IDEA: Ask vendors for cost cuts: buy their in-house less costly off-brand substitution products.

A-   A+

Ask your vendors for their in-store substitution or off-brand supplies instead of name brands. Ask for a complete YTD listing of your largest purchases by item and go through the listing marking those items that are not absolutely necessary. Your vendor will tell you the other cheaper brands he sells in order to keep your continuing business, otherwise, if he will not, his competitor will jump on it.

Is there anything we missed?
