The article is an attempt at estimating the possession of durable goods in households facing financial and economic crisis. The data have been obtained from the field research conducted in ten largest Polish cities between June and September 2011. The sample consisted of 1896 respondents. To determine what durable goods are possessed by households faced by crisis, the availability of mechanical household appliances, infotainment and portable equipment is analysed. Then the article examines how long the equipment has been in use, the level of satisfaction of households’ demand for durable goods and changes in their availability. The article closes with a summation and major conclusions.
