Day off and the sun is Shining

Good morning blogging friends! I'm off work today and wanted to share a bit o' sunshine with all of you...enJOY!

I've lots on my ToDo List today, but most of all I'm going to enJOY a slow-paced time of crossing these things off my list amidst enJOYin' the sunshine.

Spring Cleaning my Office with Fellowes

The arrival of Spring with fresh air and sunshine is always a pleasure, but it also rings in the reminder of that old cliche that it's time for a bit of spring cleaning. With that thought always comes to mind -- tax time! For me, that means time for my home office, desk, and computer to get a serious clean-up, too, as I filter through the file cabinests and desktops for all items pertinent to filing my personal and online business taxes.

All winter long I've been huddled up at the desk doing indoor things and have managed to pile upon piles little notes to myself about seemingly important tasks and ideas. Now is the time to go through them all, saving that which is truly necessary, filing and/or transposing into specified journals, and send the remains through the paper shredder.

The greatest task has always been having to take several boxes of paperwork somewhere to have it shredded, and trusting that nobody's looking at what they're shredding. This year, however, I hope to use the Fellowes P-12C Cross-Cut Shredder for this task.

Before I continue to tell you all about the Fellowes P-12C shredder, I want to disclose that I am an active member of One2One Network and I am blogging about this product in the hopes of winning one of nine of the Fellowes P-12C shredders being given away to One2One member bloggers. I also will say that I don't blog about a product or service unless I am confident it is worthy of my opinion. The One2One Network is definitely held in high regard by me and not only do I trust the brands they choose to work with, I investigate the brand and product a bit myself before giving my honest opinion of the product. I am impressed with all I've read online regarding Fellowes and their office equipment. I'm certainly delighted to have the opportunity to win one of these paper shredders.

That stated, let me continue with describing the Fellowes P-12C Cross-Cut Shredder. Part of securing your identity means disposing of any printed material you wouldn't wish anyone else to see. So, you shred the paperwork you no longer need but don't wish others to have access to; however, not all paper shredders are equal. I like that the P-12C uses cross-cut shredding, which is much more difficult for someone to pick up and put all the pieces back together to get the information you didn't want them to see.

The Fellowes P-12C can shred paper, credit cards, staples, and even paper clips. Now, that's a handy dandy gadget, if you ask me.

The dimensions of the shredder are slimline -- 16"x8.75"x17" -- meaning it will tuck neatly on a shelf or under my desk for convenience. With a P-12C, maybe I can start shredding year round instead of saving all the paper shredding for Spring cleaning. By eliminating that chore I could get out and enjoy the sunshine more.

The Fellowes P-12C has SafeSense technology, which means when my hands touch the paper opening -- it stops! Safe and secure; I couldn't ask for anything more.

You can browse online at Fellowes P-12C Cross-Cut Shredder for product details and you can even do an affordable price check at Target. Get yourself one, too, and join me out of doors in the fresh air and Spring sunshine!
