The Sims 4: Paranormal Stuff, which was released in January 2021, is pretty good as far as stuff packs go. While Bonehilda’s return received a mixed response, overall, it’s a solid pack overall – even if the paranormal is not your vibe.
Some of the gameplay can feel a bit repetitive – the Haunted House Lot Type is fun, but it gets a bit tiring after a while. But we aren’t here to give you an extensive review of the pack.
The build/buy and Create-a-Sims assets that came with The Sims 4: Paranormal Stuff are all pretty good. They blend in well with many other packs and offer some plain swatches on top of the overall boho (or is that boohoo?) feel. And, as with all Sims content, the object descriptions are quirky to boot.
If build/buy in The Sims 4 is your thing and you are still wondering whether the new Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff Pack is worth getting (it is), we have one more reason to add to the list.
One of the build/buy items that came with the pack includes clutter slots to place items inside of the cabinet. The Ghost Club Sideboard and Hutch (description below) can be cluttered on top, below, on the edge and inside. We know that clutter slots inside hutches aren’t exactly groundbreaking or new, but they are quite useful, especially for clutterbugs.
Here’s the description for the hutch: This snazzy sideboard hails from the old headquarters of one of the oldest paranormal investigation groups in the world, and still comes with a few old case journals intact!

Not all clutter items will slot into the hutch, though (not without cheats anyway), so you might have to try and fail a few times. Or, you know, you can also just use cheats. Happy building!
