Top Ways to Buy Office Stationery on a Budget

With all the necessary parts of your business you’ll want to ensure that you’re saving as much money as possible whilst keeping things running productively. This is especially true for your office stationery and all the essential supplies that you’ll need for smooth operations. With some forward planning and consideration there are many ways you can quickly cut the costs of your stationery supplies without compromising on quality.

Here are our top tips for buying your office stationery on a budget:

Be organised

With so much to focus on, stationery might not be at the top of your priority list, however leaving it till it’s an emergency to place an order will only bump up the costs of delivery and contribute to rushed choices which may not be so cost-effective.

Be sure to purchase your office stationery before you completely run out, so that you can choose a cheaper delivery option and potentially save big over the course of the year!

Make bulk purchases

By ordering in large quantities for a longer period, instead of getting stationery as and when you need it, you could receive a good discount on your items as many retailers will give you a bulk buy offer. You could do this on a monthly or quarterly basis depending on your needs, meaning that you’ll save significantly on your necessary items as well as with delivery costs.

Set up a Business Account with your supplier

With a business account you’ll be able to set up a purchasing schedule to suit you, plus it will be less timely and simpler to place an order. Your supplier may also offer you exclusive discounts on your stationery and with a dedicated account manager you’ll benefit from better customer support, order tracking and returns processing.

Only buy what you need

Although bulk purchases may save you a lot of money, bulk buying unnecessary items like multiple different coloured packs of post-it notes or highlighters when you only need one, will add up hugely over the course of the year. Instead, cut costs and only get what you really need for productive office operations.

If your order is wrong, return it!

Although it may seem a hassle to return a box of pens that aren’t quite right or notepads in the wrong size, holding onto it and not making use of the supplies isn’t cost-efficient. By returning it you’ll be able to get the most value from your order, potentially save money and save on storage space for the products you really need.
