You’re going to be picking up a lot of stuff in Animal Crossing New Horizons as you venture to distant lands and also pull up roughly 1000 weeds on your own island. In the early goings, your inventory space is going to be a real source of annoyance, it filling up super quickly with all of your tools taking up a lot of room.

Luckily, there’s an upgrade you can buy that can expand your inventory space and make your item juggling much less of an issue.

Early on into island life, you can venture on over to Resident Services (the green tent in the plaza) and then use a computer terminal to redeem your Nook Miles. Here’s where you can purchase the Pocket Organization Guide for 5000 Miles, which is not nearly as bad as it sounds.

You can very easily farm up the necessary Miles by going about your day-to-day life in New Horizons and doing new things, and even doing old things over and over again — you actually earn Miles for dropping your balloon present into the water, like we regrettably did.

It’s very worthwhile saving up for the Pocket Organization Guide as it almost doubles the amount of stuff you can carry at once, though it’s unfortunately never quite enough. Don’t forget that you can also store items in your house after you upgrade it from a tent by pressing right on the d-pad.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to lug stuff around, you can place plenty of items outside and they will remain there, albeit untidily. Some dropped items will disappear, but then turn up in the recycling box at Resident Services.

Animal Crossing New Horizons is out now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
