ACNL: Rollin’ in the Dough!

I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips for making money in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. None of these are super groundbreaking, but they might be helpful for new players.

originalBellionaire Strategies

When you first start out, you won’t have access to the island until you pay your home loan. Pick every fruit and pickup every seashell you can find. Buy whichever tool is available and fish or catch bugs until you have access to the island.

Once the island is open, concentrate on the beetles that are available during the night. After 6 PM is a good time to start. You’ll quickly pick up on which get you the most bells.

You’ll also want to take advantage of the turnips that Joan sells every Sunday, as they allow you to make money at a pretty exponential rate. The best way to get a good selling price is ping your friends, or even strangers on Twitter. (#ACNL, y’all!) If you’ve got a wide enough network of friends, you’ll usually be able to get a selling price between 350-600 bells per turnip.

Perfect fruit is another good way to make money. Remember that each perfect fruit tree will die after the third round of fruit and replant accordingly. DON’T sell the perfect fruit in your own town – visit someone with a different native fruit.

Animal Crossing Update!

I’ve been waiting to share the last room of my house until now, when I can tell you that if you’re in the US, my house has been delivered to your Happy Home Showcase via SpotPass! You can get in there this week and order my furniture, make fun of my tastes or dine at the Dumpling Hut. Remember that you can favorite my house to keep it in your HHS and see any new updates I make.

And now onto my last room, which features the full Lovely set and enough pink to reduce a grown man to tears.

Animal Crossing House Tour: Redneck Room!

My basement room is affectionally referred to as the Redneck Room. Among its many luxurious features are an inflatable swimming pool complete with duckie, lawn chairs, cowhide rug, pink flamingos and a bonfire! I originally started calling it the rumpus room, but my coworkers hated it when I said that. 🙂
