    Find Equipment for Your Home Office Online...For Free!


    You probably have lots of potentially useful possessions cluttering up your garage, basement or attic. You know one day you'll probably get up the energy to haul all of it out to the curb to be picked up by the trash haulers. But what if you could give away some of that stuff and enable yourself to get free things that you actually need in return?

    Freecycle operates on the basic principle that "one man's trash is another man's treasure". The idea is to give away (for free) objects you don't need and avoid putting them into a landfill. Freecycle
    was started in May 2003 to help reduce reduction in Tucson, Arizona and has since spread throughout the world.

    Freecycle accomplishes the noble goal of reducing waste on the planet by making it easy for people to join groups in their local communities. Joining a group only involves filling out a simple online e-mail form and replying to a registration e-mail confirming your e-mail address (all groups are moderated and the moderator much approve your application to join the group). You are free to join as many groups as you want in your local area. If there isn't a group in your area, there are instructions for starting your own.

    Once you are in a group, you merely offer an item you no longer want to the group. You aren't selling it to anyone...you must give it away for free. After you offer an item to others, you can post requests for items that you want in the group forum. This could allow you to pick up items (such as a table and filing cabinet for your home office) without paying anything for them.

    What could be better than reducing waste to help save the planet while you are saving start-up costs for your business. So join Freecycle today and trade your way to business savings!

    Save Money on Equipment - Comparison Shop Online

    Prices can vary widely from store to store or from web site to web site. Driving around searching for the best bargains when outfitting a small business is a huge waste of time and gasoline. Fortunately, web sites such as Shopping.com and Shopzilla are set up to do comparison shopping for us.

    On Shopping.com, just key in the information about the product you are looking to buy (such as the manufacturer and model number of a laptop computer). As you can see below, the web site compares the prices in various stores (both brick and mortar and online) so you can determine exactly where the best deal can be had.



    As you can see from this screen capture, a Toshiba laptop varies in price by as much as $420 dollars. And who even knew that Home Depot was now selling laptops! So spend a few minutes online before shopping to save yourself driving, aggravation and money!

    Saving Money on Small Biz Text Books



    Waiting until the last minute (i.e. - the first day of class) to purchase your text books is never a good idea. Planning ahead can save you money on your book. Check online sources such as Amazon.com and Half.com for deals on used books. Small Business Management: An Entrepreneurial Emphasisis less than $70 used on Amazon.com as opposed to the list price of $153!

    Your book store might also carry copies of used texts if you get there early enough. Even if you can't find a used book, buying from Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com or the book publishers web site can usually net you savings off the list price of the book. Rest assured that you can be almost certain of paying the highest price for a new book at your college book store.

    So check with your professors before classes start for the books you'll need and start saving the big bucks!
