I have the date stamp pillows also so they do get changed regularly. Cutting boards - I have plastic ones and get new ones when they are no longer able to be thoroughly cleaned.
In terms of general furniture - we hold on to things for decades. DH and I still have the original furniture we bought when we moved out of home and in together (and I still have some childhood furniture I brought with me - bookshelves and desks).

We use wood chopping boards never plastic (eww) glass for meat. I only change them when they crack or split, they are quiet think and my dad sands them down for me.
Pillows when needed.

Well you learn something new everyday! I was always led to believe wood blocks were porous thus were breeding grounds for bacteria. My DH in particular is very OCD about food prep, handling and cleanliness. He worked in a large club years ago to be told by one of the chefs to only use glass.

We have had our pillows for over 7 years. I have good down pillows that I send with my doona every 18 months to get professionally cleaned inside and out at the factory.
I hate the idea of landfill so bought great quality we dont have to replace over cheap landfill.
I have a great wood chopping block that I use for meat. I have plastic ones for my bread and veg. I hate glass as the sound of knifes of glass is awful like nails on a chalk board. It also can't be good for my knifes on the surface of them.

I switched from wooden boards to plastic. Dh just wasnt washing and drying them properly and they were growing mould. I got sick of nagging so now I use plastic and put it in the dishwasher. Hopefully it's enough to kill the germs.
