Protect Your Identity #FellowesProtects #Giveaway

There are a variety of ways that you can protect your identity. Today, I’m going to discuss one of them: using a paper shredder.

Years ago, I purchased my first paper shredder and I learned the hard way that an inexpensive paper shredder would cause me frustration and waste my time. I share some of the story in this short video:

What should you shred you ask? The short answer is that you should shred anything with your name or any other personal information including your address, social insurance number, bank or visa information etc.

Here is some more useful information on protecting your identity, including WHY it’s so important:

Protect Your Identity

My parents use the phrase “you get what you pay for” often. I am learning that in many cases, this is the truth. Thank you, Mom and Dad for giving me that sound advice and modelling by example. What I have learned with paper shredders is to invest in a good quality one or don’t invest in one at all! Seriously. The frustration and amount of wasted time you will experience if you choose an inexpensive, cheap quality model is not something that I would wish on anyone.

The Fellowes® Powershred® 79Ci 16-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder is definitely a top quality and money well spent, in my opinion. Because it has built-in safety features AND paper-jam free technology, this shredder is the perfect one for my home office. In full transparency, my kitchen is my office and my kitchen table is my desk, you get the picture.
