The one "twink" I made on my last new character was bag upgrades. I got a full set of Netherweave bags from the start, and before I was even needing to buy my first mount I had upgraded to Frostweave bags. Yes, I had that much gold. Why? Because I wasn't DUMB ENOUGH TO VEND GREENS. If you just undercut the person ahead of you, you can still make ridiculous amounts of gold at low levels. What I do now with anything that I want to AH since I'm so far from the AH most days (level 80 and questing in Zul'drak) is mail all items I want to auction to my alt whenever I'm near a mailbox. When I'm ready to actually go to the AH, I hop on the alt and return all the mail to myself (I don't want to transfer gold back and forth, and since I only do gear shopping on the character I'm actually on so I can *easily* see what gear my character uses without an addon, I don't want to auction stuff on the alt and have a bunch of gold there).I don't bother with much sorting. I know the first bag is "crap I really need" - fishing pole, spare weapon, bandages, potions, some food. Bag two is "spillover crap I really need" and starts to turn into "quest items" - although I've made a dedicated point of dragging any usable quest item onto one of my toolbars so I don't have to bother to try and find them when I need to use them. That's saved me significant time and frustration. Bags 3-5 are a mishmash of stuff and as long as I've got 30 free spaces when I start questing I'm fine for hours.For the love of the gods of Azeroth though, don't use bag space as a reason to sell auctionable items that could make you money. I have friends who do this and as a result they're level 80s who are 3000g off being able to afford epic flying because all the gold they *do* make off dailies is going to level their gear. Ergo, questing with them sucks, ergo, I'm still soloing unless I'm forced to drag out my pathetically slow gryphon (not gonna happen). It's not so bad for getting to instances (being first and having to help summon isn't horrible) but when you're running around a zone doing a bunch of quests it does suck being the first person to get there and then having a 5 minute wait while everyone else flies there slowly.Big bags and smart selling and mailing to alts - that's the ticket right there.
