Buying a Paper Shredder is Almost as Hard as Home Buying

When my husband and I cashed in a big pile of coins of Sunday, we had almost enough between us to buy a fairly decent cross-cut paper shredder. But did I? No, I did not. And my paper shredder is on the blink.

We took it all apart, and removed the gummy stuck on sheets, and tinkered around with it, but it's bit the dust. It's horrible, I think, that we have to rely on paper shredders, not only for our personal things but definitely for my business paperwork. I can't just toss any document regarding a client into the trash. That's not being responsible. So why can't I buy a paper shredder? You won't believe the reason. It's the same reason that some home buyers can't buy a home in Sacramento.

You can read more about this in my personal blog today at this link: Paper Shredders, Coinstar and Hook and Ladder in Midtown.
