  1. Money trees!!!!!!

Once per day, there’ll be a shiny spot on the ground that contains 1,000 bells. Reburying the bag of bells will sprout a bell tree that grows cash every few days. However, if you plant even more bells, you have a chance of growing a tree that sprouts heftier bell bags. This trick has led to me growing multiple 10,000-bell trees. To plant a larger quantity of bells, go to your pockets and click on the bell counter in the bottom left-hand corner. From there, you can choose how many bells to separate, and then select Bury in Hole to plant them.          

2. Daisy Mae and the 10 turnips

On Sundays, Daisy Mae will visit your island. She’s an adorable boar and the granddaughter of Sow Joan, whom you may have met in previous iterations of Animal Crossing. Daisy Mae sells turnips, which vary in price. You can buy in bundles of 10. You can then flip those turnips later on in the week for serious cash.

3. Time travel

There’s some contention around time-hopping, which is basically a method of manipulating the Nintendo Switch’s time and date settings to cheat time in the game. I like to play New Horizons for hours on end, so I’m pro-hopping, but some people prefer the natural unhurried pace of the game. Time-hopping helps you quickly finish building upgrades and bridges, gives you more fossils to find, and generally resets your daily tasks.

But if you time-travel recklessly, there are some risks. Your relationships with your villagers can deteriorate, your island might get overrun with weeds, and you might mess up your ability to participate in special events since they won’t begin unless you’re synced up to the internet.

To time-hop with lower risks, here’s what I do:

  1. Save your game by pressing the minus button on your left Joy-Con. Close the software by pressing the Home button and then pressing X.
  2. Navigate to the system settings menu, scroll down to System, and scroll to Date & Time.
  3. Uncheck the box that syncs your Switch’s internal clock to the internet. Move the date forward exactly one day.
  4. Reopen Animal Crossing, start the game, and then save again.
  5. Repeat steps 1 to 3, but this time check the box that syncs your in-game clock to the internet.

Your game will have advanced one day, but you won’t travel so far ahead that you risk messing up your island. Keep in mind that time-hopping rots turnips.

4 Five star rated island

To eventually reach a five-star island rating, it’ll take time and effort. You can check your island rating by speaking with Isabelle in Resident Services. Take her advice literally: if she says you need more fencing, you need more fencing. The same goes for decor. Does she say you need more decorations or more items you’ve crafted yourself? Pay close attention to the hints she gives.

You’ll need well-balanced furniture and deco items scattered throughout your island, as well as a certain amount of flowers, fencing, and trees. Be sure to pick up tree branches and weeds as soon as you see them—they drag your island rating down.

That’s all; I hope you like my tips, also this site has some awesome deets:
