Cost Cutting Tips For Businesses - Roundup

Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. So when I set out to write a post on some cost cutting tips I've picked up over the years, it dawned on me that I should probably sweep the web to see if I was actually saying something unique. As it turns out, I wouldn't have had much to say that wasn't already out there. So, with that in mind I dutifully scoured the web and made bookmarks as I went and pulled together the following list of resources that I found to be pretty valuable as far as cost cutting, and thought they would be worth sharing. This will also save me the time of writing a 1200 word post, so this is a win-win-win in my own humble opinion.

Cost Saving Resources
  1. Strategies for reigning in marketing spend - Some tips for how to make your CMO pay attention to you when it comes time to slash the marketing budget.
  2. Reduce your overhead - Some smart tips for getting back to basics and knocking down your ongoing overhead costs
  3. Free open source options for small business software - Affording licensing for Microsoft products and many others can really get expensive, these options will provide you high quality software for the best price imaginable...

The Tax filing deadline is a far ways away, but there's still a lot you can do to get ready for next year, and you probably haven't tied all the lose ends from this past year's tax season. If you haven’t already filed, you better hurry to the nearst post office or get online.
Tax talk got me thinking, how would you spend our Tax dollars? Leave a link to your site or add them to this post. Here are mine:
1. Increased education spending (per pupil and teacher salary)
2. Increased local law enforcement spending
3. Immediate incentives for car manufactures who stop producing vehicles that use fossil fuel.
4. Do away with Social Security but match funds put into a private retirement account.
5. Increase grants for private citizens to invent or improve alternative energy solutions.
There are a lot more but that should be a good start.

Injury at work or medical problems related to surgeries are a common problem that many have to deal with. Medical bills and other expensive expenses can pile up, and insurance rates can go through the roof. Don't go through those problems by yourself, make sure you have the proper representation, and if you deserve a structured settlement, then you should get what you deserve.
