MUJI Handy Paper Shredder
We picked one of these manual shredders from MUJI a few weeks ago and everyone in the office is loving it. There is something oddly satisfying from using this to shred mail. Its cathartic - almost therapeutic. One of our interns said her stress levels have gone down and that it was her 'meditation.' Crazy right? Now don't get us wrong - if you have a ton of mail to shred, it will take forever to shred. And thicker card stock won't work. But for that rainy sunday afternoon when you need to shred up a few envelopes or bills, this inexpensive shredder is a delight to pull out. Makes a great gift too.
