Normally it is best to use fresh soil in pots. In a garden you would want to rotate crops to avoid a build-up of pathogens causing disease and pest damage.
You might consider re-using the soil for flowers and herbs, or at least create a 3-year rotation in the pots (tomatoes or peppers in year 1, cucumbers or squash in year 2, salad greens or peas & beans in year 3.)
For vegetables, potting soil can be enriched with about 25% well-aged compost or manure. Feed your plants occasionally with a liquid fish emulsion or compost tea.
