We receive a ton of junk mail, and with identity theft being so widespread today, we don't want to throw away anything with any personal information. I went looking for an affordable paper shredder and decided on the ShredderEssential 6 sheet paper shredder.
This is a very basic paper shredder. The shredder sits on top of a small bin. It does what it is supposed to do, shred paper. This shredder is supposed to be able to shred 6 normal sheets of paper but I have found that it has trouble doing more than 3 sheets at a time. It has a tendancy to jam if you put more than 3 sheets in it.
This shredder will shred envelopes and heavier papers, such as card stock. I usually only do one sheet at a time when shredding heavier items.
So if you need a basic paper shredder and don't need to shred a lot a one time, check out the Sredder Essentials 6 Sheet Paper Shredder.
