With a little creativity, you can save money on supplies all around the office. For example, take printer paper that has been used on one side, and cut it in to quarters. Then make a small stack and staple in one corner. Voila – instant notepad. Use empty package boxes for storage, and reuse paperclips, folders, rubber bands, and even junk-mail envelopes (just put a label over the address, and use them for internal mailings). Print on both sides of paper, or use one side for internal office communication or faxes.
Have a “no printed email” rule and save a lot of paper and toner. Edit on screen as much as possible instead of printing each draft, then just print one draft for final edits. Reuse packaging materials, or shred used paper to create your own (just nothing confidential since some information is still visible on the shreds).
