I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

John and I reached some pretty big milestones last year.  We got married, purchased our first home, and found out that I was pregnant with our second child!

Along with all of these milestones came a mountain of paperwork.  After taking out a mortgage on the house, we got bombarded with unsolicited credit card offers and offers for homeowner’s insurance quotes, etc.  I absolutely loathe junk mail, and now that we are homeowners, we get a ton of it! 

After I found out I was pregnant, I started receiving medical bills in the mail too.  Paper medical bills are really unnecessary, as I have an online account with my hospital, where I can view and pay them any time I want.  It doesn’t stop the paper bills from coming though. 

I really hate having all of this paperwork scattered around our home.  It contains so much personal information that I don’t want others to see, and I can’t just throw it away in the trash because of that.

Luckily, we got the Fellowes M-12C shredder last year, and it has really helped us to keep the paper clutter away, and dispose of our confidential paperwork in a safe manner.

If you know someone who is getting married or buying a home this year, the Fellowes M-12C shredder is an excellent gift idea.  I always like to give practical gifts that I know people will actually get use out of, and the Fellowes M-12C shredder definitely fits the bill! 


Here are a few reasons why the Fellowes M-12C shredder is the perfect shredder for at-home use:

  1. With its slim profile design, the Fellowes M-12C shredder doesn’t take up a lot of room.  Our home is only 960 square feet, so we really can’t afford to lose all of that valuable space.
  2. The Fellowes M-12C shredder has cross-cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 302 particles per sheet for greater security.
  3. I have a very busy and curious toddler, so the SafeSense® Technology of the Fellowes M-12C shredder is very important to me.  It automatically disables the shredder when there are hands touching the paper opening. 
  4. The Fellowes M-12C shredder can shred more than just paper!  It can also shred shred credit cards, paper clips, and staples! 
  5. You can run the Fellowes M-12C shredder for a full 5 minutes before its automatic cool down starts.  I can get a lot of shredding done in 5 minutes!


Want to know where you can find this awesome gift idea?  You can purchase the M-12C at Target Stores nationwide and, for the suggested retail price of $99.99.

Give the gift of organization and security this year.  It’s sure to be one of the most useful and memorable gifts any newlywed or new homeowner will receive!
