December is here and with it comes a promise of shopping sprees. Such a flurry of  the best shopping hunts Second life has to offer with so many amazing designs and designers to chose from. It is one of the finest periods of the year to consider giving your avatar’s wardrobe a thorough makeover and to insist on stringing along your friends and/or partners. It’s a gift giving time of the year. Share your precious finds!

Three (3) major hunts are proposed to you and it is a good time to take out your shopping fingers and jump those Sims to get a head of the game.

Before you do this, here’s some sound advice in order to avoid flooding your inventory with gifts you may not have use for later, granted that the items are nearly free and designers are appreciated for their work, however being selective about what we keep insures we manage our inventory wisely.

Here are my personal rules for Hunting”

1. Preferably keep mesh items but avoid redundancy. In other words inundating your inventory with too many identical mesh template items is useless. How many textured versions of the same dress do you really need? The best coveted gifts are original mesh creations that are exclusive and for the sole use of one designer. Aim for these.

2. Hunt for shoes/boots but delete shoes/boots with invisiprims. Invisiprims are no longer in use. Keep Mesh.

3. Avoid accumulating too many “holiday” items. By next month they will clutter your inventory and be out-dated.

4. When evaluating furniture, weigh the option of prim-heavy items that you’ll probably love but are not practical and will only take up precious inventory space.

5. If being Chic is important to you. Stray away from “fur trimming” on anything.  Be choosy. When selecting fur laden items, look for quality of the fur design over quantity.

6. Delete anything with BRIGHT option that is non modifiable especially hair. You don’t want to look like a Christmas decoration year round.
