Staples shredders are probably the reason why I am into destroying paper junk at home. Not that I have a habit of finding joy in tearing up paper products, but I am very particular about getting rid of items in my home office that would disturb me from doing work. I am a scriptwriter and I tend to make a lot of drafts. Add a daughter that is serious about art school and junk mail, and it is not hard to imagine that without a shredder we would be knee-deep in paper stuff.
So why own a shredder, instead of just throwing paper into the garbage bin?
Shredders Staples Make Me Mind My Trash
I do not like the idea that people may be snooping in my garbage and get to know personal information that I would like to keep for myself. Paper from home may contain a lot of information about me and my family, and I do not want unwanted people knowing my social media accounts, phone number, and home address. Owning a shredder also sees to it that I do not throw away my work. By having to feed paper into a shredder, I am able to see which stuff am I destroying, and which ones I should keep.
Staples Paper Shredders Shred Well
When I say that they shred well, they can shred most stuff that I have in my office. They can destroy CDs, credit cards, and staples, which also destroy that hassle of having to be too careful in taking out the trash. If I want any document or material that contains sensitive information, into my shredder they go.
Paper Shredders Staples Are Well-Built
I happen to have to print every draft that I make because I want to proof them with a pen. On the average, I must be using about 6 inches of stacked copy paper for my drafts and final copy. I do not like my final drafts lost, so I need a shredder that would work continuously while I’m sorting work. My 12-sheet micro cut shredder from Staples commits to the hard work of disposing the stuff that I do not need, and I do take advantage of its ability to run for 6 minutes continuously. I may not be that environment-friendly, but at least I’m organized.
Paper Shredders At Staples Are Cost-Efficient
I would not own a paper shredder at home if I cannot afford them. For a shredder that could hold up to about 6 gallons of waste and can shred up to 6 feet per minute, I figured that spending $160 for an extra heavy duty shredder that can shred 12 sheets at a time to be a no-brainer. It is a good investment, and it easily takes the challenge of doing the job of keeping my desk writer-friendly.
Apart from being heavy duty enough for a person with a lot of trash, I think that my 12-sheet shredder is also a very smart machine. Well, it is that first shredder I owned that refuses to jam, no matter how much paper I feed into it.
