I haven't had any luck talking DH into not using our dishwasher, so having enough plates, bowls, etc. that we won't run out before we run a load kind of goes with the territory. Also, we routinely have several people over.
Bibs... she would drool through several a day. And i don't necessarily want to run laundry every single day. We may not have enough items to run laundry every day. Now that she is older and doesn't drool so much, we could probably get by on a 1-bib plan. I'll have to give it some thought.
I'm in the stocking up on clothes camp. if I find something I like, I buy several colors because I usually have a hard time finding stuff that I like, and inevitably when I really need a given item I can't find one that I like. I've worn pretty much the same size since I was 14, excluding pregnancy and birth-related changes, so I'm not too worried about having it end up being the wrong size. I put all the items in my wardrobe though--I don't wear one and keep one in reserve. I have some sandals that I adore, and bought a pair when I wore out the previous pair... now i wish I'd bought another to have in reserve.
The set of sheets we got at the time of our marriage ripped after 4 years. We bought duplicates when we found another set we liked, because we figured by the time these ones wear out they probably won't make that product anymore.
I probably should pare down on shampoo, etc. It would certainly make things simpler. There are so many products in the shower and I don't need that many.
I am pretty minimalist with shoes. One pair of boots (though I do want to get some rain boots), one pair of Danskos to wear to work, one pair of sneakers, one pair of daily-use sandals, a couple of pairs of dressy sandals. I do want to revisit my old battered shoes though. I like to have a pair as backup in case I am doing something mucky, but I don't need 3 pairs, and they're starting to get kind of grody.
