Fellowes P-12C Paper Shredder Review

Fellowes P-12C Shredder

The April showers that bring May flowers also bring spring cleaning. Ugh! Taxes, double ugh!

It’s time to apply the five year rule again. OK, seven. If if hasn’t been used in all that time, it is time to trash it. Bank statements, canceled checks, insurance forms, medical records, personal correspondence specifically. These are no one’s business but mine. Too much danger of identity theft. Time to shred.

A competitive beast lies within me. The teenage girl of a half century ago who revved her engines to race became the little old lady who challenged fellow scooter riders time and time again. Problem is no one ever took my competitions seriously until hubby was doing our annual tax forms.

“Honey, how about seeing whose shredder is better? Measurement amount done in the same time.”

Well, hubby sucked the bait right in. He was banking on my technological lacks. I have a hard time using all controls. ?No one is allowed to change anything under pain of frazzling mom….

I was banking on his old, well-used paper shredder failing to keep up with my Fellowes P-12C. I kept the match fair – paper only, no credit cards, cds, dvds, newspapers or file folders – just because my new Fellowes p-12C shredder can handle all of those doesn’t mean his old shredder could. The Fellowes P-12C has cross-cut technology that shreds one piece of paper into 399 bits more of less and can do up to twelve pieces per pass simultaneously.

Along the line, hubby’s was wiped out. It got hot and died. (Yeah! So I am not the best sport….) He justified losing with “My shredder was cheap.” I just laughed and told him that a Fellowes P-12C retails for about $89.99 online and in discount department stores like Target.

The Fellowes P-12C is an essential piece of office equipment. ?It is extremely easy to set up. ?It’s sleekly designed, well-built, compact, sturdy, and practical. Its Security Level 3 four gallon bin holds bags and bags of once sensitive, confidential paper now just ticker tape like confetti. Its patented Safe Sense technology stops the machine if fingers get too close to the opening.

I planned on taking pictures of the bags of shredded paper BUT for once in his life hubby took the garbage out without being asked or reminded. Guess he didn’t want the evidence around.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central. I received a sample of the product and a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate. As always my opinion is my own and has not been influenced by any sponsor.
