I sleep with two pillows actually. Most times I hold one against my body like a baby with my head on the other. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

hello again, i think the only reason we have changed pillows is because we move to a different place and he prefer that we leave most of our stuff than bring it with us. right now i dont think we will buy any pillows anytime soon coz we usually buy something that we feel is the best quality as it tends to last longer than anything cheap. it may cost more than the others but in the long run it will save you some money as you dont have to replace it unlike those who tend to buy cheaper quality and later on realized that it is only good for a short period of time. anyway, growing up i have only used 6 pillows (all mine coz i am a pillow person LOL) and that lasted me more than 20 years i love them and i have keep them the best way i know how coz i know it will cost my mom to buy me that much pillow LOL my mom is a very good keeper so we have clothes and stuff that is older than me, some of my kid clothes i still have now and i am still wearing 'em coz they are still in a great condition. how about you? how often do you change your pillow and other stuff at home? takecare

i think changing of things depends on its condition really coz sometimes it is no longer usable and there is no use of keeping them unless of course it means the whole world to you. that's great that you do give some of your stuff with family who needs them, we do the same thing, some we give to places who accepts donations like that. i think the oldest thing my mom have is our cabinet, she have it for more than 30 years now and she still wants to keep it even though it looks like a ruined box LOL have a good one!

Not that frequent. I remember watching in one of the Oprah shows a "test" you can use. "Fold" the pillow into half. If it bounces back to original position immediately and easily, that pillow is still working well.

I change pillows every two years or could be a year after. Some pillows are stuffed with fiberfill, good thing they are washable. You can wash pillow wraps with soap and few drops of disinfectant to kill presence of micro-organisms. I am a meticulous pillow owner. I always make sure that pillow cases are changed often. Pillows have to be placed in a sun-bathe position the whole day if the temperature is high and hot. The soundest sleep I could make is that when I am using pleasant smelling beddings. My pillow cases are in light color, light prints if they are printed but I prefer them in white.

I have not changed my pillows in years. My pillows are extremely comortable, and just the way I like them. I change my pillow cases when they get dirty, and when I change the sheets, but the pillows inside those cases have been there for years.

Either when they start to feel hard on my head or they start to get flat. Especially if they get all oil stained from body oils etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I have this favorite pillow which I have had for some years now. But I make it a point to buy new pillows every year and donate the old ones either to my brother or to calamity victims.

Hello vanities, It depends. When I don't feel comfortable with the existing pillow, I will change. Normally when the time comes, I will buy the whole set - 4 pillows and 2 bolsters for my bedroom. The old ones will go to another room which we don't really use.
