We use Bring app on our phones to try to only buy stuff we need. Incredibly simple to use. If you are running out of anything just quickly add it to the list and it updates the list on the other persons phone so whoever has dropped into the shop can bring the right stuff home. You can have more than one list shared with other people as well. In the shop just touch the item on the list once its in your basket and it disappears from the list.

We got rid of a lot when we moved house over a year ago. I list stuff Ive run out of (or will soon) for weekly shopping, which tends to cut down on duplicates and impulse buys (although sometimes things are too tempting).

I have a lovely misty blue glass trifle bowl with little matching dishes shaped like little fishes - it was a wedding present to my Kate mum & dad in the 60’s. I don’t use it but it’s stored in my kitchen cupboards taking up room but I’m loath to chuck it out
