Cheap disposable pens that work well and last ages

Advantages: Cheap and last for ages, nice dark colours
I am slightly obsessed with making lists and do them for everything so I have pens lying about everywhere. For me the best pens that you can buy are still good old Bic Biros. I find that they last longer than more expensive so called fancy ones and the ink is a nicer colour and they also happen to be more reasonably priced than most other biros that you can buy.
They come in black, blue, red and green but the ones I usually buy are just the plan old black and blue variety. You can tell a Bic biro by its orange colour and matching lid which corresponds to the colour of the ink in the pen.
They have a roller ball on the bottom which doesn't need to be pushed down too hard onto the paper when you are writing to be able to get a nice defined colour and they are pretty much the perfect size for writing as writing doesn't look too thick or too thin.
The colour that comes from the pens is always nice and dark and doesn't look faint on the paper and I have old school work from years ago that was written with Bic biros that still looks as fresh and defined today as it did all those years ago.
I also find that a biro will last for ages before the ink runs out. You can get months of use out of a single pen before needing to throw it away. They are designed to be thrown away when the ink runs out instead of replacing the ink inside but as they are so cheap this is never a worry. They only cost about 30 pence each which really is amazing value when you think about it.
Bic Biros have been around for so many years and are still going strong as they work really well and have always been really reasonably priced. There is no need to spend an absolute fortune on a pen when these cheap disposable ones do just a good a job for a fraction of the price.
