Survival Shredding



Protecting yourself during normal economic times is hard enough but when things get bad it will be even harder. One of the easiest things you can do to protect yourself is to make sure you are guarding your personal information. The theft of your personal information can be as devastating as a natural disaster. If it ever happens, it will affect your life in ways you won’t expect.

Unfortunately, crime usually increases during hard times and most criminals are opportunists and will take advantage of any information you give them. Your information can be even more valuable to them than the money in your wallet. It will give them the ability to access money you haven’t even thought about spending. It can also make your life absolutely miserable when it happens.

In a time when we are more of a set of numbers than a living human being, the loss of your personal information should be guarded at all times. This is easily done by shredding those credit card offers, old personal papers, any old medical or business files and any other types of written information you may be discarding.

Don’t let yourself be robbed without even being aware of it until it’s too late!

Do a little survival shredding!

Staying above the water line!

Suburbanites don't always have the burn option...shredding works pretty good in that situation.

Thanks Ken!

Burning is a good thing...I do that at the farm (when we don't have a burn ban) but it's not an option in the city in most cases.

Thanks.
