In 2008, we suggested the Kindle as the most generous uncluttered gift of the holiday season. (Back then, a Kindle was $359.)
Last year, my book Unclutter Your Life in One Week was the ultimate item on the list. (Note: The paperback version of it is being released later this month, and is currently selling for less than $10 on Amazon.)
This year, we thought a great deal about it and had many debates over our selection. Ultimately, we decided to go with the Intellishred crosscut paper shredders from Fellowes. They are truly generous and helpful for unclutterers.
There are two versions of this shredder we are recommending:
For the home, we suggest the Intellishred PS-79Ci ($191)
And, for the office, we recommend the heavy-weight champion Intellishred C-120Ci ($664)
These shredders are quiet (well, as far as shredders go), rarely jam, accept multiple media types, and come with great warranties (two and three year, respectively). Best of all, they help you get rid of paper clutter, while also keeping your private information secure.
Be sure to check out all the items in our 2010 Holiday Gift Giving Guide for more uncluttered and practical ideas.
