How often do you change household items?

When the old ones don't work anymore. I use plastic chopping mats and replace them about once every 12 months because they get deep cuts and I worry that they're harbouring bacteria. Pillows are when they're no longer comfortable.

We've got the pillows with the date stamp so I buy new ones then, which I think is every 18 months ?
I've got a really good huge thick timber chopping board which is 3 years old now and looks like it will last forever plus two small separate timber ones for meat or chicken and they also are coming up to a few years old - I think I'd only change them if they have cracks appearing which they don't at the moment

I don't use plastic or wood chopping blocks as they harbor bacteria I only use glass (which unfortunately bluntens the knives).

Pillows - about every 12 months.
Chopping boards - I have had my heavy wooden chopping boards about 2.5 years and they don't look like they will need replacing for a while yet.

Pillows I get ones witj the date stamps so when they come up, chopping boards, I also use a thick wooden one. I used to use glass but my Dad gave me some chef knives worth a few hundred dollars so I didn't want to damage them.

When they are broken, in need of repair or when I remember 😉

Only replace things when they need it.
Pillows are a little different to other things, as they fill up with dead dust mites/excrement etc... so they get replaced regularly.
Our chopping board was cheap, but we've had it for 5 years. Will eventually get something better that will last a lifetime.
Our approach to household items is to either buy something that will last a lifetime (or as close as possible...depending what it is), or to get something cheap and then upgrade when we can. Usually we buy things second hand.

I replace when they look like they need it. I was at my mums the other day and went to use her chopping board and realised she still has the same chopping board from when I was a child. Its a thick plastic board and it is so discoloured. I told meum I think she needs a new one and she just shrugged it off. I used a plate to chop my food lol.

My mum still has the chopping board she's had for 40 years... but it's wood, so that doesn't bother me. Plastic...*shudders*
