Advice for Saving Money on Office Supplies

Advice for Saving Money on Office Supplies

As a business owner, you want to do everything you can to improve your bottom line. In-house costs like purchasing office supplies can be a huge drain on your resources. Luckily, they don’t have to be. There are several ways to keep your office well-stocked while also saving a bit of money. 

Bulk Up

Warehouse stores are popular for a reason—almost everything is cheaper in bulk. Paper products like reams, envelopes, cardstock, post-its, and legal pads are widely available in large quantities, and many office supply companies sell in bulk at a discount. You can also buy other office supplies in bulk, like pens, tape, paper clips, printer ink cartridges, and more. 

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

In the digital age, fewer and fewer documents need to be physically printed out. When almost every worker has a laptop, phone, or tablet, simply pulling up a memo is more convenient than having to print a towering stack of hard copies. The more you take advantage of modern technology, the fewer supplies you’ll use, and the more money you’ll save on office supplies. Reducing your paper usage is also environmentally friendly. With your company using fewer paper products, you’ll be able to reduce your carbon footprint all while saving money for your business. 

Lease Large Equipment

Some of your largest office supply expenses will be for big equipment like printers, scanners, and copiers. Fortunately, you don’t have to purchase these pieces outright. Leasing programs can provide you with a low monthly rate for your office equipment and may even include maintenance plans and scheduled reups for necessary supplies to keep them running. Equipment leasing can be especially beneficial when a printer or copier needs to be replaced unexpectedly, at a time when you may not have much cash on hand to purchase a replacement.
