I've been playing with my yard. It's not terraformed very well. LOL
But I'm working on it. I kinda know what i want, but finding it is the big thing. Same for the inside of the house. I saw something I liked earlier and I thought "Well, you know, I can just BUILD that." And it's true, I could. But the problem is finding the next part because while I could build it, I couldn't build it for less prims. And honestly? How hard is it to find a simple, low prim, and inexpensive votive candle with a nice flame and that isn't a light source?
Pretty damn hard.
You'd think in my inventory I'd have something, but for some reason, all the candles I own are no copy/no modify, and that is NOT going to work for me. I have some that I would love to use but because they're no modify, I cannot pull them from their stands and holders. Ridiculous.
Speaking of inventory, my friend Emerald has a massive one. So massive, in fact, that she ended up on New World Notes for it.
I understand how it happened. Sales, hunts, regular shopping, gifts, fatpacks, it all adds up. If I allowed myself to open every single box and kept every hair color or makeup or shoe color in a fatpack, I could easily surpass Emerald's number within a week. The problem is, there's no really GOOD way, if you're an avid shopper, to keep your number from soaring unless you're really really good at organizing, boxing up, deleting, or having multiple alts to shop with. Yes, I can transfer things I'm not using if it's possible to do so to Piper or Aidan [my 2 alts], but so few things are transferable anymore.
Some people in the comments were saying that having a huge inventory number is the fault of the user and we should just throw things away. Well, they can suck it, because some things I will NOT throw away. And why should we have to throw things that we paid for away just because there's not a way to place them in a storage or something of the sort?
As I mentioned when I was boxing up my ETD hair, these things hold memories for me. I have items in my inventory that were given to me by people I will never see again and I cannot get rid of them. I have things that I bought from stores that no longer exist and I cannot get rid of them. I do throw things out regularly that I am not using or that I do not want, but some things...I cannot and I will not.
If you keep a low number of items in your inventory, how do you do it? Do you just not shop? Do you not get attached to certain items? Are you really that good at putting things in boxes?
Maybe I'm just too sentimental. But if it comes down to being too sentimental and keeping things or not caring and throwing things out because nothing means anything to you, I choose my kind.
