This blog focuses frequently on how and why to buy used office furniture. But that’s not the only way you can save money and conserve resources. Author sjennings at Arnold’s Office Furniture has written an insightful post on where to look for office equipment that’s in good condition. For example, refurbished, fully tested computers (with a 6 month warranty) are available from sites like DiscountPC.net. Some of the other places you can find used electronics may surprise you.
Sjennings also recommends purchasing pre-owned appliances for the break room – although this can be a little more challenging. Finding a toaster oven that (a) works and (b) is reasonably clean could be difficult. Plus, break room appliances aren’t that expensive to buy new anyway. Buying used office furniture is probably going to give you more bang for your buck than trying to track down a mini-fridge on Craig’s list.
