The Sims: Freeplay isn't as free as you think! Whenever you want something or need to buy items for a quest, the Home Store is not lenient in offering items at a low price. In fact, things become more expensive as your population increases! So, if you're stuck with less than 100k, here's a few tricks that I do to earn some cash-
1. Planting Beans
Beans are my go-to plant whenever I'm away from the game for a long while, such as at night while I sleep. Beans are fairly low priced (less than 200 simoleons) and give you about 1,260 in revenue for every 4 icons tapped. They take 9 hours, which is perfect for when you're in school, or sleeping at night. Planting beans every night for a couple weeks earned me a whooping 1mil simoleons!
4. The Simoleon Sprout
Although it take about 4hrs for you to use to again after harvesting, the Simoleon Sprout is a great way for earning a whole bunch of money in one go! Although your chances of getting all pumpkins is fairly low (trust me, it is), and the constant three different spin becomes an eyesore after a while, it's still a great way to earn loads of simoleons in a quick harvest.
3. Event Furniture
You can get lots of free stuff from event exclusive furniture during holidays or special occasions, such as a Christmas themed fireplace during Christmas. But, did you know that they're worth a bunch? All furniture in the Home Store is reduced to a very low value price when you want to sell it, but it's different for event items! So if you ever need to get rid of old holiday items, then selling them will get you a quick buck!
Make sure all your sims are employed! Sims will usually bring home 900+ simoleons after work or school, and is a great alternative to planting beans if you want to save your thumbs from tapping so much. I usually send my sims to work after they've finished planting beans. After they've all come home, that's when I catch up on quests or timed events, then at night, the cycle starts again.
5. When Enough is Enough
Once I reached 1mil simoleons, I vowed to NEVER go under that, unless I really need to! Often times, people will go crazy on spending when they've realized that they have a lot of moolah on their hands, but trust me - 1mil isn't even a lot now, especially on this game! If I'm close to 1mil after spending money on things, I'll start doing extra for more simoleons, which will add on to the revenue that I already get from planting beans and sending my sims to work. Don't go crazy on spending your hard earned simoleons, otherwise you'll just end up seeing yourself going back to square one!
6. Don't Spend on What You Don't Need!
Yes, it's tempting to buy those cool houses in the Architect Tab, or getting those luxury couches in the Home Store, but do you really need it, especially when you're pretty low on money? Of course not! Most of these items are for themed houses/getting actions quicker, but you don't necessarily need them unless you want your house to look like a million dollar mansion! You're trying to EARN money, not spend it!
I hope this helps! To me, this is a much more efficient way of getting simoleons rather than hacking or spending real money on the game (which isn't worth it!), because 1. hacking might get all your data deleted, and 2. spending so much money on a game is ridiculous!
