Shredding isn’t just for snow boarders and guitar solos. We all understand the importance of shredding anything that might compromise our finances, identity, privacy, or reputation. But, have you thought about what to look for in a shredder? Watch this video (at http://tinyurl.com/TCDshred) and protect your good name.

Hi, I’m Lorie Marrero and today’s Clutter Video Tip is about shredding. Now, we all know we should be shredding anything that might compromise our finances, our identity, our privacy, or our reputation, so I want to share with you today a few tips about how to purchase a good quality shredder. That’s very important, otherwise you’ll be frustrated with it- burning up, or clogging, and you don’t want that. So, first thing you want to look for is a minimum of eight sheet capacity. This is why. If you have only two sheets of paper folded up inside an envelope you have two, four, six, and then eight sheets of thickness and if you ever want to be able to shred your junk mail without opening it, eight sheets is the minimum capacity you want to buy. You also want to look for safety features like a lock-out key for children and other features nowadays like credit card and CD shredding.
Most of us are pretty familiar today with the idea that we should be shredding, so it’s not so much a question of whether to shred or why to shred, but more of a question of where. They make these great smaller shredders now that fit in tiny living spaces like apartments or dorms or even if you want to put one of these by your back door where you come in with your mail like I do so that I can shred my junk mail here before it even gets into my office.
So, do you have problems managing paper? We have a team of organizing experts available seven days a week in our membership program where you have unlimited access and you can learn more at clutterdiet.com/learnmore.
So, see you next time, and may you always be happy and grateful for having more than enough.
