If you’re having trouble expanding your inventory of items from furniture to wallpaper and everything in between, it’s worth learning how to catalog items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Using the catalog system is completely free and requires nothing more than a bit of cleanup time after you're done taking things out of your home or inventory.

To elaborate, when you visit a friend's island, you can ask them to pick up items in their home and/or or pull them out of their inventory. With these items on hand, they can bring them to an open area outside and drop them on the ground. To catalog them, simply pick up these items, locate them in your inventory, and then drop them back on the ground to return them to your friend.

The sheer act of picking up items in this manner will catalog them and send them to your own Nook Shopping inventory back on your island. By using the catalog system, you’ll be able to dramatically increase the rate at which items become available to you as you’ll be able to collect unique items that your friends have unlocked.

If you want to give an item to someone to catalog, again, all you need to do is pull it out of your home or inventory, take it to an open area, and drop it on the ground. Have them pick up the item, then make sure they drop it back on the ground and return it to you. After they’re done picking things up and putting them back, all of those items will be available for purchase via the Nook Shopping option in their Nook Stop Terminal.
