I think buying a paper shredder that cuts crosswise is worth the investment so that you don't have an identity theft issue. Another option is if you have access to a fireplace, you or a friend have one. Burn all your paper that needs to be shredded.
Please don't put it in an envelope and seal it. Scatter it loosely throughout your trash. When you seal it in an envelope you have concentrated all the information you wanted destroyed together.

Usually shredding is done as a concern for prevention of identity theft. You're best bet would be to shredd the document into strips from top to bottom and dispose of the document in different trash recepticles making it more difficult for the items to be pieced back together.
