gaia_crown ha ha ha I am not organized at all!
On the other hand, I know where everything is, so it all works out.
I have to say though, when I got my Rosamund's Redemption, I used the organizer to move it with my other Sainte Ciel items and it took forever because there was more than 1000 items between the two sweatdrop
I really wish you could type what number you wanted it to be in the number part on the side, that would make organizing 123098x easier
I have everything sorted by color. It's been like that for maybe a year now, and I love it. At first I was the same as you. Not being able to find anything because the way it was I knew where everything was.
Now I know where everything is. When I get a new item I don't sort right away, though I probably should.
I keep my most used items and items I want to keep near the top and items I want to sell near the bottom...xwx it isn't overly organized though but it is good enough when I wanna sell stuff
and it helps when I wanna change my outfit cause I don't keep to look far to find my favorite items x'D
I organize by Gaia tab first, then MCs by release date, EIs by release date, REIs by release date, RIG items by release date, then all others by placement and color (keeping multiple colors of the same item together, though). I plan to move the backgrounds up under RIG items in the Items tab during my next big organization overhaul. I sort newly-acquired items into the organization scheme about once a week; putting the new items into the Storage Bin and then switching them into their new locations saves me tons of time.
Items that are incorrectly sorted by Gaia's system get lost and are never, ever used. I have a handful of pins and other accessories that are stuck in Items for some reason, so they are basically placeholders. sweatdrop
I think it's interesting to see how many people like organizing alphabetically; it would not occur to me to search for something by name instead of by color (although I do know the names of all my items).
First off I have most things in the locker, it would be much worse other wise. Then I also organize things about once a month or so (depending on how many items I got over the month).
My organization is a bit wacky bit it had to do with order in which I got things:
RIG Items (in order my type- hats, tops/torso, bottoms, accessories, so on)
Cash Shop Items
And in the case of most of this the most recent is added at the bottom of each section, or in some cases under similar items. I've been organizing it like this for so long now I just have it down I guess.
