Default How often do you calibrate your pH meter?

I have never really trusted the pH meter that I recently purchased, so I tend to go through the calibration fluids awful fast. How often should it need calibrating? How often do you calibrate yours?

BTW, I use this one:

I calibrate everytime I use it, but I have unlimited access to free cal solution.

If I got it for free, I would calibrate every time as well. But you don't really get that many times out of a bottle of it, and when you add shipping into it, the price starts to accumulate.

I would say once a day should be ok, or once for a brew session.
