Quick and easy ways to lessen costs associated with working at your organization. These are some immediate ways to increase a non-profits capacity through saving money.

This is particularly great if most of your work is computer oriented. No bus/transport costs, all your food is at home, time usually spent in commuting is can be spent working.
