You can re-use your potting soil. I like to add a little fresh potting soil (about one-quarter fresh to three-quarters old potting soil), mix it together and then moisten it thoroughly before using. The addition of the new potting soil helps improve the texture of the old - and it ramps up the nutrients a little. Best wishes with your garden!
