    Is there a way to buy a bigger bag for items in Skyrim? I have looked around and can't see any. I get a bit fed up of having to discard items when in a cave as carrying to much. 300 from the start seems a bit low now I am level 10.
    Thanks

    When I first started every time I leveled I was given 3 choices to boost, Magicka, Health & Stamina. I boosted up Stamina until it hit 300, which gave me a total carrying capacity of 400, then I started on the other 2. But why keep everything, I sell most of it & only keep what I really need until I buy a house.

    No, but a follower will carry things. It is their main purpose for me.

    Little trick I picked up from another forumer (apologies, I forget who) - if your follower is refusing to take any more loot from you because they're full, you can drop the item(s), put your follower in Command mode, and then instruct them to pick up the items from the floor. This allows you to 'overload' your followers, but it doesn't affect their movement speed or anything.

    One thing to watch out for, though, is that if you drop a stack of more than 5 items (so that when you drop it, it asks 'How many?') and then ask your follower to pick up the stack (which spawns as one item), they sometimes will only get one of the item and the rest will vanish.

    Interesting trick, going to have to remember that.

    I wish the horses had "saddlebags" that could be opened to carry things.

    I keep my horse close by so that if my companion can't carry anymore and I have to much, I can get on the horse and fast track to wherever I want to go. (Once on the horse your light as a feather) I have a house in Whiterun so I go there and my companion and I land by the smithy and I start selling there. There is the "Steed Stone" too that will give you 100 extra carrying capacity.
