Freelance Writing Supplies: What you need, Where to Shop

One of the biggest benefits of being a freelance writer is that you do not need to spend a lot of money on supplies, office space, and other items. Imagine the startup costs involved with leasing office space and filling it with all the necessary items. When compared to those of a freelance writer, you will see that there is a huge difference. With that being said, there are some freelance writing supplies that you need. If you know what they are and where to shop, you should be able to load up and forget about them for a few months.

Although it may not be considered a supply in a traditional sense, every freelance writer needs a quality computer. I started my career using a Compaq laptop but upgraded to an Acer desktop after a couple of years. Both of them have treated me well, and I still use the laptop when traveling. Remember, computers are not nearly as expensive as they once were. You should not have any problems finding a quality computer, laptop or desktop, for $500 or less.

Where can you shop for a good computer? I purchased both of my units at Circuit City. Of course, this is not your only option. There are many other electronics stores, such as Best Buy, to choose from. And of course, you can shop online as well. Additionally, if you are on a tight budget do not be afraid to shop for a pre-owned computer.

To go along with your computer, you will also want to purchase a printer. This does not have to be anything special because you will not be printing a lot of documents. That being said, you definitely want to get something that is high quality and reliable. With both computers that I purchased, a printer was included for free. Circuit City is always offering deals like this, so be sure to keep your eyes open if you are in the market.

Now for some less expensive freelance writing supplies that will be sitting on or near your desk. Here is a list of the items that are surrounding me right now: pens, pencils, rubber bands, paper clips, sticky notes, printer paper, stapler, and a calculator. Of course, I may be missing a few things, but these essentials help to keep me on track day in and day out. All of these supplies can be purchased at an office supply store, or a retail outlet such as Wal-Mart or Target.

With the above freelance writing supplies you will always have what you need to make the most of your career.
