shredder



down from 50 quid to 20 quid. 80 quid elsewhere.
Really handy- have bought one for me and one for my mother- will shred everything with my address on from now on- this identity theft has worried me.

Ok for household use

May be this is why the govt is bringing in id cards - as everyone destroys all proof of who they are

You can buy a little manual one in Poundland which obviously costs £1.

What we don't shred we burn on our log fire. DH is very careful about identity theft.

I've also reserved one to collect although seem to have managed to reserve it at two different shops!

We have that one - it's very good. Be aware thogh not to leave it turned on with a three year old and your new credit cards lying around .

bagpuss- ROFL.

Hmm, PF, silly dh, could have been a very nasty accident. We had spent the entire evening before rowing about who had lost the cards too. DH always turns off shredder at the wall now.

Got one in Ryman yesterday. Plan to keep mine unplugged unless in use. Awfully dangerous to have around little curious fingers.

misdee Thu 10-Feb-05 22:06:57
