Yeah, it was much easier to handle when I didn't care.

But a few years ago I became a collector! Especially after WebkinzX!

I wasn't sure if anyone would understand my WW hoarding but looks like I'm not alone. I also have a problem with selling things that someone might have missed out on. I used to accumulate lots of things for trading but since the GE isn't open to new people trading is almost non-existent.
I have feeder accounts for trading which I like to send things to. If an item is in my main dock, it's probably something I want to keep. I don't do any decorating on the feeder accounts and usually just add one pet per year. I often create rooms based on the event, such as Ms. Birdy, fall fest, apple trees, etc. I am able to find most things that way but I know there are rooms I haven't been in for a long time so I might find a few surprises.

If any clothing was retiring I usually do get more than one clothing for some of my friends in webkinz world just in case they forget to get them while they are still there and the same thing with some of the deluxe stuff. The most items I have in my dock is beds even if a pet does come with a bed I just used the bed I brought with kinzcash has were I would put the bed in there anyway.

Default Re: How much does dock hold? Spring Clean help - ideas?

Aspidistra, we must be on the same wave length! I decided that my WW accounts (3) are no fun anymore because of all my stuff in the docks and in semi-organized storage containers. Like you, I can't find stuff or it is too much trouble/time-consuming. So I'm organizing and selling and compiling a list to have Ganz delete.

Following is detail of how I set it up...I hope, not confusing! What took me the most time was deciding how to organize and what the categories should be. Maybe my organization will give you a good start and save you some thinking time!

I started with clothes and emptied all my storage containers into my dock. (I did notice that the dock gets "wonky" sometimes and doesn't show everything, but there is no rhyme or reason to it. Just be watchful.) Using Google docs spreadsheet (it's free and easy), I set up a separate sheet and a separate large room for what turned out to be 10 rooms/categories (see my list below). I listed the name of each clothing item under it's appropriate category. After the column listing the clothing name, I had a column for each of my 3 accounts to put the quantity in. So for each item, I would put the number that I decided to store in a bin followed by the number of extras. That way, when I was done, I could send extras to an account that didn't have any at all or I could send to friends or I could sell.

Within each room, I put the clothes in bins in the same order as listed on the spreadsheet, and separated the sub-categories by starting a new row of bins or leaving a couple of spaces between bins. That way, I can refer to my spreadsheet to "see" what each section within a room contains.

Here are my 10 rooms/categories and subcategories:

1. Bottoms, Dresses -- pants; skirts; shorts; dresses; jumpsuit/2-piece
2. Tops -- shirts/blouses/tops; tank tops; hoodies; vests; sweaters; coats/blazers/jackets
3. Hats -- cold-weather; earmuffs; "dangle" toque-type hats; warm-weather; bows, tiaras, crowns, headbands; wigs; baseball caps, visors; oddball hats; hat/t-shirt matching; everything else hats
4. Shoes, Glasses, Belts
5. Rainwear, Sleepwear, Swimwear
6. Holidays -- Valentine's; St Patrick's; Easter/Spring; 4th of July; Thanksgiving/Fall; Halloween masks/face paint/hats; Halloween costumes
7. Christmas -- hats; shoes; santa & mrs outfits; sleepwear; outfits; glasses; sweaters
8. Outfits #1 -- girls; boys; everyone
9. Outfits #2 -- occupations; outdoor hobbies; skates/outfits; Kinzville characters
10. Outfits #3 -- fantasy/make believe; fairies/dwarves; sports; academies/school

See, that's where the ones of us who came before had a distinct advantage. Especially when we became gifted. Many of us kept our items on a spreadsheet with the room and account they were in. It made it easier to locate for effective trading.
The really good part about my page was that we could post our rooms and it was a lot easier to inventory those items, then, too.
I'm not saying I am organized by any means and I sure wouldn't be able to tell you where an item is, now. But back when both of those were working, it sure made it a lot easier to locate stuff.

You all are great! It is so much fun having friends that are crazy enough about Webkinz to put so much time and thought to it all!

The one thing I've always wished for is some way to put a note on a dresser or storage cabinet to say what is in it. But spreadsheets are a good idea, too. I have found that I am more likely to dress my pet with clothes that I find in my dock. I don't usually go searching through organizers unless I'm creating a themed room and need a certain costume.

I have made lists before of what is in each room and in each specific cabinet (not on my main account, though), especially when we had limited dock capacity. My only problem is that when I take something out, I'm terrible about returning it and keeping up with any changes on my list.

Sometimes I feel badly about not collecting food. My dd's philosophy is to not care about food and she wants it all out of her dock. But then I know people who collect food and then I want to save it to give away to those who are looking for specifics. In reality, though, that doesn't really happen unless I'm on a site where trade talk is allowed. So sometimes, I think I just need to do what is best for me.

Oh, I should add that I'm most grateful for the ability to name my rooms! It was terrible when we were not able to do that. But now I can label a room "Halloween Costumes" or whatever.
