The Manual Shredder saves space, less of a pain
Shredding documents is something we all have to do, and it happens to be an enormous pain in the ass. This is not least because most shredders are roughly as well designed and assembled as your average AMC Gremlin. Seriously, next to printers, shredders are the devices I hate the most.
Except the Manual Shredder. This I kinda love.
First of all it’s tiny, roughly the size of a box of envelopes. Secondly, the crank that powers it folds away so it’s easy to toss into a drawer or throw onto a shelf and only take down when you need to use it. It’s also a lot cheaper than the motorized pieces of crap you get at Staples, running just $42 before shipping.
The one downside I’ve run across is that it’s single-sheet only, and it’s a bad idea to push it too far in that respect. So really, you’ll still need to use a motorized shredder at work. But if you’re just destroying those annoying credit card statements at home, this is a cheap, efficient, and above all space-saving solution.
