How safe are your torn-up credit card applications?

Paper ShreddersOver the past week or two, you have probably received at least one or two credit card applications. If you’re like most people, you probably throw them in the garbage. If you’re concerned about the application being stolen, you may tear the envelope in half or quarters.

This may put your mind at rest, but some ambitious criminals don’t mind using a little Scotch tape to patch things up. Taped credit card applications are often accepted regardless. Although tearing a credit card application up isn’t a bad idea, weeding out most ID thieves, it is not fraud proof. This is certainly better than doing nothing.

Although dumpster diving is legal in most states, what they do with that information can make it illegal. The best failsafe to prevent dumpster divers is by using a good cross cut shredder. I keep a shredder in my own home office and shred anything that has personal information or applications.

Shredders are great at home or in the office. I recommend having one in both places. The price of a shredder is nothing in comparison to damaged credit or identity theft. You can see our entire line of paper shredders by going here.

Office FurnitureHave you ever wanted to try and create your own home office, but may have limited space or money? Perhaps you are tired of using that old card table as a desk. We have a wide selection office furniture and accessories.

To begin with, I would recommend getting rid of that card table or old desk and try using a workstation. We have some nice looking Leda workstations that can be used at home, or even in the office. They use a modern design and are great for getting maximum use with limited space.

I would also recommend a filing cabinet for keeping track of paperwork. We have a variety of cabinets from Leda designed to take up little space while keeping things organized. They are set on casters and are easy to move around. This makes re-arranging the office easy.

The final piece of furniture needed to complete your office is a nice chair. You may be working (or gaming) in your office for hours and may need a nice place to sit. Our office chairs are ergonomic and designed to help support your body while providing maximum comfort. We have a wide variety of office chairs to choose from.

We have a wide variety of office furniture, including custom wood furnishings. Feel free to stop by and take a look.
