January is the time to shred!
Do you have a shredder at your office? How about your home? In this day and age I think it is a must have item in both home and office. It is also great to have one at each desk if you can. We shred our paper on the fly so that we do not have a huge bundle to shred at a later date.
For example, at the start of each year we go through all of our files and start shredding the ones we no longer require. It is important that we shred client files so that the information does not get into the wrong hands. We also shred credit card statements once they have been reviewed by our bookkeeper. We keep electronic versions in the event we need to review them at a later date.
Old credit card are also shredded. Why hold one to them? It is easier to shred old credit cards instead of trying to cut the credit card into tiny pieces, and then place into the recycling bin or garbage.
We also shred junk mail with our name and address on it. Better safe than sorry!
How to Choose the Best Paper Shredder
We visited the Fellowes website to determine our shredder requirements.
Selecting the best paper shredder depends on several factors, from where the shredder will be used to how much it will be used. One of the biggest mistakes shredder buyers make is purchasing a shredder that does not meet their needs, often buying a shredder that is not robust enough. For example, they may purchase a personal shredder when they may need an office shredder for bigger jobs. They may even need a heavy duty shredder if working in a large office. For greater security needs, a micro cut shredder is the best choice, and a credit card shredder may be required if there is a need to destroy more than paper. Also while buying a home paper shredder, buyers may need to consider safety features to safely shred around children and pets. Seems like a lot to think about? Just answer the following questions to make your paper shredder choices easy.
