Sims 4 Cottage Living: How to make money


They say money makes the world go round. The same is true for The Sims 4 Cottage Living. For example, if you want to cook a delicious pie, you need to buy flour, sugar, and other ingredients. But in order to buy these cooking ingredients, and other items, you need to have a few Simoleons in your pocket. Let’s discuss how you can make money in Cottage Living.

Best ways to make money in Sims 4 Cottage Living

You can earn money in Sims 4 Cottage Living through the following activities:

  • Catch and sell fish
  • Harvest wild berries and mushrooms
  • Run errands for the NPCs
  • Sell crops and produce at the market stalls near the pub
  • Sell oversized crops
  • Sell items to the Creature Keeper
  • Set up a market to sell items from your own farm
  • Use money cheats

Catch some fish and sell it

If you’re broke, you can travel to one of the fishing spots available in your neighborhood, catch some fish, and then sell it. As a quick reminder, Cottage Living also features a nice Water Tool that you can use to build ponds. You can then stock the ponds with fish, and you’ll have your very own fishing spot.

Harvest wild berries and mushrooms

If you go to the ruins near the Blumblewoods at 5AM and you remain on the lot until 6AM, you can harvest all sorts of wild plants that you can then sell for money. For example, you can harvest blueberries and raspberries or forage mushrooms.

Run some errands

While waiting for your crops to grow, you can run some errands. On average, you can earn around 90 Simoleons for each errand that you successfully complete. You can cash in over 150 Simoleons for certain errands as well.

Sell crops and produce at the market stalls

Go to the market stalls near the pub and sell milk, eggs, vegetables, and other produce you have in excess to make some quick money. If you wait to sell your crops and produce during a festival such as the Finchwick Fair, the stalls will pay you more money for them (around 5 to 10 percent more). Haggling successfully gives you a nice bonus as well, so don’t be afraid to use this option.

By the way, you can also sell llama wool for some nice profit. You can get 210 Simoleons from hearing llamas wool each day.

Sell overgrown crops

Overgrown crops help you cash in a lot of money. While the seeds for overgrown crops are quite expensive, the return on investment is worth the money. Pumpkins are particularly lucrative. For example, each unit of pumpkins sells for over 200 Simoleans on average.

Sell items to the Creature Keeper

If you want to sell some of the items in your inventory, one of your top options is the Creature Keeper. He’ll buy your items at nearly triple the base cost.

Set up a market to sell items from your own farm

Did you know that you can set up a market to sell  crops and produce from your farm? The best part is that you can mark up prices up to three times their normal value.

In other words, you’ll get more money than if you were setting your items to the market stalls near the pub. For example, the Golden Treat usually costs 485 Simoleons, but you can sell it for 1,455 Simoleons or three times the cost. Cool, isn’t it?

Use money cheats

The fastest way to earn money in The Sims 4 Cottage Living is through cheats. Simply put, if you’re looking for a quick way to get your hands on more Simoleons in Cottage Living, use money cheats.

Press the Ctrl, Shift and C keys to open the console. Then type testingcheats true. If you want to get 1,000 Simoleons, type rosebud. If you need more money, simply type motherlode, and you’ll get $50,000. Sweet!

How to save money in Cottage Living

You cannot breed large animals such as cows and llamas, but you can breed chicken. Place a hen and a rooster in the coop, and let them breed, so you don’t have to spend money on chicken.
