It feels a bit odd to recommend a generic brand shredder, but this thing has incredible value for the price! Gone are the days of ever-growing mail pile that has to be ripped up and recycled. It's so easy to just take care of all those unwanted documents that inevitably build up over time. Haven't had it jam once, and it takes care of old credit cards without issue. I recommend keeping it unplugged if you aren't using it, out of an abundance of safety.
