When one year comes to an end, another begins. As the year ends, a lot of your supplies end as well. I am not talking about your stock of goods. No. you pay attention to it anyway. I’m talking about other office material, pens, pencils, paper, etc.
Make a list of all the things you plan to do for the next year. If you have events coming up, you will need cards, business gifts, etc. See if you will need extra clocks, boards, cleaning supplies and other things that you generally would forget. By planning these beforehand, you can avoid yearlong costs and be done with it once and for all. See if you need stationery, toiletries, a new vacuum – you never know when you will have to get rid of that old Hoover.
Contact wholesale suppliers. Say that you are an organization and they will be willing to give you their products at a lower price. Contact a business gifts company beforehand and have them ready for the next year so that you can get things done as soon as the need arises. See if you could get some new furniture for the office from year-end sales. Changing the work environment enhances creativity and elevates efficiency by a notable degree.
Buy a few indoor plants to be kept in your office space. Green soothes the eyes and plants give the additional benefit of purifying air so you will be breathing less polluted oxygen for the rest of the year. printer, fax and photocopy machines may need refilling. Laptops might need new cables. You might want to consider getting a coffee maker, all these things will create the necessary environment for your employees to function for the upcoming year without a serious threat to their levels of productivity and the flow of work.

If you are the kind-hearted boss, you could get a new set of uniforms for your support staff and get them new equipment which will make their jobs easier. Think of every little thing you might need and get them. This will make you come across as a well-organized person and will also make your year ahead a lot easier. Imagine the janitor coming and complaining that toilet cleaner is over, just as the secretary said that the photocopy machine had run out of paper. And when you go to the bathroom I pray that you won’t find yourself in the awful situation where toilet paper is over! Things like these can turn your good day bad, and your bad day worse. So why take a risk when you can renew your stocks beforehand?
