How to Increase Inventory Space | ACNH - Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Switch)

This is a guide to getting more inventory space in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) for the Nintendo Switch. Learn how to add more spaces to your inventory with the Pocket Organization Guide, and organize and store your items.

How to Increase Inventory Space

Buy the Pocket Organization Guide

Pocket Organization Guide

When you want to simply increase your inventory space permanently, you can spend 5,000 Miles to purchase the Item Pocket Organization Guide from the Nook Stop in Resident Services. This increases your inventory permanently by 10 spaces.

Upgrade the Pocket Organization Guide

Later in the game, another Pocket Organization Guide will be available for 8,000 Miles. This might take some saving up, so be sure to get your Miles ready when you want to purchase this item.

How to Keep your Inventory Clean

Upgrade Your Tent to a House to Unlock Storage

The easiest way to keep your inventory organized is to store them in your house. If you're still living in a Tent, this feature will not be unlocked yet, so be sure to upgrade your tent to a House as soon as possible to start storing items.

What Should You Do on the First Day?

Leave Items Outside

In New Horizons, you can leave your Furniture outside of your house. This is good for keeping your inventory space down, and if you place them with an eye for style, onlookers might see them as a nice touch.

Considering Selling Items

If you're all full of items, you can sell these in Nook's Cranny when it has been unlocked, or at Resident Services before unlocking Nook's Cranny. Selling Items, especially expensive goods like Furniture, can help pay back your initial loans.

Bury Items in the Ground

As a last resort, it's possible to bury items underground. If it's a rare item you don't want to sell, and can't store in your house for some reason, seal your items in the heart of the earth. They won't disappear, but be sure to remember where they are if you want these items to see the light of day again.
