Fastest Way To Throw Out Items In ACNH - Make Room For New Items

1. Selling unwanted items in your dropbox outside of Nook's Cranny

The most common and the slowest way you can delete items in ACNH to get more storage space is by selling them in your dropbox outside of Nook's Cranny. Timmy and Tommy are eager to take your crap off your hands and even pay you for it. But since you must go into your house to access your home storage, this running back and forth can become tedious. If you think ahead, you can grab two warp pipes and place one outside the dropbox and one inside your home, then you can just pop back and forth to grab more items to sell. But this still involves a long loading screen and if your mission is to throw out items, this will not cut it. 


However, Nintendo did give us a present in the 2.0 update, the introduction of the almighty storage shed, this item type lets you access your home storage from anywhere, it's pretty game changing as your storage is no longer confined by the boundaries of your house. This item eliminates entirely having to go into your house to get anything you want out of your storage and this is great for deleting items fast ACNH. Then all you have to do is place a storage shed outside your Nook's Cranny, then do a little jog over to your dropbox and you've just get rid of unwanted items ACNH in a matter of seconds. 


If you want to get your own storage shed, head into resident services and visit the nook stop. From the nook mile menu, you'll scroll down to find the storage shed for 6,000 miles, there's also a wooden storage shed item you can obtain by purchasing its DIY from your nook stop for 6,000 miles. And once you have the DIY, it requires 30 pieces of wood, hardwood and soft wood and 10 iron nuggets to craft it, but it's 100% worth it for the time you'll save. These sheds will only appear for you to buy after you've paid 500,000 bells to upgrade your home store to Tom Nook, but there's even a faster way to delete items. 


2. Selling unwanted items in your dropbox outside of Nook's Cranny

The dropbox is great if you want to get rid of unwanted items in ACNH and make a profit from it. But the next day you will need to wait through a cutscene where Tommy calls you and lets you know how many bells you've made, so if you want speed, here’s the introduction to the trash can.


The trash can is a powerful item in Animal Crossing and with that power, it's also highly dangerous. With this item, you can use it to throw away and delete your items out of existence, all you have to do is step up to it and press “A”. Then select your items and they will be gone forever. You will never be able to recover your items once you throw them in a trash can, so you must be careful with it.


How to get a trash can? 

If you want your own trash can, you can get them using a few different ways:

  • First, you can buy one at the Nook Stop for 1000 of miles.

  • You can also craft a wooden waste bin if you have the DIY.

  • You can purchase the garbage pail, garbage can, garbage bin and raton waste bin from Nook's Cranny. 

Once you have your garbage can, now you have your storage shed and now you have the building blocks to build the ultimate item deletion machine. All you need to do is place the storage shed in front of you and the trash can behind you and you don't even have to walk to throw out items from your storage, face the storage head, grab what you want, face the trash can, throw it out and boom. This is the fastest way to throw out unwanted items in Animal Crossing to get more storage space and will save you a lot of time if you're in the process of dehording. 


This is the exact method to clean up your storage and it can save you so many hours of time and then you can go buy more ACNH 2.0 items with your millions of AC bells
