So, after playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a while, you’ve realized that your flimsy tools are just not cutting the mustard and your backpack isn’t big enough for your hoard. On top of that, you wish there was an easier way to access your tools? Not to worry, Miketendo64 has your back as we tell you how you can expand, your backpack, learn to make stronger tools and obtain the Tool wheel to boot.
First of all, you will need access to the Nook Stop machine inside the Resident Services tent (Where you find Tom Nook. Access the terminal and click on Redeem Nook Miles. It is from here that you will be able to purchase all your essential upgrades.
Using the Nook Stop Machine, go to Redeem Nook Miles and purchase an item called Tool Ring: It’s Essential! for 800 Nook Miles. This item will allow you to access a tool wheel by pressing UP on the D-Pad.

Rearranging Tools & Items
