It's really annoying when your shaking a tree, praying for money, and bees come out instead. But, if you catch them, they're worth a nice 2500 bells, and the honeycombs are worth 500. First run away from the bees. A once they're a little bit behind you press the x button. Grab the net. They can't sting you when you're in your inventory. Then, when ..

Ok, so I figured out a way to get Easy money in Animal crossing. What You have to do is go to the island after 9:00 p.m., and get a net from Lloid. Next, You have to catch as many bugs as you can.

By doing this, you can get as much tropical fruit (fruit that only grows on the island, such as lemons or bananas) as you like, without needing to plant any trees or do any time travel. Firstly, get to the island. Go on a tour, normally I find the bug catching ones or diving ones best for this. If you want flowers instead of fruit, go to the garden..

Hate paying 400 bells for medicine everyday? Here's a trick to avoid the bees. When the beehive falls quickly run into a building or a resident's home! They won't be waiting for you outside! Or you could try catching it, but it's unlikely you'll succeed!..

Ok, to start out, plant as many fruit trees as possible. It doesn't matter what kind, but basically make an orchard, the bigger the better, but don't overrun your whole town with trees. If you are using multiple types of fruit, plant the same kind of fruits with each other, (pears next to pears, oranges next to oranges, etc) this will make them eas..

From: Friend Of K.K.

Sell fruit. Plant an orchard (20-40 trees, the more the better) and sell all the fruit in baskets. Exotic fruits, or any fruits that aren't your home fruit, sell for much more money, so keep that in mind. I've made up to 30,000 bells in one inventory full of baskets. Shake trees. Money or furniture pops out of some trees when shaken. Other players...
