How frequently do you guys use the CPL, ND, UV filters? are they really worth buying?

UV, never.  There's already a UV filter in front of the sensor, and I use a lens hood to protect the lens.

CPL and ND only occassionally.  Polarizer is useful for enhancing blue skies, especially if there are clouds and the sun is roughly 90 degrees away from the section of the sky.  It's also useful for removing or reducing reflections.  ND is useful for getting a slower shutter speed - think moving water that you want to smooth out.
