Shred Your Documents

It is best to shred your personal documents before throwing them away.  Recently I saw papers flying around on trash day.  Looking down I saw a mortgage application and bank statements.  This person’s entire financial history was flying around in the wind.


When purchasing a shredder it is best not to get the least expensive machine.  Low end machines jam and the motor may burn out.  A better machine will last for years.  Do not overload the machine or shred for a long time without stopping.  If the motor gets hot let it cool down.  To lubricate:  use spray lubricant and spray a piece of paper before shredding it.

Look for cross-cut shredders and try not to send stickers through as they clog the blades.
