Never-Ending Inventory

I am engaged in a constant war with my inventory.

I try to keep it as low as I can, and although I’ve won several battles, I’m still losing the war. 😦

I recently did a big purge and I lowered my count by almost 2,000 items.

I still can’t bring myself to just delete items without even looking at them.

For instance, I know that deleting my ‘costume shoes’ folder would probably free up about 1K in inventory, but I just can’t do it.

My mind is always filled with ‘what if’s.’

What if I accidentally throw away an awesome pair?

What if I throw away a pair that would have worked perfectly for the routine I’m working on?

For the last few weeks, I’ve been slowly going through my clothing folders.

I deleted a lot of old system clothes I never really wear anymore, and I boxed up quite a few that I just can’t bear to part with, but don’t need to sit in my inventory.

In the process, I discovered that I wear way more mesh than I realized.

Really the only items that I kept that are system clothing are lingerie sets.

A burlesque dancer ALWAYS needs lingerie!

Some of the items I deleted were, quite frankly, hideous, and I have no idea why I kept them in the first place.

I took pictures of certain outfits that I liked.

I have one of those ‘wardrobe’ things that lets you take a pic of item and puts in a database so you can search through them.

After working through my system clothing, I started on mesh.

I was hoping to put together quite a few outfits with my new mesh body, but I’m finding that most (95%) of the mesh I already own doesn’t work well with the mesh body.

Although the alpha cuts are generous, they just don’t work well with low-cut, asymmetric, or strapless clothing.

I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more fitmesh clothing and clothing made specifically for the Maitreya body.

Once I’m done with mesh, I’ll start on my ‘costume’ folder.

In the meantime, I will keep pushing my rock up the hill, despite every indication that my inventory count will continue to rise.

It seems like every time I turn around, there’s a new event, a cute this-or-that I have to have, or an item I think will be a perfect prop in a routine.

A girl has to shop, right?
