    Its only going to costs you a few $ but it will help cut down so much on the chances of identity theft , everything with any sort of financial detail - shred it!

    Then use the shreds for your hamsters or rabbits bedding

    Cymru, your right about that one. I use a shredder to tear up all my credit card applications and anything related to it. I use it for any confidential information.

    You are absolutely right on this one. We must shred all our valuable or secret documents that are supposed to be trashed. I have seen many people got in trouble just because of not trashing their confidential documents properly.

    I find a shredder too much of a bother. I use scissors to cut up sensitive and financial instruments (such as check books) and dump them into at least 2 separate places.

    I don't think scissors can compete with a shredder. I use the "confetti slicer" it is the best.

    Scissors are a good instrument but i'd rather invest in a shredder that would do the work for me instead of using scissors to cut a piece of paper for 10 mins.

    It is worth it to get a shredder. I am one of those people that cannot stand to have a bunch of papers and receipts lying around. Sometimes I bundle it up and burn it.

    Looks like I should get a shredder too instead of the primitive scissors.

    I've got a shredder but its not a very good one, it only shreds one way. I shreds all my letters wether they are important or not, I then let the kids in my nursery roll around in it. :)

    Better yet, let them drool on. That will make it officailly a gonner.

    Seriously they love playing in it and I actually feel more secure about it. Rather than throw it out as my household waste and someone go through my bins (I live in a bad neighbourhood). Atleast at the nursery the rubbish is put in huge bins and collected by a private waste company. For some reason it puts my mind at ease. Seriously though you want to see a kid smile, throw some paper at them. :) LOL

    It used to be that shredders were only seen in offices but nowadays there's a definite need for one in the home too. I saw something once on a TV show where they were raking through someone's trash and said it's legal because it had been put out to be uplifted on the sidewalk. Being left out there meant it was on public property and anyone could touch it.

    That did disturb me a little but whether that's fact or not, I don't know. Anyone know if that's accurate?

    On a greener note. What do we do with all of this shredded paper?
    I know that you can use it for composting and packing boxes. Any other ideas? I assume that recycle plants would have a tough time with the mess.
