Question by Marci S: Where can I get cheap office supplies for my non-profit business?
I work for a non-profit women’s shelter. We are having trouble keeping our office supplies under budget. Any ideas on where I can get cheaper office supplies? We generally buy from Wal-Mart or Office Depot right now. Sometimes people donate stuff but we still have to buy quite a bit.

As a non-profit you may solicit local business (especially stationary stores) and even large corporations for donations of extra supplies – you’ll be surprised at what you’ll be able to secure. Make a list and call – ask to speak to someone in “customer relations” let them know who you are and ask if they could help your non-profit out with “stationary supplies” – have a list of what you need – copy paper, staples, envelopes, pens & whatever. (as long as you don’t straight out ask for money, people can be quite generous) Offer to pick up – and leave a brochure or mission statement on your letterhead (if you have one) or business card. Also you can get paper supplies from “wholesalers” stationary suppliers.
