Fellowes Paper Shredder Giveaway

*Giveaway Closed. Congrats to winner #17, Megan!

Having a blog is really awesome, and I'll tell you why in a sec. This year, I haven't really known what to get my husband for Christmas. It's not that I can't think of anything, its just that anything I'd really like to get him is way over our budget (new golf clubs, a 4-wheeler, a new guitar.... you get the picture). What he would love is the new Beats by Dr. Dre headphones (but those are almost $300! Maybe I'll start saving for next year)! I also think Dwight Yoakam's Bakersfield Biscuits would be a creative gift (maybe better for my dad or father-in-law). I've been keeping track of some good gift ideas for guys over on my Gift for Guys Pinterest board... maybe someday I'll start chipping away at it!

Well, the reason I'm so happy about blogging right now, is because I was recently asked to review a Fellowes 63Cb Paper Shredder, and not only is it awesome, but now I have the perfect Christmas present for Troy! I am not even kidding, he is going to love it. He has a little corner of our office, where he insisted on having not one, but two desks. He calls it his "command center." This shredder will be the perfect addition to his command center.

Of course when it arrived in the mail, I had to open it up and give it a whirl. It is awesome! I love that it is pretty quiet, and it looks sleek, so it won't be an eyesore in our office. And get this- we've been married 9 years, and have never used a shredder. We've always just taken our chances when discarding our bills, bank statements, etc. I am so happy that we now have a secure way to take care of that. 

Here's more info on this great machine:
  • Jam BlockerTM technology features an electronic sensor that measures paper and prevents overfeeding
  • Proprietary Energy Savings System functions whether the machine is in use or not
  • Cross-Cut blades cut a single sheet of paper into 399 particles, making it nearly impossible to piece back together
  • Easily shreds credit cards, paper clips and staples for added convenience
  • SafeSense® technology automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening through an advanced electronic safety sensor making it safe for kids
  • The 63Cb is available at Amazon,, and
  • Retail value of $149.99!

I received product from Fellowes, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in this program. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.


  1. I liked both FB pages.. Funny my husband insists on the same two desk system..calls it his command center as well.

  2. I like you both on Facebook. I was thinking of getting my husband a shredder for Christmas so this will be perfect.

  3. I've liked both on facebook! cg (at)

  4. I already liked you on fb and headed over to like Fellows on fb too. (as Mickey Louth) I've been wanting a shredder for all the junk mail then was going to use those pieces for mulching under my bushes!

  5. I liked both pages. My husband ruined our shredder by stuffing it with too many papers at once. I would love to get this one for him now that he has learned a few at a time.

  6. I follow you. I'd love to get a shredder, but that's something I never seem to think about when I am shopping.

  7. I'm a FB fan of both. Boy, sure could use that shredder! Ours "broke" a long, long time ago and we could sure use new one!

  8. I liked both on fb. I just found your blog. I love it!
