a person can steal your identity? Most of those documents have your personal information on it and in a matter of time a thief can piece together a few pieces of mail and they’ll have everything they need. Like I said, it’s Spring cleaning time and it’s nice to purge documents you don’t necessarily need (talk to your accountant before destroying any paperwork). Of course, you can’t just toss those sensitive documents in the trash so what are your options? On one hand you can keep everything you receive but then you’re left with boxes and boxes of paperwork. The better option is to get a great quality paper shredder that not only shreds paperwork but credit cards.
Fellowes M-12C Cross-Cut Shredder
Why I love the Fellowes M-12C shredder is not hard to explain. My favorite feature is by far the SafeSense® Technology! If any fingers come just inches from the opening and the blades instantly stop so besides keeping little fingers safe it’s great for those not so careful adults (like myself). It’s the perfect shredder for a new homeowner because the Cross-Cut blades will destroy up to 12 sheets of paper into approximately 302
particles per sheet for greater security! Not sure any thief will want to sit through my mess just to maybe be able to put together 1 sentence, that’s for sure.
Will the Fellowes M-12C save you time? Yes! You don’t have to remove staples and paper clips before shredding. How cool is that? So say no to clutter and being buried in paperwork, old credit cards and that junk mail.
The Fellowes M-12C is available at Target Stores nationwide and Target.com with a suggested retail price of $99.99 makes it a great gift perfect for any budget.
