Dropping items in Stardew Valley might seem like a trivial task, but it’s important if you want to manage your inventory well. In this guide, we will take you through how to drop items in Stardew Valley on PC, mobile, and console.

While it is relatively easy to trash items, I mean there is a trash can right in your inventory, but there is always the option to drop things onto the ground. You can pick them up later when you’re done arranging your inventory.

Without further ado, let’s find out how you can drop items in Stardew Valley!

Stardew Valley – how to drop items 

You will have the option to drop items on all platforms. On a PC or Mac, press E to access your inventory. Click on the item you want to drop to pick it up. Then, click outside your inventory on the right side, above the trashcan, to drop the item. The item will be placed directly on the ground next to you.

If you’re on a mobile device, tap the 3 bars to access your inventory. Long drag the item you want to drop to the bottom right of your inventory, over your funds. Letting go of the item there will drop it.

On the console (Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch), you need to turn off controller-style menus to drop items. Open your menu, scroll to the options tab, and uncheck the “Use Controller Style Menus” box.

When you drop items in Stardew Valley, remember to have something else in your inventory to fill the space. Otherwise, the dropped items might return to your inventory because of the magnet radius. Also, make sure to pick up items that you need within a day or two, or they will despawn or be lost forever.
