New World is full of items to collect, whether picked up from supply crates, harvesting resources from trees or minerals, or dropped by enemies. As such, your bags will fill quickly.
While New World doesn't operate on a 'slots' basis like other MMOs, it does have weight limits. But fear not, here's how you can increase your allowance and therefore get more space.
How to get more inventory space in New World
To increase your weight allowance, you can head to the Outfitting Station and make your own bags. Different levels allow for different weight increases.
You can also find these bags in the Trading Post, but these will be expensive. We advise crafting your own -- not only to save money, but to increase your crafting levels in the process.
It won't be easy, and it will be time-consuming in the resources you'll need to farm, but it'll definitely be worth it.
If you don't have the appropriate crafting skills, you should ask your Company members if they can craft the bag for you.

Where to find Runes of Holding
Runes of Holding can be found in the faction store.
They aren't cheap, but often the cost is a worthy trade-off against having to discard items on your travels.
Storage in Settlements
In addition, the different settlements in Aeternum have Storage Sheds you can use to dump any excess materials you don't immediately need.
However, be mindful that these sheds will not link with sheds in other settlements -- if you put a load of Wood into a shed in Brightwood, you won't be able to access it in Ebonscale, for example.
There is an exception, though -- if the two settlements belong to your faction, you can transfer the goods in exchange for gold.
Reputation increases the storage capacity of these sheds, which do have weight limits.
Some quest givers will be rather generous, awarding bags for completion.
In particular, the quest "Inspecting the Goods" given by Trader Heyn in Windward awards the Worn Traveler's Satchel.
