For a limited time, you can order a Uni-ball retractable gel pens in assorted colors (8 ct.) from Walmart for only $3.29 each with FREE in-store pickup. That's a savings of $9.70 per pack.
I like to splurge and get my boys at least one pack of nice pens for school. I know that I loved having a nice pen to write with for school. It somehow made doing school work just a little bit more fun. However, I'm not willing to buy a ton of nice pens and have them lose them either.
