Animal Crossing: New Horizons: Inventory Full? So you enlarge it

Your stock in "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" on the switch is constantly full? Don't worry, you can expand it and increase your space for collected items. You can read how to do this here.

Collect, collect, collect – and the bag is full again! "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" gives you a rather sparse inventory at the beginning with which you have to live your island life: you have 20 places, afterwards you have to throw away or sell things. However, you can get a memory upgrade early.

First inventory expansion: Buy for miles in the NookPortal

Do the first few tasks for Tom Nook and you get access to the NookPortal – that's the ATM to the right of the entrance in the tent of the Nooks. Select "Redeem Nook Miles". For 5,000 Nook miles, you can now purchase the "Use Bags Correctly" upgrade. It instantly increases your inventory by ten spaces to a total of 30.

The NookPortal has a lot of upgrades in stock.

However, you shouldn't put 5,000 miles in your pocket as soon as you have them together: Instead, pay off your loan (also 5,000 miles) with Tom Nook first. Then you get access to the "Nook Miles +" program and can earn additional miles much quicker with small additional tasks. The enlarged inventory can be saved in no time.

Do not forget!

You can also store items that you do not need constantly in your house. This way you save space in the inventory.

Second inventory expansion: available after expansion of the service center

For the second enlargement of your bag you have to play a little longer. After you helped Tom Nook settle three more residents on the island, Nook announces his new project: the service tent will be expanded into a service center. This upgrade takes a while, but afterwards you will find a new upgrade in the Nook portal: "Pocket tricks for professionals" costs 8,000 Nook miles and gives you another ten slots.

Now you have 40 item slots in your pocket – the maximum, you won't get more in the game.


  • In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, your inventory initially has 20 spaces. You can increase the number twice by ten places each.
  • You can get the "Use bags properly" upgrade very early on the NookPortal for 5,000 Nook miles. Better pay off your loan beforehand!
  • You will get the second upgrade "Pocket Tricks for Professionals" for 8,000 miles in the NookPortal after the service center has been expanded.
