10 Minute Office Tidy Tip 80: Buying Office Supplies

by shannon on July 1, 2013

When purchasing office supplies, be sure that you always have the basic supplies you use all the time on hand and be cautious to not have more than you will realistically use in a three to six month period.

If you are an entrepreneur or small business you probably don’t need to buy office supplies by the case just to get a discount. If you end up storing a case of paper for a year, think of how much space that takes up and how heavy it is to move if you need to relocate. Purchase the appropriate amount of office supplies that you will actually use within three months. If purchasing office supplies or equipment online, visit freeshipping.com to see if your purchase qualifies for a free shipping coupon.

If you have office supplies to donate, check with your local schools and shelters. They may need the extra supplies that you will not use in the next three months. The Muscular Dystrophy Association also accepts donations of office supplies and furniture, craft supplies, computer equipment, and office equipment. Visit mda.org/help/donate to learn more.
