I’m not sure why spring gets all the credit for cleaning when each season deserves a thorough organizing session. Sometimes we let things slide for a little too long, and next thing you know, you’re late to the party and only wearing one shoe. It happens, and when it does, it’s time to talk about inventory management. As someone who may or may not lose my keys somewhere in my house, room, or even purse (Why would I put it in that pocket? I never use that pocket. Oh, it’s in that pocket.) almost everyday, I found organizing my virtual closet to be crucial. You can see above that I have broken down clothing into many categories. For the moment I’m including shoes and hair, but might need to make those their own folders as time goes on and I accidentally buy more 11-inch heels. Something casual, y’know? Before you begin, I suggest assessing your belongings to determine the major categories you want to start with and working your way down. Inworld hobbies can be important things to consider here. Do you have a truckload of dj gear, or props for photography projects? If you feel your surfboards need to be alphabetized, this is a judgment free zone. Do what works for you. Harlow Heslop has a fantastic video tutorial with detailed sections on creating folders, body parts, clothing, home and garden, and more. She actually suggests going somewhere safe where you can take all your belongings out. Visualizing things is a great way to get started. If you’d like written directions to follow along with, Lady Ellen T has compiled an in depth instruction guide on organizing your things as well. She stresses the importance of folders and how many items warrant the creation of subfolders, as it’s important to not go overboard if you want to find things easily. Don’t forget, if you’re really stumped, you can always look for an item by name in the top search bar. For those who want to go a little deeper, we have a tutorial playlist covering a variety of topics for all your SL needs.
In my constant quest to wrangle my inventory I thought I'd make a bunch of sub-folders for different types of dress. Although you can find lists of dress types they're not always super helpful when applied to what I own. I'm not always sure what defines each type of dress, and there's a lot of weird structural styles that I don't have words for. I eventually went with broader situational categories- historical dresses, costume dresses, casual dresses...but now about 75% of my dresses are in the 'bar and club' folder (which originally had a more blunt name). So I'm reconsidering the way I organize. Anyone got any tips?
