Do you use, wear, or drive something until it falls apart?

Or do you upgrade your stuff frequently, or buy multiple shoes or sweaters so they wear evenly, or trade in your car every few years to keep it “new”?

Whichever you choose, do you feel you get your money’s worth from a given item?

My dad was an upgrader. New clothes regularly. Traded in his car every three years.

Me? I’ve had the same appliances for seventeen years. When they croak, I’ll by new ones. I wear shoes, sweaters, coats until they’re falling off of me. And I always drive my cars until they collapse. In twenty five years of driving, I’m only on my third car.

But maybe I’m wrong.
