6. Remember what your parents always told you and turn out the lights. By turning out the lights in unused areas of the office or having motion sensor lights installed, you can see dramatic decreases in your utility bill.

7. Use the internet whenever possible. From sales calls to business conferences, there are a variety of internet-based technologies, such as Microsoft Office Live Meeting, that can provide you with low cost ways to negotiate with clients. Additionally, there are free web conferencing tools such as Zoho Meeting, which can lead to tremendous productivity.

8. Review your weekly spending. Are you purchasing office supplies once a week? Try buying in bulk once a month.

9. Do you have unused office space? If so, investigate the possibility of subletting the space. Sharing the rent and not paying for unused space are two very good reasons to discuss it with your landlord.

10. When looking for seasonal or general office staff, look into hiring students or working with a college for internship opportunities. College interns receive college credit while they work in your office, reducing your payroll and increasing your productivity.

Dawn Kraus has been working with small businesses and not-for-profit organizations since she graduated Johnson and Wales University in 1994.
