Muji Handheld Shredder

Muji Handheld Shredder

I am probably Muji's biggest fan, and recently bought one of their handheld shredders. I use it mainly for receipts and important documents so it's perfect for my use. For £6.95, it does exactly what I need it to and takes up practically no space in my flat (unlike an electronic one!). The section at the top is actually a handle that you crank to shred the paper, and you feed the paper through the slit which has metal teeth embedded in it. The overall design is sleek, lightweight, and functional.
