No. 2 pencils are on every back-to-school shopping list (and most teachers’ wish lists). Fortunately, they’re never terribly expensive or hard to come by, but once in a while, an especially impressive deal comes along, and that’s the best time to stock up.

Now is the time and you have your choice of retailers from which to buy them.

Ticonderoga — which can trace its roots to the first Dixon pencil created from rolled, baked strips of graphite, clay and water pressed into cedarwood in 1812 — is one of the most popular pencils for students. Right now, you can purchase a package of 96 Ticonderoga yellow No. 2 pencils for $10.28.

Even more convenient, the packs are available for the same price from three major retailers Amazon, Walmart and Sam’s Club.

The package includes eight boxes containing 12 unsharpened soft No. 2 pencils each. The pencils are made from premium wood from responsibly managed forests and are topped with latex-free erasers.

Whether you have a houseful of kids getting ready to go back to school, only have one student at home or plan to donate school supplies to a local organization, getting in on this deal could be wise. The average teacher spends about $500 a year of their own money on school supplies. Gifting your children’s educators with some extra pencils is a thoughtful and helpful way to start the semester.

Check with your favorite local charities, as well. Foster care agencies, social service organizations, or “Stuff the Bus” events are often in need of essential supplies.
