Four Sims 3 Frustrations

Don't get me wrong, now. I've logged literally hundreds of hours on Sims 3 since it was released in June of 2009. And thousands of hours playing Sims 2 and The Sims before it. I love The Sims 3. (I have to say this because whenever I criticize the game, people get pretty defensive about it.) But there are a few things which have really vexed me over the months.

1. Inventory Control

As in: there isn't any. I grant you, it's convenient to be able to group together like items. Otherwise your Sim's inventory panel would be filled with 342 entries for "Apple" alone.

But surely it would be possible to create folders? Or at least group things by room or type, the way Buy Mode does?
