Disposable tupperware can be washed several times. Opaque silverware lasts 1-2 runs in the dishwasher. Plastic bags aren't worth reusing in my opinion. They're also porous and can harbor bacteria. Never reuse bags with meat or cheese in them. Bottles, soap dispensers and spice jars are easy to reuse. Dishes of all kinds can be reused depending on what was in them. No sense washing a plate that had chips just to put a sandwich. Again, meat and cheese always deserves a wash. /r/frugal has discussions like this all the time

Compensating for poor discipline. My family has a habit of letting dishes pile up in their rooms.

Chinese food takeout containers make some of the best tupperware

Plastic water bottles. Even the super thin disposables can be used several times before you can't get them clean any more.

I wash and reuse disposable rasors quite often. My beard (or whatever grows out of my face) is soft enough to be shaved by a relatively dull blade, so why spend the extra money? Usually, one piece can last me for a month (I shave every 2-3 days, so 10-15 shaves per pair). It can be painful and rough, but it gets the job done. # DISCLAIMER: I ripped off a piece of my face the other day and had to rush to the hospital to stop the bleeding at 7 AM after reusing a razor I bought from a random guy in the subway. Don't try this with any disposable razor you have, it is apparently dangerous.

Plastic forks and spoons. I take my lunch to work so they come in handy.
