I don’t make the pencil rules. I just follow them. All my teacher friends are sharing the picture above on Facebook in hopes of imploring parents to not by cheap pencils for the school year. We homeschool and I can attest to the fact that Ticonderoga are top notch. I know why the teachers request them. They really do last forever, hardly ever break and sharpen like a dream.
Fortunately, Amazon has you covered!
Amazon has Dixon Ticonderoga Wood-Cased 2HB Pencils, 96 Pencils for $6.92!
That is $3.00 cheaper than the lowest price I’ve ever seen them! Demand really is good for capitalism. ;)
This deal is just over SEVEN CENTS per pencil. If you buy a 10 pack of Dollar Tree pencils for $1, you’re paying $.10 per pencil. So with this deal, you’re getting a higher quality pencil for CHEAPER THAN the dollar store pencils! It’s a no brainer! Get the better pencils!
If you don’t want to commit to 96, there are smaller pack sizes. But the 96 is really the best value!
