Does this picture look like you, sitting there for hours shredding old files. There is an easier way! For those of you who live in the metro Boston area, there is a local company called Shred-It that will shred paper and old credit cards right before your eyes. On the second Saturday of every month from 10 – 1pm you can drive to their shredding truck and for $15 a box/bag your paperwork will be shredded. This saves you from buying your own shredder which will usually jam and also saves you hours stuffing papers through the little shredding teeth.
Shred-It is located at 6 Gill St. Woburn Ma. (Find other locations: www.shredit.com)
Staples and many UPS stores will also shred files for you, although not while you wait.
So don’t hesitate to clean out your files because you dread the shredding process -throw all the papers into a box and haul them away.
