These stationeries amount to a major chunk of the office operational expenses. According to a recent survey, 20% of these expenses are excess expenses, which are not really required by a company. If managed properly, this operational cost can be reduced largely, thus, saving a considerable amount of money.

A pound saved is a pound earned. Everyone wants and needs to save money wherever possible. Even small steps and modification can save you a considerable amount, which can be utilised for other important expenses required in a business.
