After 3 months of trying things on, sorting, boxing, and deleting, I’m finally done with my inventory cleaning project!
It’s amazing how much stuff you can accumulate in 6 years. 😛
When I first started, I was hoping to delete/box enough stuff to get my inventory count under 30K.
While I wasn’t as successful as I had hoped, my inventory count is currently sitting at 31,066.
Partially because I’m a shopaholic, so I’ve continued to accumulate things as I was getting rid of them!
I’m pretty happy with my clothing and costume folders now.
I’ve sorted things into folders that make sense (to me) so I can find things, and I’ve gotten rid of a bunch of items that have never seen the light of day.
Clothes I never wore, furniture I’ve never used, shoes with invisiprims – all gone.
I’m even considering (gasp!) getting rid of some of my old N-Core shoes – the ones with the mesh feet built-in.
I love N-Core, but once I tried the Slink feet and then got my Maitreya body – well, I only buy shoes for the Maitreya feet anymore.
However, N-Core has started making shoes for the Maitreya feet, so I rejoined the group since I now have 60 group slots. 😀
If I do get rid of my old N-Core shoes, that might get me under the 30K goal.
I also got rid of a ton of skins I’d picked up from here, there, and everywhere that I never wore (I think somewhere around 100+ skins?).
It did get tedious towards the end, trying on everything and making decisions.
I found myself sometimes just looking at the ‘acquired’ date and making decisions based on that.
I figured if I got in 2010, have never worn it, and/or have no idea what it is/does/looks like, I probably didn’t need to hang on to it. 😛
I even considered doing some wholesale folder deletions, as my friend Nai recommended, but I just couldn’t do it.
Maybe someday, when/if mesh rezzing isn’t such an issue for some, I will make some room by deleting system clothing or non-mesh items.
For now, I’m hanging on to them.
I’ll have to figure out some other way to get down to 30K.
Stop shopping, maybe?
