Let me let you into a secret, I’m a bit cheap. Â Superman had Kryptonite, I have freebies. Â In these times of recession, I thought I would share a few of my money saving ideas. Â These are specific to business, but are applicable to just about anyone.
Keep Rent Cheap
My office is in the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, East London. Â My unit is cheap as it does not have any windows. Â Units with windows cost twice as much and are baking in summer.
Use Voip Phone Systems
I run my business using voipfone, an internet based phone system. Â Each number costs me Â£1 per month as opposed to Â£10 with BT.
Outsource work to India
I have save Â£1000 by outsourcing development work and product listing creation to the Far east. Â Use sites like eLance to find good, cheap workers.
Cash Back Credit Cards
My credit card pays me 1% cashback on everything I spend. Â This year I stand to get several thousand pounds for doing exactly nothing.
I use Google Apps to run my company intra net and email for free.
