When was the last time you actually wore something out? I’m not talking about socks or underwear or things you use for work. I’m also not talking about things that could be repaired like a TV with a failed component that costs too much to replace. I’m talking about the things that usually gets “upgraded” or replaced before they have been used up. I’m talking about the things you own, where all components exhibit enough wear that it either breaks completely in an irrepairable fashion or where the parts are so worn down that they do not function anymore.

So what have you worn out recently?

Did you decide to replace it or did you already have a “backup”?

Bonus question: What is the oldest thing you own that you use daily?
