Paper Shredder Recommendation
I just bought a Tech Solutions TS-4500 cross cut paper shredder and man, that sucker tears stuff up. Although it is limited to 6-7 sheets of paper at a time, it will handle paper with staples in it AND CARDBOARD!!! I ran cardboard boxes through that sucker until it turned itself off b/c it was overheating. The worms LOVE the shredded cardboard and it is rapidly disappearing from my bin.
Just offering this up, since cardboard is normally a pain in the neck to cut up and add to a bin.
As an additional bonus, it has an "OFF" position, which I like since I have kids and I worry that little fingers will go exploring. I kept my old shredder unplugged unless I needed it, which was a pain when I wanted to quickly shred some junk mail, etc.
