Storage is important in the world of Garden Paws, where collecting items is an essential part of gameplay. Without a place to put all of the items the you gather, you would quickly run out of inventory space.

Thankfully there are many storage items available over the course of the game.

Most storage items in the game are craftable, though some crafting recipes must be unlocked through quests or Blueprints. Other storage items can be purchased from shopkeepers or received as quest or minigame rewards.

Types of Storage ItemsEdit

Storage items fall into four broad categories: General, Display, Limited, and Decorative.

General StorageEdit

General storage items are recognizable storage objects that are capable of storing any kind of item in the game.

The following items seem like they might have limited storage based on their names and how they look, but they can in fact hold any items in the game:

Decorative StorageEdit

Decorative storage covers all the storage items that don't seem to be storage items at first. They either blend in as decorations, or are not immediately obvious as containers.

Auto DepositEdit

There is a useful feature in the game called "Auto Deposit". If you are near a storage container that has items inside, pressing "F" will dump any of those same items from your inventory right into the chest, without having to open the chest.

This makes sorting items and decluttering your inventory much faster.

Auto deposit will only work if at least 1 of that same item is already in that storage container.

Unexpected Autodeposit BenefitsEdit

It is currently possibly to use Autodeposit on habitats with "collector" animals, assuming there is at least 1 of the target items already in the habitat. Ferret Habitats can accept Wool, Delicate Fur, or Alpaca Fiber from your inventory. Dung Beetle Habitats can accept Poop, Gold Poop, Rainbow Poop, and Basic Fertilizer. The Robot Box can accept more of any item that is already being stored.

Container OverwritingEdit

The problem: Sometimes if two of the same type of storage containers occupy the same space (touching or overlapping), an overwrite can happen where the contents of box X get copied into box Y, replacing whatever was in box Y.

The replacement is permanent, so any items lost will not be retrievable unless you restore a previous save file from before the overwrite happened. But the restore option is only possible if you have not played past the 10-day save backup window.

Why this happens: Each container type has an ID dependent on the container itself, not its contents. So if 2 or more are sharing the same space, the game gets confused about which one is actually in that spot, or thinks both are the same item, hence the overwriting.

Currently the only way to prevent this is to make sure you don't have multiples of the same storage item (2 gem crates, 2 sheds, etc) too close or overlapping.


  • Empty all containers before moving them or placing similar ones nearby, and only put the items back when the containers are in the positions you want.
  • To be absolutely certain, keep the containers empty and sleep or pass out to save the day, and put the items back in the morning.

Auto Deposit with Apiary/Butterfly GardenEdit

  • Using Auto Deposit on a full Apiary or Butterfly Garden when Bottled Bees or Bottled Butterflies are in your inventory causes the respective bottles to disappear into the habitat despite it being full. The lost bottles are not retrievable without restoring a saved game.
  • Using Auto Deposit on an Apiary or Butterfly Garden that has 1 or more empty bottle slots will place an entire stack of the respective bottles into the first empty slot instead of 1 per slot. The stack may not be retrievable without restoring a saved game.
