I don't own a shredder in my home. I tear off my acct number and soak it. I still get my bank statements in the mail. I find it is getting out of control to keep up. I know it's my fault. I just set them down till I have a stack of mail to go through. Do you have a shredder at home. I should go to ebay now and look for one.

We have a shredder, and a fireplace...LOL I keep a 'burn box' for our firepit outside also- thats where all personal information goes when we are done with it... I have never heard of soaking them in bleach- I'm sure a shredder would be easier though...

Yeah I really get tired of ripping up all that paper. My neighbor burns hers in the kitchen sink.
