Having owned a shredder for over 15 years now, the "experience" of emptying is one to greet with some trepidation; expectations of confetti everywhere flood the mind (and the floor!). Since my father does most of the shredding and believes the shredder can "always take one more sheet", we recently splashed out on a new Fellowes Intellishred MS-450Ci Microshred Shredder
(highly recommended by the way, but shop around... Amazon weren't nearly as competitive as they would have you believe in this instance) for which we bought purpose-made bags for the very first time. No confetti! Admittedly they don't fill anywhere near the top and so we empty two "full" bags into one before disposal but these bags do reduce mess considerably.
