Cleaning Out Your SDB: Help for the Packrats

that you aren't even quite sure what to do with? Does your safety deposit box
really need cleaning, or are you just reading this article because it's raining
out and your trip to Mystery Island was cancelled because of the bad weather?
If you want to find out, read on!

there, I don't think I've been in there in months...
2. Take a look in your SDB. What do you see?
A. Nothing much, a little bit of food for my pets, but that's pretty much it.
B. Food, toys, stamps, gifts, wanna send me a few items? I could really use
them! I'm only -insert number of items away from avatar you are- items away
from getting the Packrat avatar!

give me something...

If you answered mostly A: Your trip to Mystery Island was cancelled, right?
Because you really didn't need this article! Your safety deposit box is in great
shape already! Keep up the good work!
If you answered mostly B: Well, you're doing okay, but your SDB still needs
cleaning. Good luck with the Packrat avatar, but maybe try to get more of your
items on your own. Please proceed to Cleaning Out Your SDB Part A.
If you answered mostly C: It sounds like your SDB is in pretty good shape.
Cleaning it out every once in a while might help to keep it more organized,
though. Please proceed to Cleaning Out Your SDB Part A.
If you answered mostly D: Why don't you go take a walk on Krawk Island? I've
heard everybody is super friendly there!
If you answered mostly E: You are the original Packrat. They even made an avatar
after you! Your SDB is in dire need of cleaning. But don't worry, I can help!
Please proceed to Cleaning Out Your SDB Part B.
Cleaning Out Your SDB Part A
Your SDB isn't in too bad of shape, and since you're saving for the Packrat
avatar you probably don't want to sell all of your items. I would look through
all the pages of your safety deposit box and take out all items you have more
than one of, making sure to leave at least one in. You can sell these for profit,
and use those nice new Neopoints to buy some items you don't already have to
add to your safety deposit box! You also may want to consider selling items
that are worth a few thousand, such as codestones and bottled faeries; one item
will do you a lot less good than the several you can buy after selling it. Good
luck with the Packrat avatar, and enjoy that nice, new, clean safety deposit
Cleaning Out Your SDB Part B
Your SDB is a mess, but there is still hope for you. I would strongly suggest
considering cleaning out many of those items. Try to get rid of all items you
have more than one of; fifteen of the same thing really isn't useful. Also,
if you aren't a battler, get rid of Battledome equipment, codestones, and bottled
faeries. Same goes with stamps, collectable cards, band memorabilia, Usuki dolls,
you get the picture. Try to keep only stuff you really need, such as food, books,
medicine, and toys for your pets. The rest of the stuff you have just takes
up space. After selling all these useless space consuming items you will finally
have enough Neopoints to go out and buy a paintbrush, and that Maraquan Draik
will finally be yours!
