Fellowes® Powershred® M-12C Cross-cut Shredder

**I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation**

Between all the junk mail I get, the stuff my kids bring home from school and the different press releases I get with blogging, I am DROWNING in paper. Paper that needs to be organized and/or disposed of properly. I used to be the person that would just throw away the junk mail until I heard about people’s identity being stolen from not properly disposing the mail. Couple with the fact that it is the holiday season and if you write a check anywhere, they usually hand it back to you because their machines basically treat that check like a debit card…having all that paper floating around your office (or just throwing it away) can put you at risk of having your identity stolen. That’s where the Fellowes® Powershred® M-12C Cross-Cut Shredder comes in handy!


When my husband and I started sharing a home office, one of the things we needed was a good shredder. We both had documents that needed shredding, aside from the junk mail, but we didn’t have a shredder to do the job (the one we had, which will remain nameless, was forever overheating and jamming). So when I was approached to review the Fellowes® Powershred® M-12C Cross-Cut Shredder, I jumped at the opportunity. My husband was pretty happy too!



  • Slim design allows it to fit almost anywhere…next to a desk, under a desk…anywhere!
  • The cross-cut blades will shred approximately 12 pages into 302 particles per sheet.
  • SafeSense® Technology…if your hands touch the opening where the paper goes, the shredder will stop.
  • Besides paper, you can shred paperclips, staples, credit cards and junk mail!
  • You can shred for 5 solid minutes before the shredder will need to take a break to cool down!

Hands down, my favorite feature is that I don’t have to worry about paperclips or staples. I’d love to say I would remember to take those things off first before shredding, but let’s face it…I won’t. So having the ability to shred them…totally awesome! A close second favorite feature is the SafeSense® Technology. My kids are older, so I don’t have to worry about them sticking their fingers in the shredder, but I am glad that for families with little ones that still do that kind of thing, there is a safety feature in place.

The Fellowes® Powershred® M-12C can be purchased at Target stores nationwide and on Target.com. The suggested retail price is $99. Such a good price! We still have about 10 days until Christmas…pick up this shredder for someone on your holiday gift giving list!! Give them the gift of protecting their identity!
