  1. Sherra Shearer says:

    I use a combination of both, but mostly the regular #2 yellow pencils. I bear down too hard to write with most mechanical pencils.

  2. Candace Marley says:

    My kids prefer to use the mechanical pencils, but I still use the old fashioned ones that you gotta sharpen for marking on my craft patterns. I guess there still a little old-fashioned in me…I just prefer them.

  3. carla hoffman says:

    Yes I still use no.2 pencil, infact the are great to have around the house for times my husband is making repair’s and need’s to mark a spot.

  4. Dawn Ehrenstrasser says:

    I typically use a mechanical pencil because I can never find the pencil sharpener or the cheap ones I buy break the lead in the pencils before they get sharp enough to use! It would be nice to have a good sharpener!

  5. Nichole Garzone says:

    I still use the #2 pencils. I do not like the mechanical pencils.. They are the BEST pencils to use…
    Thank you

  6. wendy says:

    I use both types of pencils. I am a teacher and I buy this type of sharpener for my classes to use. the electric ones tend to wear out whereas these keep working! I can put these at each table for my kids to use as needed.

  7. Barbara Forde says:

  8. Sharlene Morani says:

    I personally rarely use pencils anymore but on the rare occasion that I do, it is usually a No. 2 pencil. I don’t really have a preference but my daughter loves to sharpen pencils so that is what we buy!!

  11. Lauren says:

    I’m a pen person myself, but I give a pencils to the kids if they want to write. Far easier to wipe off a stray mark on a table than a pen.

  37. Elizabeth Harrell says:

    Our son uses #2 pencils for homeschool, we do have so mechanical , but many many more #2. There is nothing like a good pencil, springs don’t fly across the room and he does not run out of lead nearly as quick. He would really love a new sharpener for school this year!

  38. Kimberly Anderson says:

    We all still use #2 pencils in our house and love them!

  39. Maureen English says:

    I like to use regular pencils because the lead always breaks on the mechanical ones. I still have one child who still uses pencils in school – they don’t want mechanical pencils. Could always use a pencil sharpener. Thanks!

  40. Kristy Wilson says:

    With 2 kids in the house, we have an abundance of regular #2-type pencils, so that’s what we use!
    Oh, and we could always use more sharpeners!

  41. June Soliday says:

  43. kellie terwin says:

    i use mechanical

  44. Maryann Drapkin says:

    I still use #2 pencils. So I need a sharpener!

  45. Kim Tomlin says:

    I still use #2 pencils to do word search puzzles but I buy mechanical pencils for my 8th & 10th graders. My 10th grader (my almost 15 yr. old daughter) is allergic to something in wooden pencils so she has to use mechanical pencils.

  46. Edy Luttrell says:


  47. Kriss says:

    I have three kids. Two of them prefer regular #2 pencils & LOVE to use the sharpeners but there is one that loves mechanical. Crazy, but whatever gets them to do their homework. :)

  48. lynn botos says:

    no.2 last longer so yes i use those!

  49. Paula DeWitt says:

    I use mechanical pencils but my son uses #2 pencils as he cannot hold the mechanical pencils correctly to write. He gets easily frustrated! – Thank you for this giveaway!

  50. Kelly says:

    we use regular ( my preference) and my one daughter uses mechanical

  51. dawn thomas says:

    I use the #2′s all the time. Still the best!

  52. Amanda says:

    I use “old school” pencils around the house but mechanical pencils when I’m out and about. That way if the lead breaks I can just advance the lead and don’t have to carry a sharpener!

  53. Rikki Jones says:

    I use whatever I can get my hands on :) My daughter uses pencils for school work.
