Consumables (also known as consumable goods , nondurable goods , or soft goods ) are goods that, according to the 1913 edition of Webster's Dictionary , are capable of being consumed ; that may be destroyed, dissipated, wasted, or spent. John Locke specifies these as "consumable commodities." [ 1 ] Consumables are products that consumers buy recurrently , i.e., items which "get used up" or discarded. For example consumable office supplies are such products as paper , pens , file folders , post-it notes, computer disks , and toner or ink cartridges .
