And so the festivities are over and all that holiday decor has been taken down. My inventory has expanded exponentially over the course of a few weeks from all the free stuff from hunts and advent calendars that I picked up and it’s time to face the music. Time to buckle down and tackle the task head on.
As I look inside my inventory, I feel this burgeoning heavy feeling. All those piles and piles of folders and jumble of boxes all mixed together from different events, tons of hunt items, and sales that go way back to the great black Friday sale of 2017. I call it that because I went a bit overboard with my shopping then. It all feels overwhelming, what’s a girl to do with all these crap err stuff?
Here’s three easy steps to organize that mess in your inventory!
First thing to do is to hide all that stuff inside your objects folder to give you that clean accomplished feeling. Done! Your inventory looks nice again yay!
Next. Find all the items from the same events by using filters, for example .. holiday hunt, woh4 for the women only hunt, cosmopolitan for their advent calendar gifts, ebento etc … you get my drift.
Last step. Cram all of the items from the same event into your very expensive box, item sorter, or rez a free block of wood (aka a prim) and drop all your things in there and you are done! For those dropping things in a prim box here’s a tip. Firestorm lets you drop all the items in a folder using the zdrop command.
Now if you want to go beyond the first three easy steps (its your funeral) keep on reading.
What’s left for you to do is unpack all those boxes which would once more bloat your inventory, go through them one by one. Yes, rez that house, furniture, Christmas wreaths, garlands, snowmen or trees that you don’t need anymore because Christmas is over and cram them in the right box/category. Try on those free hairs and free clothes, free jewelry, delete the ones you don’t like and if you are like me upload a photo to your wardrobe, set it up so you can wear it from your personal wardrobe site/closet and make links in your rlv folder for it to work! Easy peasy right?!!!
Does all this sound like work to you? It does for me too! So if you don’t want to go through all that trouble follow the first three steps, shop, pick up free stuff and do the same three steps all over again!
Note: I wrote a step by step tutorial on how to use the zdrop command in this post.
