Hey Lifey Babes, this is your girl Monique coming to you with Second Life’s hot topics about culture, gossip and style. 

I love shopping, especially during the weekend. But after a shopping spree and receiving gifts from secret admirers, inventories start to get super cluttered and confusing. But don’t worry, I’m here to help. Here are my 6 top tips for organizing your inventory. 


Before I start any shopping trip, I always make sure I have all of my folders created so when I start to organize everything, they already have a home. All I have to do is drag my new folders to their home and things already are in order. 

Here are a few of my categories for everything in my closet! 


I like using symbols to separate my categories. These symbols create groupings and things become much easier to find and organize. 

The “#” is for anything to do with my body parts. 

The “$” symbol for all of my beauty products. 

The “**” symbol for all of my clothing items. 


When shopping on SL, the number one rule before buying any outfit is to always try the Demo. 

Whether you buy the outfit or not, it is easy for the demos to mix in with regular purchased objects and it creates a jumbled mess.

The Tip: Every time you change back into your regular outfit, go to the “Recent” tab on your Inventory, right click and “Delete” the Demos immediately. This good habit will save you time when you have to organize objects you actually want to keep. 



There are two great ways you can unpack your hauls. 

The first one is to unpack your objects as soon as you buy them. But my favorite way is to unpack everything right after the end of my shopping spree or at least the next time I log on. 

This way what I bought is fresh in my mind of what the object looks like. Usually, if I wait too long to organize the objects, I forget what I bought and I will have to add it to my body to see what it is. This creates an annoying extra step for organization. So, the fresher it is in your mind, the easier it is to organize. 


I was so happy when I found out this amazing tip. What I do is use multiple inventory windows at once. 

You go to the bottom left of your inventory window, hit the gear symbol and the top of the tab it will say “New Inventory Window”. Now you will have two identical inventory windows. I use this feature for mainly two things: 

The first is when unpacking my purchases, I use the first window to look at my unpacked “Objects” list while I use the second inventory window to look at everything on my “Recent” tab. As I unpack, I make sure everything I unpack corresponds with my Recent Tab. It works great ! 

This is useful because it makes sure in the rush of unpacking, everything you spent your good hard Lindens on gets is ready to use.


My second favorite function of the double open inventory windows trick is when there is a long list of unpacked items, sometimes when moving folders objects around they go into the wrong folder. It is much easier to move items from one inventory tab to the other. 


An inventory is something very personal. My final tip is never be afraid to give objects in your inventory a nickname folder so you can quickly recall what something looks like. 

Here is an example: 

This hair is from FAGA called Daria, but I won't easily remember what the hairstyle looks like based on its original name. Instead, I call it “Cerci Low Westeros” because in the popular show Game of Thrones, the actress Leah Headley wears it often in the first few seasons for her character Cerci. So as soon as I read that folder, I know exactly what it is. You can use this trick for almost anything, and it works! 


Here is my final tip and maybe the most important one. Inventory organization does not have to be done all at once, but rather it can become a filler of time. I will explain what I mean. 

Most come on Second Life to connect with people and to have fun, but there can be time gaps in between those fun times and that’s when you tackle your inventory. 

Let’s look at a few common scenarios: 

You and your friend are typing, but suddenly they type “BRB” in the chat. You are waiting for a teleport to the latest event, but it’s taking a little while. The person talking in voice is boring you to tears or they are just super annoying. 

These are all excellent examples of scenarios where you can click into your inventory and organize a few items. You may only get one or two done, but keep up with this good habit and before you know it your inventory will be perfectly organized. Plus, it is less overwhelming just to do a few things at a time. 


Inventories can get confusing and overwhelming, but hopefully some of my tips will be helpful.

Clean Up Holiday Hits Second Life Again - LadyLoveDr Reporting- November 1-November 7th

Welcome to Second Life's traditional clean up holiday!  This tradition was started by Alpha Zaius on the teen grid.  This young guy decided that he had so much junk that he would have to make a holiday out of it.  Every year from November 1st through November 7th, second lifers everywhere are calling in sick to take time out of their busy lives to purge their inventory.  Out with the old and in with the new!

If you're anything like me, you look at your inventory and are completely overwhelmed at the amount of items you've managed to collect over a short period of time.  Then there's the fact that I click on the free items even though I won't use them.  You never know, you might see me on a future episode of "Second Life Hoarders, Buried Alive".  I've collected some tips for doing the dirty work.  Let's get started!

Step 1:  Go to your own land, or a public sandbox if you don't have a place of your own to go.  If your land doesn't allow a large amount of prims you might head on over to the sandbox anyway.  I chose to use the SkyBeam Sandbox because they have 6 levels to choose from and it is easier to find a non crowded level.

Step 2:  Right-click the My Inventory folder and select New Folder.  Name this "TEMP" folder.  Move items's you need to categorize into this folder for sorting.  Do this for clothing, notecards, textures, objects, and so on; one at a time.  Be sure to delete duplicated items along the way.  Drag a bunch of stuff to the ground around you so you can see what it is.  This will make it easier to categorize.  Anything you don't want you can simply throw away.  But remember, any item that is transferable you can yard-sale or visit a place like Auction Wars.  For this I recommend making a folder titled "Yard-Sale" or "Auction Wars".  After finishing right-click on the trash listing and select to "empty trash". 

Step 3:  Archiving is the best way to lower your inventory count, thus making it faster to load.  This is also known as cube-stuffing.  You build a prim (you can use a cube, sphere, anything you want) then edit it, go to the "contents" tab and drag items into it.  I would recommend categorizing your items.  For example, don't put clothes in with the furniture.  This will make it harder to sort through when you need to look for something.  Afterward click on the "general" tab and name your prim something you'll recognize like:  Halloween, Shirts, Furniture, etc.

If you want to go a step further and you own your own land that you know you're not going to lose, you may place those prims on the land itself.  Think of this like a storage unit so you don't have to lug all that stuff around.  Warnings and advisories:  If you put one no copy object in a box it will make the box no copy. No copy items can sometimes fail to rez in world and be lost forever.  Do this at your own risk.  Also, If you have more than 1024 scripts total  inside the box, the system will not allow the item to rez.

You could also make your life easier by grabbing an inventory organizer from the marketplace.  I have placed 6 FREE storage containers on the SL Enquirer Media Grounds  to help.   They have hover text over them, but you can edit the script to make it anything you'd like.  I've included instructions in the script to help you. A great item to pick up at the marketplace is a texture organizer, those really come in handy!  What are you waiting for, get organized!

Change is Good – Even in Second Life- Linda Lauren Reporting...

Change something in your environment and watch how much that single change will uplift your personal vibration, boost your energy and improve your mood.  We don’t realize how much that overflowing Inventory that holds our possessions can block our ability to enjoy a Second Life existence without frustration, lag and system crashes.  Possessing an excessive inventory is the contributing reason to all of the above complaints.  

Torley Linden has a really cute video called “Confessions of a Second Life Hoarder” and though it’s exceptionally funny, there is truth to it!  A clean inventory will make for a happier Second Life experience.  To see the video and read the step-by-step tutorial click here:

All those freebees we get as we teleport across the grid can add a substantial amount of prim and/or scripts. Regular clean up is the answer.  As an SL paying resident since 2006, here are some of the tips I’ve picked up along the way:
