Are they about the size of a playing card? they are slightly larger than playing cards, but bonus points as usual for mentioning the interests of the puzzle host :)

Would you normally buy one each year I do not normally buy these things at all. People who do buy them will usually buy them once or perhaps twice a week or is it usual to buy them all at once? if you want, say, five of them, you will usually buy all five at once

I did mean to say "would one normally buy etc

Do you have an aversion to them on grounds of taste, lack of use for them, feel they're a waste of time, too expensive, they remind you too much of your advancing age?
