Your island has two storage spaces:
Windmill Storage holds all harvested crops and special event items (e.g. wrapping paper, pumpkins, buckets of sand). Current maximum size is 1,010 storage slots (with storage upgrade pieces) and 2,860 (including all level-up rewards).
1) Measures your current storage capacity (this picture shows 36 out of 50 storage slots are filled).
2) Displays your stored items and their quantity.
3) Displays resources needed to increase storage space.
4) Tap to increase storage space (once resources or gems are available). Different resources are required for each of the storage spaces, and more resources are required each time you increase your storage
It’s always a good idea to monitor your storage space to see what you can fit. Remember to upgrade when necessary!
