The 12 pack I bought last year are who knows where.

Went to target and bought a 60 pack for 4 dollars.

Now I need to get a bunch of tape measures.

Harbor Freight has coupons for free tape measures all the time. Sometimes you have a minimum spend requirement of a few bucks, sometimes no strings attached.

And do not forget to have a pencil sharpener or two to keep them sharp.

The last free harbor Freight Tape Measure I got died on its very first use. Another I got a few months back is still working. I guess you get what you pay for.

If you need one for each pencil the Dollar Store is your best bet…

Just got back from Dollar General. 24 pencils and two sharpeners for $2

Right next to Kilgores, one of my wood suppliers.

One can never have enough pencils sharpened and ready to go. My kids sharpen them for me, with the electric sharpener of course, thus I rarely am short. Takes about 60 pencils to fill all the holders I keep around the shop.

It’s also a good idea to have one or two Pentel drafting pencils for those times you are too focused on marking sharp lines and don’t want to stop everything and re-sharpen your regular pencils.
