EASY MONEY HINTS

Easy money (1):
Enable the "Free mode" code, then go to your house and buy a lot of expensive items. After that, save then restart your system. Do not enter the code again, then sell your items back for more money. The best item to do this with is the Monkey Butler Tree, which is worth 15,000 Simoleans.
Easy money (2): Use the following trick to make the wallpaper technique faster. As you sell the sheet of wallpaper, you must hold Square and release it to complete the sale. If you press Square repeatedly after the sale, the sales keep occurring for how many times it was pressed. Also, this trick works better if the wall has an intersection in the shape of a "T".
Easy money (3): Buy a workbench and heighten your Mechanical, Creativity, and Body. Keep making Gnomes. If you have a very high status, you should be able to sell each gnome for at least 100 Simoleans. Making gnomes only take about one to two seconds each if you have a very high status.
Easy money (4): Enable the "Free mode" code, start a game, and buy fifteen Heart Hot Tubs. Note: These must be unlocked in Get A Life mode first. After buying them, save the game and quit. Turn off the PlayStation2 to disable the code. Return to the same game and sell all the Heart Hot Tubs that were bought to get up to 99,999 Simoleans. Notice that when you pay bills, buy something, etc., your money will not decrease.
Easy money (5): Make a wall parallel to the sidewalk (with the trash can and mail box). Put the most expensive wallpaper on both sides. Then, press Square to sell the wallpaper on one side. If this does not work, try the opposite side. You should be able to sell one side's wallpaper repeatedly.
Easy money (6): Enable the "Free mode" code, then move your Sims into the cheapest house available. Then, buy a lot of expensive items (such as the Monkey Butler). After this, evict your Sims from that house, but do not empty the house. By doing this, your Sims keep the "assets" that they had, which turn into money for them. The house will then cost something similar to 99,999 Simoleans. To counter this, enter build mode for the house you moved your Sims out of, then sell off the Monkey Butler and other items you put up. The house will be cheap again. Move your Sims back in and they will have a lot of money.

GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

Get A Life Chapter 1: Borrow $800 from Mom:
Go to buy mode and sell anything that is not a necessity, until you are over $800.
Life Of Crime career path: Prevent a thief from escaping in Get A Life mode to unlock the Life Of Crime career path in all modes.
Easy skills: Evict a family. When this happens, their moods go up immediately after you move into another house. Once you get in a house, study, work out, etc.
Keep child home from school: If you do not want your child to go to school and do not want to keep hearing the bus honk every few seconds, just let your child stand in the middle of the road where the bus waits everyday. Then the bus will not appear, and your child will not go to school.
Keep Major Dormo longer: Call Major Dormo, then put a fence around his tree house after he leaves it. He will remain with you much longer, but will still eventually disappear.
Change clothes faster: When a Sim puts up the curtain to change, press L1 to pause game play. They will change, but time will freeze.
Alien abduction: Buy the telescope and use it for too long. Your Sim will be abducted and disappear. It will reappear some hours later, with different stats.
Zombie Sim: Kill a Sim and wait for the Grim Reaper to appear. Plead for his or her life. The Grim Reaper will either ignore your plea, turn your Sim into a Zombie, or revive your Sim. If your Sim was revived, kill him or her again, then try again. The outcome is random. Note: Do not save the game if the Grim Reaper kills your Sim. Reload the game and try again. Zombie Sims do not have any features different from normal Sims other than a green color.
Regain needs: Skip work every other day, to the point where they call you but you will not get fired to regain your fun and social levels. While you are home, call over some friend(s) and play pool or a cooperative game.
