Mechanical Pencils

A tisket and a tasket. I have lots of mechanical pencils that were on sale at Walgreen's. Now these Papermates are refillable, but at this price, the economics of refilling do not make sense. Of course there are the environmental benefits of not using them as disposables, which may make it all the worthwhile. but then you might also need a spare eraser when you refill the lead? Is it still better for the environment? Well, you save a lot of plastic.
