Your office might need you to work properly, but there are some other things which make your office run smoothly. Well, yes we are talking of various stationery items. Indeed, they are the most important things that should be there on your office desk. A day without any stationery item on the entire office room will make nothing but chaos and cacophony. However, before you set off to stop that from happening, you would be thankful if you take a look at the things that you should keep in mind while buying.
· Make a Good Plan Beforehand
It is always good to plan what you are up for buying if you are buying from the wholesale stores. Before you buy stationery (ร้านเครื่องเขียน, which is the term in Thai) products for your office, it is good to jot down the total requirements. If you do not do that, maybe you will end up with having more than you need or less than the minimum requirements.
· Make a List of Items
Buying from the wholesale stationery store (อุปกรณ์เครื่องเขียน, term in Thai) can be a lot cheaper than buying from retail stores. You should better make a list of important items so that you do no end up buying colour pencils and sharpeners instead of rubber stamps and inkpads. Making a list also cuts down unnecessary requirements.
· Do not Negotiate on Quality
Sometimes we end up doing a whole lot of bargaining and negotiating that we forget that there has to be a minimum level of quality. No matter how much quantity of stationery products you need, some things should have better quality too. Suppose you try to save a few bucks by buying the cheapest set of pens. Maybe after a week or so, you find that the ink of most of the unused ones dried up. Therefore, maintaining equilibrium between quantity and quality is very important.
· Include Refilling Expenses
Unless you are only buying use-and-throw pens, most of the pens need to refill or ink up for fresh use. You should include these into the expenses too so that you do not wonder what to do when you finish your last drop ink before signing an important deal. Buying assorted refills of the pens beforehand will help you, though.
You can find almost everything in the stationery store. Stationery items are mostly cheap unless you go for high-quality pens or something else.
