How often do you change your computer's peripherals?

How often do you change your computer's peripherals (mouse, speakers, webcam, keyboard etc.)? Do you change them more frequently than you change the components of your computers (motherboard, fans etc.)?

I only change stuff when it breaks and by breaks I mean totally unusable, I really ware stuff out and still use it even if it looks really roughed up. But as for the question I'd say about the same I haven't upgraded my computer in a while but I've got a new mouse and headphones about a year ago when my others ones broke.

I use my mouse and keyboard a lot so I end up replacing it once every two years. Haven't changed any of the peripherals for the past 8 years, the computer is working perfectly fine and I don't use it for gaming.

i like to get others to do it for me and i am never good with complicated things that involve wiring

I definitely don't change the peripherals more often than my actual system. Honestly I can get a lot of years out of peripherals so it's hard to say, but usually about 7 or 8 years I'd be able to make them last.
