Office Supplies Buying Guide

So you have your own office space (congrats!).  Maybe you are even lucky enough to have already furnished it and purchased the latest in office electronics (computers, printers, and the like).  But wait!  Your office shopping is nowhere near complete.  Setting up an office is more than just a desk, a phone, and some pens; there are a variety of other important supplies that you will need to keep on-hand.  And be sure to replenish your stock frequently, or you could end up being the one that has to run out of the office for more fax paper in the middle of an important message.

General Guidelines

* Compile a general list of the supplies you need.  Whenever an item on the list is running low, replenish supplies.  Generally, a monthly order should do.

* Every couple of months, review your office expenses.  When you understand how your supplies are fitting into the budget, it makes it easier to tailor your orders.  When possible, order in bulk.  It will always go to good use!
