Assuming no other expansion packs, this is a side-effect of having too many items in the game, especially on the building side, as the original Sims game was never built to cope with lots of custom content as it wasn't expected to take off in the way it did.

The solutions are either to pop out and buy Deluxe, or remove all the extra downloads bar the one(s) you actually want to use.

Now you tell me.

Build item limits were upped to 2000 from Unleashed onwards (and user objcets to 65000 with Livin' Large) so still the solution is to remove the stuff you have no intention of using or pop out for Unleashed.
