    I got mine at BJ's recently, the brand is: Executive Choice, # 637797 paid under $40.00 bucks and works great. It's a diamond cut, so each strip is cut into 1/2 inch pieces...

    Eats CD's, about 12 sheets at a time and sounds like it can eat your hand, bones and all....

    It's a great confetti machine too

    Check out RestockIt, they have them as well....may as well get a comish on the purchase....

    I think the goat is the better choice. That Enron shredder must be worn out, especially the one in D.C.

    I shred up newspapers and junk mail with the one the bank gave me as a freebie when I opened my business account. Since it was a freebie, it's probably worth about $10 or $15, not that some places wouldn't try to charge $50 for the same darned thing...

    I need to move to a place that has a fireplace

    I put this one on my list:

    Fellowes P-55C Confetti-Cut Shredder

    http://www.officemax.com/max/solutio...OID=1611225631

    Elsewhere it's about $80 so $59 is a good deal. Just need it for light use.

    You could just go down to the local animal shelter and see if they have a golden labrador available. That would do the trick.

    sorry, I couldn't resist.

    I'd go with Leader on this one. You could put the ol' grill to good use when you're not doing burgers and dogs on it.

    FYI, Staples has crosscut shredders on sale this week. You'll probably find better prices on eBay or elsewhere, but it's worth checking.

    ditto on the Fellowes shredder... mine eats paper, staples and credit cards like a champ. Excellent value.

    I purchased an Activa shredder from Staples this summer. It cross cuts and has a mesh basket, so it looks decent.

    I've been very happy with it and its competitively priced.

    I gave up buying shredders we used to have a done of paper to discard when I worked as a merchant. Anything with personal data burnt through too many. Including some expensive $700 units.

    My recommendation... Check out a mobile shredding service. They come and drop off a big garbage can. When its full they pick it up and give you a new one. Costs anywhere from $50 - $75 per pickup.

    Not the cheapest method but its a lot easier, checkout google:

    Make sure you don't buy the cheapest shredder you can find. It probably won't last very long. Buy one that will handle your expected volume. Make sure you operate it properly (don't feed it more sheets than it is designed to handle) and take good care of it by keeping it properly oiled. Follow these tips, and you should be happy with your purchase. I recommend checking out [MY COMPANY]. They have a huge selection of [KEYWORD STUFFED LINK] to choose from as well as informative guides that will help you choose the right shredder for your needs.

    This is the one I own and use daily. Though I bought it when it was on sale for $99. Very happy with it's performance. Never has overheated on me like the other cheap one I own.

    I just don't trust those mobile shredding units, because your garbage can full of personal information is just sitting there waiting for them to come by to get it to shred. Might as well put a neon sign on it with your SSN like the LifeLock commercials.

    I have the Fellowes P-58Cs PowershredŽ Cross-Cut Shredder and I really dig it. And it was under $100.

    Don't forget to check your local Goodwill store. I bought a new in the box shredder there for $8. It was a good one too. Gave it as a Christmas gift last year.

    That's one heck of a deal. I never find deals that good at my local thrift stores!
