Save money on office supplies and reduce office expenses
Wholesale pens and other bulk office supplies can be found at internet wholesalers and office supplies stores.
With more and more businesses looking to save money, office supplies and other expenditures at office supplies stores are coming under greater scrutiny.
Can an office manager really save enough money by purchasing wholesale pens and pencils, paper, computer supplies and cleaning products to make a difference?
Yes and no. Smart shoppers can save money at an office supplies store, but there are other steps that can be taken which will also affect the bottom line. Here are a few tips to for reducing office supply expenses.
Buy in bulk: Most office managers already know that the easiest way to reduce office supply costs is to purchase frequently used items in bulk. Wholesale pens and pencils, notepads and printer paper are some of the most common items to buy in bulk. For example a box of 36 Pentel black retractable ball can be found for only $10.99.
Avoid color printing: Another way to go about reducing office expenses is to ensure employees only print in color when absolutely necessary. Of, course to do that, office managers need to be sure they have plenty of black printer ink cartridges in the office supply closet. The Hewlett-Packard No. 98 twin pack of black ink cartridges are only $41.99, which can help save money.
Office printing cutback: Supplies like portable hard drives and memory sticks can help save on printing costs by allowing employees to easily share files and information. The two-gig Lexmar flash drives are inexpensive enough that everyone in the office can have one.
Check the power: Savings can be found in areas other than office supplies. Stores and businesses can save money by turning off unused computers, printers and office equipment. A little extra effort can add to the bottom line.
Rent shopping: You may have noticed several vacant office spaces in the neighborhood. If so, this might be a good time to try to negotiate a lower rent. The landlord may be willing to cut businesses that are willing to extend their lease a little break.
