If tax season — or simply day-to-day life — has left you with reams of documents that need shredding, head over to the nearest Office Depot or Office Max location.

Grab this coupon from the retailers’ website, and you can shred up to 5 pounds of paper for free. However, don’t procrastinate — the offer ends April 28.

Just remember not to shred any tax documents until you have stored them digitally. For more tips, check out “Ask Stacy: How Long Do I Keep My Tax Returns?
