I seem to have as many pencils as pens around here..and I rarely use them. I seem to only use them if I am measuring something and need to make marks, or if something specifically calls for pencil. What about you? Do you use pencils?

I love pencils. I love the eraser on that pencil. I enjoy sharpening them too.

Did you know you can use the eraser in the pencil as a backing for pierced earrings to keep them from falling out if you have lost the original backing? Another reason to like erasers lol.

My grandson was here recently and was looking for a pencil to do some homework. We didn't have a single pencil in the house.

Yes I do for marking measurements and other things you don't want permanent marking.

I usually use my smartphone to take notes, but for the grocery list or minor notes, I still use paper. I use both pens and pencils, it depends on what I get first.

@snowy22315 The only pencil I sharpen a lot is the eye one.

They come in handy if you are doing crossword puzzles in paper form.

@snowy22315 An excellent point. Few of us are so good as to do crosswords in ink.

I use pencils to mark things in my children's textbooks and I also use them for my devotionals as well.

Yep, I am a pencil and pen hoarder and I still use them. I like writing in notebooks when ideas are fresh instead of waiting to get on my laptop. I also draw so pencils help out haha

I do have several of both but since I rarely use pencils..it seems like they stay in the cup and don't get tracked all over the place like pens sometimes do.

Yes I still do, for marking and jotting down notes... I used pencil to write down things that I might write down wrong side to iliminate the messy error I used it sinister in when everything is finale I used a pen.

I use pencils quite often. I use pencil in my address and phone books because the numbers often change. And with some contacts I only need the information for a little while. With a pencil I can then erase them later.

I have not had my hand on one in years. I did order colored pencils for my coloring books though.
