How frequently do you take a look through your credit report?

Not often enough I'm sure.  I know it is bad, but I tend to avoid it.  It depresses me to look at it. :(

Once a year, usually during tax time.

I will pull one of the three free credit reports once a year, but not all at the same time.  I like to see my reports throughout the year hence this sort of schedule works:

January - Equifax

All free of charge.
