How to Reduce Costs and Save Time at the Office

List: Posted: 12/10/10

The main goal of any business (besides bringing in money) should be to reduce costs and save time. When you reduce costs, you save money. When you save time, both you and your employees get more done, and you both get more time off.  If you are looking for ways to save money, and time at the office, here are some helpful tips.

For starters, not throwing things away that are reusable is a big way to reduce costs. When you use the front and back of paper, your trash bags don't fill up as fast and you spend less time taking them out the garbage. Plus, recycling is important.


Snail mail is becoming irrelevant. Express to your employees the importance of using email, and you will reduce costs from paper, postage, and envelopes. Not to mention, you don't have to go to the post office.


It might sound cruel but using unpaid interns to do tedious work is not only a great way to save time among your employees, it is one of the most popular ways to reduce costs. Interns need experience, and you need to reduce costs. Another way to reduce costs is by purchasing office supplies in bulk. You reduce costs by spending less money, but you get more products. You also save time by making fewer trips to the office supply store.
