Are You Really Going To Do All That? Hydronic Heat.

That’s what their TV ad says!  They are trying to sell you their product to protect you from identity theft.
If you are careful about anything with your name, address, SS number, bank numbers, pin numbers, this should not be necessary.
I tear off any pertinent numbers, my name and address off any mail, and that includes junk mail, and shred it.  Not the whole envelope, just the little tiny pieces that I have torn off.
Suppose you don’t have a shedder but you have a pet, those little pieces of paper can be put in your doggie bags, or in with the used litter. 
Suppose you don’t have a pet, keep a used can or margarine tub off to one side.  Put your used coffee grounds, tea bags, or vegetable peelings in that tub, and all those important pieces of precious information in there.  Then you can put it in the rest of the trash.
It is just to get them wet, so they will become illegible before throwing them into a dumpster where your information could be retrieved.

Now, you really CAN do all that!

Jay and I installed the new AC in the grooming room this morning. 
But I don’t know when it will get used, as the weather is starting to get colder today.

Great ideas for disposing of sensitive material if you don't have a shredder (which we don't when we're on the road).
