When I do a show I fashion something out of paper to fix onto the main exit door to use as a holder of some kind. Then I'll usually just put a note up saying "Borrowed a pencil? You wouldn't want to lose yours. Returns here" or something along those lines. I might not get every pencil that I've lent out but I'll get most of them back.

Although I tend to find that directors still nick pens and pencils from me.

That's why I carry a supply of crappy hotel pens.  I don't care if I don't get them back.

I've found that the gold sparkly pencils from party supply stores always come back to me.  It's not just a regular yellow pencil, so they remember where it came from...even if it wanders off for a few days, it comes back.

Although I can't say I worry about losing the pencils...that's why they are there, after all...

I'm surprised you forgot to call breaks.  Usually an actor will remind me to call them.  And I'll reply, "I was just going to do that."   ;)
