- 47 percent of respondents felt their stress level diminish after the simple act of shredding.
- 85 percent of the people felt smarter.
- 83 percent felt more organized.
- 80 percent felt more in control of their lives.
- 92 percent felt safer after shredding.
- 42 percent felt calmer.
- 86 percent loved the fact that shredding allowed them to rid themselves of clutter.
- Nearly half of the participants said that shredding helped them maintain a balanced life.
Maybe we’re onto something here!Â Could the innocent-looking Royal KS7 7-sheet Cross-cut Shredder pictured above could put therapists and spa owners out of work?
“Staples’ consumer survey confirms what we have found in our research,” said Consumer Psychologist Richard Feinberg of Purdue University. “Consumers use products like a shredder for utilitarian purposes but then these products have very significant and positive emotional and psychological impacts. These psychological impacts may not even be known by the consumer, but they can unconsciously improve their life. In a world where people are time deprived, increasingly stressed, and feeling more and more out of control, shredding may provide positive psychological fuel.”
I wonder if the feelings of euphoria that come with paper shredding are similar to the joy ride my cat gets when she shreds the daylights out of her scratching post. In all seriousness, there must be something therapeutic about it.
I don’t know if it’s therapeutic or not, but I challenge you to say this post’s title 4 times fast. Just be sure no one else is around – it won’t be your finest hour.

Change, change, change.Â It’s the buzz word of the moment and the mindset of our generation.Â Granted, there are some things that are changing that aren’t necessarily for the better – but from where I sit, most of the changes are positive.
OneÂ very positive change is the move toward wasting less, using less, and being smart about how we go about our daily lives.Â You know, the change that dresses in green and demands that we all doÂ our partÂ to keep our world beautiful for all of its occupants – the ones with skin, fur, feathers, fins, or all of the above.Â But enough about my inlaws*.

I totally can’t relate to the concept of having only a few cups of coffee in the morning. And by not relate to, I mean the mere thought makes me break out in an uncomfortable rash.
However, I understand that not everyone is as addicted as I am – thanks be to the all-knowing God (what a world this would be if all of its people were as caffienated as me). In fact, I hear tell that some people actually get by on one or two cups each day – as in, not just the morning. It’s all they have all day.
For those rare birds, something like the Melitta 2-cup travel brewer would be perfect. My mom was this sort of coffee drinker. She’d have one cup in the morning and that was it. She claimed that if she had more than that she’d be awake for days. Amateur!
I always thought she kind of embarassed herself by even having a coffee maker – but she was family and I loved her, so I forgave her for her shortcomings. My dad…now there was a coffee drinker! The man could drink two pots of coffee during the day, then lay down and sleep like a beagle. With people like dad and me…the Melitta wouldn’t even stand a chance. But for the normal people in the world, it might be pretty nice.
From the website:
For the on-the-go coffee drinker, the Melitta Take 2 brews directly into one or both of its 14-oz. stainless steel travel mugs that conveniently fit standard car cup holders. Uses a #2 cone filter, the brewer features dual spouts, which detach for easy cleaning. Added features include an LED power indicator, easy-to-read window water gauge, and auto shut off.
At just a little over $30, the Melitta Take 2 would be perfect for keeping in the office. It’d also make a pretty amazing Christmas gift….. but I didn’t just ring the Christmas bell or anything. Not in August. Not me. And I’m not humming Frosty the Snowman either…..
