To find helpers talk to the monkeys and get the relationship past 50. They like to play, rubdown and scratch. Then talk to Futo Maki.
Mission For The Mann: Saving time
When you do "Mission for the Mann", do not go to the bulletin board. Simply search the shrubbery near the museum.
Once you have gotten your bills down 40%, you can get them down even lower. If you get a roommate your bills will go down by half.
Do not pay bills
When the screen with "BUSTED pay bills next time" appears, you will go to prison. You can go to the gate and pay bills. Do not do this. Instead, you will sleep for about a day and the gate will open. By doing this you will not have to pay your bills.
To earn some extra money go to the Chop Shop and sell some of your Hogg's parts.
Buy an easel, then frame a painting and sell it to the thrift store. The paintings range from 25 to 300 Simoleons.
Buy a large workbench and get full Mechanical skill by using Heidi Shadows. Collect Petrified Wood from the bayou, and make Woodcarvings from them. Sell them to the man on the street in Urbania. Some items can be sold for 3,600 Simoleons.
Buy the large workbench and get your Mechanical skill up. Find wood and make Woodcarvings. When you think you made a good one, go to thrift store between 5:00 and 7:00 to sell them for at least 1,000 Simoleons. Then buy it back for 20 to 30 Simoleons and resell it. Do this repeatedly to earn a lot of money.
Ask people for errands. They will give you money for each one you deliver. Do not ask your roommate for an errand. They will move out, and they willnot talk to you for a day.
Put your shower in your pocket and sell it to someone. When your Hygiene level gets low, go to any sink and keep washing your hands until the level has increased. You can also sell your bed and sleep on the sofa, or sell your sofa and sleep in the bed. This will increase your Comfort.
At the beginning of the game, make your rep group a Richie. Then get at least three Xizzle Beads and go to Club Xizzle. There is an Xizzle you can get that will give you 10,000 Simoleons.
Buy an Easel at the store for 290 Simoleons. Get your creativity points all the way up and paint as many paintings as possible. Sell the paintings at the Second Looks Thrift Emporium. The paintings will range from 25 to 500 Simoleons.
Easy Popularity gain
Unlock the garbage can location from Pheobe Twiddle and put basic furnishings in it (bed, shower, fridge, etc.). Then, go into Club Xizzle next to it and talk to the people inside until you raise your Popularity. Make trips back to the garbage can to refill your needs.
Easy Rep points
Get any rival rep group member up to 100, then ask him or her to move in with you. If they do, kick them out. You will receive a rep point for that rep group's rival. Then, repeat the process. For example, a Richie lives with a Streetie. Richie kicks the Streetie out and receives a rep point for Richie. Streeties hate Richies. Richies hate Streeties. Artsies hate Nerdies. Nerdies hate Artsies.
Faster Sleep and Comfort
Get the Bamboo Double Bed from the girl on the island near Paradise Island. You will notice that when you sleep in it, your Sleep and Comfort will turn green faster than a normal bed.
Easy relationship with Ephram Earl
You need to get popularity high for three different goals. You may have seen the "Easy Popularity Gain" trick, and are talking to people in Club Xizzle. If you have been talking to him, you have difficulty being friends with Ephram Earl, the ghost. This is because Ephram Earl only likes being talked to. Trying to cheer him up, entertaining him, telling him jokes or bad puns, or even making rude gestures or insults, and crying just makes him angry. This takes away 6 points of relationship. You must talk to him. He loves to talk about anything. You will gain 2 points, but it will go quickly. If you buy the Xizzle, Jibba Jabba, it does not do anything to him.
Invite someone over (someone who is your friend or of you Rep Group recommended). If they like your place a lot they will give you a "housewarming gift". If they do not, get their relationship to 90 to 100, leave the room (they will be gone), go back, and invite them again.
