  • LOL I keep them until they are in shreds. I'm frugal and don't ever throw anything away that still has some use(within reason). I don't hoard or anything lol. But like when we eat a meal, whatever is leftover I always wrap it up and put it in the fridge but usually I only cook what can be eaten and then eat everything on my plate. I just really hate to waste anything. There are so many people in the world that have so little and I think about those things.

  • When they completely fall apart. I did get some new ones 3 years ago. Some I have are over 23 years old.

  • I suppose every few years I buy new towels for one of the bathrooms, but I keep the older ones until they fall apart.

  • Only when we need them. I have towels that I bought when we first got married 20 years ago and they're still in very good condition & we still use them.
