Every start up has the same problem -- they must conserve their cash as long as possible until they get money flowing into the business. Unfortunately, starting a business is expensive, even with all the great bootstrapping advice you can find online.
But don't despair! Occasionally, the U.S. government does something that is actually beneficial. I realize that's hard to believe, but stick with me on this one.
In this case, I am referring to the General Services Administrations auction site. You can bid on everything you could need to outfit your office and also put in a bid for that airport metal detector you always wanted.
Let's face it, outfitting an office is expensive. Furniture, computers, office supplies, equipment, phones and all the other accouterments needed for a 21st Century business can hit your bank account harder than you might like. By using auction sites like GSA Auctions you can significantly reduce the cost of starting a new business.
