I like to have a few packs of these around the house because they mysteriously disappear often (those of you who have roommates of the feline persuasion will understand that!)
Right now Office Depot and OfficeMax have 24-Pack BIC Xtra Mechanical Pencils (various styles) for $3. Select free store pickup if stock permits. I checked and all were available at my local store.
- 24-Pack of .5mm BIC Xtra Precision Mechanical Pencils (assorted barrels) $3
- 24-Pack of .9mm BIC Xtra Strong Mechanical Pencils (assorted barrels) $3
- 24-Pack of .7mm BIC Xtra Life Mechanical Pencils (assorted barrels) $3
The same product is $7.50 on Amazon!
