I’m not sure if I was subconsciously sold through its recent appearance on “The Office” or if I consider it a necessity, but the MailMate is on my Christmas wishlist.
See, I get an obscene amount of junk mail, and it’s a little obsession that I have to make sure every piece ends up in many tiny pieces. Call it OCD, revenge, or identity theft protection. It’s something I must do, and I’m not stopping myself now.
Radius Product Development designed this little gadget for part of the Staples line. The end result: Instead of letting mail stack up and withstanding tons of paper cuts on a weekly basis, the MailMate is like the Ginsu knife of shredders. This handy desktop device can crunch 10 folded paper sheets, CDs/DVDs, credit cards, staples and small paper clips.
It might be time to pack up your blender until the next Margarita season; this unit is compact enough to put right on the kitchen counter.
The MailMate is available now, exclusively through Staples.
