Fellowes M-12C Shredder
I have been in great need for a paper shredder for a while and have been putting it off over and over because I didn’t know exactly what I needed in one and there are so many different brands and models out there. It can be overwhelming. Luckily, Fellowes recently sent Mommy and Baby Reviews one of their shredders to review. We received the M-12C Shredder and I could not wait to get the box open and start shredding! I was saving all of the bills and important papers so that we could try out the shredder.
I don’t know why I didn’t try Fellowes first for a shredder. The M-12C is perfect and fits beautifully in my office. OK OK my office is just the corner of my bedroom. Hey a girl can dream, can’t she? After taking the shredder out of the box and reading the instruction manual to make sure that I knew exactly how to use the shredder, I was ready to go. First, I shredded one sheet of paper. I wanted to see just how small the shredder shreds the paper. As you can see in the image below, shredding one piece of paper into 399 pieces of paper makes so pretty tiny pieces and impossible to read.
The next thing I wanted to shred was an expired credit card. Usually I would use scissors to destroy it but the shredder is so much easier and faster. The M-12C destroyed the card making it impossible to read the number.
I’m sure you are thinking to yourself, “Why do I need a paper shredder?” Paper shredders are great for many reasons.
The number one reason is IDENTITY THEFT! There was a time when you didn’t have to worry about throwing your mail into the garbage and letting the sanitation department dispose of it for us. However, those days are long gone and identity thieves go through everything including dirty nasty garbage hoping that someone through out something that will help them be someone else. By taking the time and shredding all your personal documents, credit card applications you receive, pre-approved loans, bills, etc you guarantee that your personal information is safe. This ensures that your information cannot be accessed by identity thieves and crooks. For this reason, paper shredders are now considered a necessity by a majority of people who want to make sure that their personal information is not misused by anyone.
What makes the Fellowes M-12C the best choice for a paper shredder?
The Fellowes M-12C Paper Shredder has cross cut blades that can destroy a single sheet of paper into 399 tiny little pieces. This makes it nearly impossible to piece the paper back together, unless you really love puzzles and a challenge. The shredder uses SafeSense technology that automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening through an advanced electronic safety sensor. This is the best safety feature that I wish all shredders had. Especially in homes with little kids with curious fingers like mine. I never leave the shredder plugged in as an extra piece of mind.
The M-12C Shredder is available for purchase at Target and retails for $99.99.
