Default How long before replacing "missing" item?

So how long do you wait (search) for a missing item before replacing it? I know it depends on how vital it is, but lets go with a 4 on a 1-10 scale of importance.

I seem to have lost my reading glasses. Haven't seen them in a week. Not super vital, but they certainly help. Unfortunately they weren't cheap readers from the drug store...

For me, reading glasses are more like a '9' since I need them when working (on a computer 9-10 hours/day).

However I buy my reading glasses from Amazon at 5 pairs for $16 and I have about 25 of them stashed all over the place (home/workshop/office/vehicles/boat/etc). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LJOQBP4/

Can't look for them until you find them...

Well if you buy another pair and find your other glasses you will then have a back up.

Usually depends on the item. Seems most times I replace right before I end up finding it....
