How To Catalog Items

Touch Other Players' Items To Catalog Them

touch trade

You can catalog new items easily by picking up something another player dropped and putting it back on the ground. This method is sometimes called "Touch Trading" or cataloging. Once the other player's new item is in your inventory, that item will be registered in your catalog and you can purchase exactly same item in Nook Shopping!

Item Has To Be In "Leaf Form"

You can only pick up an item when it's in leaf form. Ask other players to drop items instead of placing them on the ground.
