my first one
I have become the proud owner of my first shredder !
Oh JOY..and i've been shredding..
first..now when junk mail comes in..immediately it goes into the shredder..if it is more than 10 pages..i tear it into smaller sections and shred it..shred it shred it !!
i have emptied my shredder into my compost pile once already..and will do it weekly..
do i worry about the inks..NOPE..I'm not going to even worry about those little celephone windows..they will just add texture to the compost..maybe not food..but bulk..
That will make the soil drain just fine thank you.
It has cut our trash going out probably in half..i've even taken to shredding cereal boxes..and packaging..(no not the plastic ones)
I bought it for 2 reasons..one was cause of our identity getting stolen..2 because of excess paper around here..
Also have begun scanning papers onto discs..that have to be saved for taxes or whatever..will stick them and our tax papers into much smaller containers than the heavy boxes i have now..and shred all that paper stuff and get rid of it..that will be my rainy day work (well snow today still here in Mich) until i get it done.
i have a bunch of blank cd's to put my paperwork onto..i read about doing that this past week in an organizing book i had..scan the important papers ..put on cd..shred...oh the joy of being paper free..when you save everything for 7 years..having it in an envelope rather than a huge huge box..has got to be a GOOD THING MARTHA
