Re: POLL: How often do you?

  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush? I bought a new one a few months ago, but before that I would say it had been years.
    2. Buy new underwear? All the time.  I really like new undies.
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges? Once a month.
    4. Buy new running shoes? Mine don't get a lot of use, so every few years?
    5. Buy a new bathing suit? Each summer.
  • 1. I bought a new round one in January for blowdrying
    2. Well I bought new underpants b/c mine are all too big, but the new ones I bought are too big as well and I can't be bothered buying more again until I'm stateside, so I wear too big underpants.
    3. I have brush and a sponge.  I put both in the dishwasher and when the sponges look discoloured I throw them out.
    4. I need new gym shoes SO bad.  I generally buy them once a year when I'm home.  I bought new ones in October but they were New Balance and I continue to wear my grubby NB I bought in 2005.
    5. I just bought 2 bikinis, ahhh!

  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush? 5 Years maybe
    2. Buy new underwear? Whenever I see something nice or for a holiday so a few times a year.
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges? I buy a pack of five every 4/5 weeks.
    4. Buy new running shoes? Every 2-4 years
    5. Buy a new bathing suit? Yearly for holidays

  • 1.  Only if I've forgotten to pack one.  My favorite brush is one my ex-step-mother gave me in elementary school.  I just wash it up when it gets grubby.
    2.  Hardly ever.  I'm planning to get some new stuff before DH's R&R this fall.
    3.  I hate sponges, they gross me out.
    4.  Every three or four years.
    5.  About every three or four years.
  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush?  hmmm....not for a few years and I am in need of a new one but never can seem to find one that I like.
    2. Buy new underwear?  when I see a pair I like i typically buy.  I do a full revamp probably once a year.
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges?  I wash my sponges in the dishwasher every time I run a load and I buy new ones about every other month.
    4. Buy new running shoes?  twice a year since I typically do lots of running
    5. Buy a new bathing suit? 2 new suits a year 
  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush?
    Every few years probably.
    2. Buy new underwear?
    I'm due to buy some...probably every six months
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges?
    Every three months
    4. Buy new running shoes?
    I've had the same running shoes for eight years lol. They are pretty disgusting but I love them.
    5. Buy a new bathing suit?
    If I had my way, never. I bought two before our honeymoon and I wore one of them twice (the other still has the tags on).

  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush? I switched to combs years ago, and bought the newest one at the beginning of this year.
    2. Buy new underwear? I tend to buy bras/undies in sets, so whenever I need a new bra (approx. 3 times a year, since I rotate)
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges? Last time was months ago, in a pack of 10. I clean and use a few times before I toss them.
    4. Buy new running shoes? Last time was 3-4 years ago...they don't get a lot of use.
    5. Buy a new bathing suit? Bought one last summer, but I hate bathing suit shopping, so I tend to put it off, and only buy if I need one (ie for vacation).

  • 1.  I have curly hair, so haven't owned a hairbrush since the 80's when the crazy frizzy hair was popular!

    2.  At home usually every few months, we have a brand called 'Bonds' which is the best undies ever, they also sell them in the grocery stores so every now and then I used to buy a new set.  Other than that, always around birthdays and anniversarys I get a new set of nice bra and panties.

    3. Once a month

    4. probably about once a year

    5. every summer

  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush? if I don't break it (I drop them often) then it can be awhile
    2. Buy new underwear? every few months
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges? I change it out every two weeks
    4. Buy new running shoes? if running regularly every six months
    5. Buy a new bathing suit? never

  • 1. rarely. i bought a new one when i cut my hair short and don't anticipate buying another for awhile.

    2. when i lived in the US, probably every few months when i'd see something cute i'd buy a pair or 2. in germany i buy as needed (or not even that often!), but try to wait til i am stateside.

    3. every couple months i buy a 4 pack.

    4. used to be 2x/year when i was a more serious runner. now, since i am more of a gym goer, i might buy a new pair every year or so. (PSA: you really shouldn't wear old sneakers for weight bearing activities- they don't offer the support or cushion your lower extremities need)

    5. every couple years. i have probably 5 or 6 right now and really don't need that many! i expect i will need a new one next season when i have baby fat to lose.

  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush?  I tend to buy a new brush if I get a new hair style - like I jus tbrought this super big round one like the one my hairdresser used - I have another one that is square and flat for when I'm blowing it out ect..
    2. Buy new underwear?  When I go on vacation - 2-3 times a year and I ditch the old ones after a couple of years.
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges?  Not as often as I should - be then I dont clean as often as I should :-)
    4. Buy new running shoes?  I have one pair that is almost 6 years old (they are hacked up but ohhh so comfy) and I got another pair when I was in Utah last year and we had to do hours of hiking.
    5. Buy a new bathing suit?  Usually every 2 years - I always keep 3-4 on hand.
  • 1. Buy a new hairbrush? never...don't use one (wide tooth combs only for my curls)
    2. Buy new underwear? whenever I go to the States (I'm very picky about my undies) and once a year
    3. Buy new kitchen sponges? buy a six-pack every two months
    4. Buy new running shoes? workout shoes every 6 mo.
    5. Buy a new bathing suit? whenever I go to the beach (which has been every few years)

  • This is like the Ghost of IN Past! It's weird seeing some of these names pop up again (i.e. Alcyone)! but since I didnt answer the first time around...

    1. Hairbrush - almost never. I just use a comb, and I buy one once a year or so? Usually just when I've lost too many! Haha!
    2. underwear - all the time. Pretty much whenever I make a trip to the US.
    3. kitchen sponges - not often enough. Yuck. But we hardly use them. Mostly a brush for dishes, which we replace whenever it starts to show wear, and microfiber cloths for the counters, etc.
    4. running shoes - Running? What's that? :) Probably every 5 years?
    5. bathing suit - every few years. Whenever I start to feel that my old one is too small or too skimpy. Otherwise they start to wear out after about 3 years

  • I was thinking? whoa, flates is back? Nope, just a really old thread. LOL

    I was kinda wondering how long it's been since I've used Alcyone. Seeing my old siggy there, now I know.

    At least I have my own hairbrush now :D
