We have to say that not all office supplies from dollar shops are awful, but you have to go through many of them to find a decent producer and model. For many of us, pencils and pens aren’t that important. We keep them around the house just in case we need them and rarely use them.
But some people use them a lot and need them to function perfectly every time. These people shouldn’t waste time experimenting with all the models available in dollar stores, when they can buy perfectly good pencils and pens at depot stores, right? In the long run, they might cost more, but they’ll be able to use them for a long time.
