The Easy Way to Shred Documents

One of the best weapons in the fight to prevent identity theft is the cross-cut shredder, according to the Federal Trade Commission. In fact I have one sitting next to my desk for disposing of credit card bills and other documents with personal data.

The problem is that I have a stack of old receipts, bills and other sensitive information sitting on top of it waiting – for weeks/months -- to be shredded. Why? Because using a shredder is tedious. If I feed my six-page shredder more than four pages at a time, it slows down and makes an ominous grinding noise. So disposing of my monthly bills is a task that gets moved to the bottom of my priority list.

Enter the first set-it-and-forget-it shredder, the Swingline StackandShred ($229.99 at Amazon.com). You can stack up to 100 sheets of paper in the StackandShred’s auto-feed bin, close the lid and the shredder will automatically begin the job of turning your personal data into confetti.

It’s pricey for a shredder, but better than using a cheap one that just collects bills, takes up space -- and your precious free time.
