List of Contents
When you walk around your island, you might find an item on the ground, called a Lost Item. Upon picking it up, you can return it to its owner within the day.
The lost item could be in the form of a book or a drawstring bag.
|1||Find and pick up Lost Item.|
|2||Investigate Lost Item from your pockets.|
|3||Talk to villagers and ask if they lost something.|
|4||Return the lost item to receive your reward!|
Pick up the Lost Item by pressing A when coming across it.
Open your inventory and select the Lost Item. A selection will appear. Choose to Investigate lost item to discover more information about the item.
The information might help you out in identifying who the lost item belongs to. Don't worry about picking the wrong villager, though! Your neighbours will tell you who it belongs to if you guessed wrong in the first try.
Give the lost item to the villager. They'll give you a reward in return!
Upon carrying lost items, you can talk to residents and have the option to ask them whether the lost item is theirs and return it to them.
Even if you ask the wrong resident, they will tell you who the owner is.
If you do not return the item within the day, the next day, the "Lost item" will turn into "What was this again?", and you won't be able to return it to its owner anymore.
The only choice you have is to get rid of it.
You can choose to sell it at Nook's Cranny, but since it will now be considered as trash, it will be disposed of for free.
If you have a trash can, you can also throw away the lost item there for free.
