Hello Petals =)

I am an inveterate organiser, a prolific downloader and a lover of decorating Sim homes. I was sick to death of spending HOURS looking for just that right cabinet or vase I *KNEW* I had somewhere. I use every single one of these icons and could possibly use more but I made myself stop. The decorative section in particular gives me a real pain in the ASP - now I only use my collections (yes I HAVE put every item in a collection - sick ain't I?)

They are descriptive and each has a uniquegraphic to make flipping through collections easy and its much clearer in game than the pics. Categories are:

animals
art stuff
barstool
bathroom furniture
bathroom deco
bath towels

Unrar and put the .bmp files into your:

folder. They will appear in your collection icons!

May your organisation be swift and your frustrations be few =)

Edit: I put up a tute on how to change existing collections here

Much better than redoing huge collections!
