Pedle ZelnipAs mentioned (rather rudely) by Delow317, the textual guide above is missing items. I didn't go through the entire list compared to the video, but I did notice three items missing from the textual list:

Cardboard Box (you can get one in the same area as the power drill/garbage bag/etc)
Handbag (can get one in Casual Gals in Royal Flush Plaza)
Hangar (can get one in Casual Gals in Royal Flush Plaza)

wells ZeGreat video! It popped after the comic trophy. I didn't notice the newspaper or shopping valuables in the video, but I am not sure if they count of not.

HAMbidextrous1I think someone needs a nap. I looked through the available guides and chose to use this one, BEFORE reading the comments. It seemed to have the necessary info plus a vid to fall back on. Only used the text, no vid. Nice guide Batman. I missed the military cases in 5-2.

KMetalmindThanks for the video!! I had to do it twice because the video I was using (some other) didn´t have the Ply Wood!! ò_o I can confirm the list on the video is completed, or at least it had all the items I was left to use :P

You don´t need to throw them, just to use them with "X" button, except maybe the utility car, which can´t be used that way :P

Bigjimboski80The guide is good, the game is just very buggy. I joined my cousins co-op game and we went through the written guide together. The achievement popped for him with no problem, but i didn't get it. I went through it again in single player using the same save file and using the video guide this time. The achievement popped when i was ten away from finishing the guide.

Wicked JeiThe frying pan does not count if it's heated. I followed several guides together and was baffled when my achievement did not unlock, then read a post on x360a where someone had it unlock when they used the regular frying pan. I went and tried it and sure enough the achievement popped. I had used the heated frying pan 3 times before...

IUHoosiers323Never really got an answer if this could be done in multiple play throughs, but it popped for me after the stupid comedy trophy.

GodLike499Thanx for the guide; couldn't've done it without it; however, I would recommend removing most of the items that you have for the safehouse, and list alternate locations for them, since it's kinda time consuming to run back and forth from the safe house to where the zombies are, especially for the larger items that you can't store in your inventory

Moozipan CheeseUsed the list and didn't get it :(

EDIT: Went through the Dead Rising wiki's article on this achievement and sure enough, I missed the bloody mannequins, which are listed here! So the text list is indeed complete, even if it could have been a lot clearer at times.
