Not to long ago Bartering was a very popular approach used by some small businesses. Maybe it still has value for you. So consider some of the items you may use and/or need.
How about slow moving inventory bartered for some painting or construction your business may need? Consider bartering lawn care, office or window cleaning for a product or service you have on some regular schedule. Like dinner for two (if you have a restaurant) once a month for cleaning service. You can check on line for bartering services or talk to your current providers.
Try it, you may like it. But remember, if it is ongoing, to predefine an exit plan as well. For example the plan can end with two weeks notice.
