Default Answered: Storage questions....

So I want to see if I clear out items in my dock, maybe Webkinz will load faster. Plus I want to become more of a collector, so I want a place to 'hoard' all these click to win and smurf items.

I have a few questions for you people will those crazy-item-filled-docks with 5+ storage rooms.

*What is the best storage container to buy for clothing and small Webkinz items? For both the amount of storage and the price.

*Is there any container that can fit snow globes and other things that are a bit bigger?

*What size room do you suggest I put all these fridges/storage units in? Do you fill up a bunch of small rooms, or a few large rooms?

Thank you for whatever answer you can give me.

This will tell you what storage containers can carry what, as well as their price and footprints

For clothing, I use the Sky Blue Book Box since it can carry 6 items per footprint. For the price of 95 KC per Sky Blue Book Box, it comes in second as the most cost efficient storage for non food items.

I'm not sure about the snowglobes. I will try once Webkinz World works again I would think any of the non food containers will take them. The Vortex Storage unit can store 10 items. If you don't have that, you could use the Rattan Toy box, costing 100 KC and can hold 8 non food items
***EDIT*** I have logged back into Webkinz World. I have tried the Sky Blue Book Box, Rattan Toy box and the Vortex storage unit. All 3 refused to accept my snowglobes. (I tried this with the Polar Plunge holiday snow globe and Kinzville snow globe) Maybe you could have a room to showcase your snowglobes? Maybe like a snowglobe space as well as a bathroom?

I used to use small rooms (you know the ones that come with adopting new pets?) for storage, but recently, I started switching to large rooms. It might be more difficult trying to find something if you have to look through more small rooms, than only looking through a few large rooms. Also, with clothing, I try to find an item that resembles, for example, shoes. I put this item near my shoe containers so I can quickly find my shoe containers in my large room

Plus it takes so much time to change from room to room that it is quicker to have a few large rooms than many small or medium rooms.

You probably won't use all the squares in any of the rooms since you need paths to access the storage units, and I have heard that if you use all the squares it can cause problems getting the room to load correctly (sorry, I don't remember how many squares to leave open).

The Cool Colorful Fridge (New Kids theme) is the cheapest indoor food storage unit (250 KC), and the Backyard Cooler is the cheapest outside food storage unit (275 KC). Both store 6 items.

The Rattan Toy Box is the cheapest way to store items (100 KC to store 8 items) and it uses two squares. The Sky Blue Book Box is the next cheapest (95 KC to store 6 items) and it uses one square. I only use the Sky Blue Book Box in rooms where I am storing things by theme or type of item, and want it all in one room.

I haven't found anything yet that stores snow globes, so I put them on pedestals and tables to save space. Larger items I try to put on rugs so I at least get two things stored on a space.

Hmm, well the ballerina toy-box is only 150kc and holds 8 items, small toys, clothing ect...
Or the Funky Girl Toy Box for 200kc, though I would prefer the Ballerina toy-box.

Ratten toy-box, 100kc holds 8 itmes. I still prefer the Ballerina toy-box.


*Is there any container that can fit snow globes and other things that are a bit bigger?

Well, I don't think there is any that does store them acually, hold on let me check... Ballerina toy-box don't hold snowglobes, so my guess is that no storage unit will/can hold a snow globe, books and small toys, yes.

*What size room do you suggest I put all these fridges/storage units in? Do you fill up a bunch of small rooms, or a few large rooms?

Well, I just use medium rooms, my medium room has the Bloomin Room theme, I just put heaps of storage in it, running out of room though, mostly food storage though.

Hope I helped.
Thank you all so much for these extremely helpful posts. I can't decide on one, so I'll just quote them as the best answer.

Default Re: Storage questions....

I would get the rattan storage container (bamboo lookin thing) its 100 kc and stores 8 items in it. However it does take up 2 spaces... And I would fill a large room as you would get more bang for your buck on storage space!

Hi there! At the Wshop there are so many different storage things that are cheap and ready to be used for storage! Most store about 8-10 items. You can look them up in the wiki too!
