How much junk mail do you get every day? Me, I get so many credit card offers it drives me insane. Plus, with contract work from the blog, I often have information lying around the house that needs to be shredded often. That’s my husband’s chore. He’s the house shredder. Fellowes recently sent us a Fellowes P-12C Shredder to review and I get to give one away, so stay tuned for the giveaway.
The Fellowes’ P-12C Shredder looks sleek and shiny and has the ability to stand up to lots of use. The Fellowes’ P-12C Shredder stops identity thieves in their tracks by shredding confidential paper documents into nearly 400 particles with its Cross-Cut technology. It also features patented SafeSense technology, which automatically shuts off the shredder when hands come too close.
Begin with the Basics – go through all of your paperwork, if you’re like me there are probably a few piles here and a few piles there and some of those piles are just piles on top of piles that you stacked together in an attempt to clean. So you need to sort through the piles of paperwork on your desk and place them into two categories, or three if you can. Save, Shred and Recycle.
Proper Storage – Now you should be able to organize even deeper. Organize the save file into labeled folders and place confidential folders of importance into a fire-proof box. Take the shred file and shred the files in a cross cut shredder like the Fellowes’ P-12C Shredder. Cross-Cut technology is an important feature for a shredder because it provides high security, destroying confidential information into unidentifiable pieces. Equally important are enhanced safety features, such as Fellowes’ SafeSense technology, which shuts the machine down when hands come too close to the paper opening.
Get a Digital Makeover – Be sure to update your computers often, and back them up even more often. Delete files that you no longer need and remember to change your passwords every few months. It’s also smart to use different passwords for different websites. Clean out your e-mail (that’s my largest weakness, my inbox is always a disaster).
Make Life Easier – Plan ahead by purchasing organizational tools for your desk, such as computer risers or file folder holders. This will help clear clutter from your desk top while keeping things within arms reach.
Freshen Up – by cleaning your workspace you’ll feel more productive. Get rid of the dust and germs that easily build up on office equipment because we touch everything with our hands often.
Fellowes’ P-12C is available at Target stores nationwide for $89.99
