how to cure a resident with no medicine
When a resident is ill you usually have to buy him/her medicine for about 3-4 days but you don't have to do that. All you do is open the town gate and leave it open and the animal is cured!
More Money With One Coconut
When you find a coconut, you can sell it to Tom Nook for 500 bells, but you can also bury the coconut to grow a coconut tree which grows two coconuts that you can shake down sell and they will regrow on the tree.
safe = light brown

If you turned your game off without saving last time you played, DON'T PRESS CONTINUE!!!! At the title screen, click new resident and make one willy-nilly. Then save and exit after that and continue with the character that didn't save. Mr. Reseti won't bother you!! anytime you don't save when you turn your game off, continue as the willy-nilly character. :)
Four Leaf Clover
When you have a mushroom, leave it if you want a four leaf clover. You will have a lot of weeds to pull, but anyway, when you find the gray three leaf clovers pick them. Among them is a four leaf clover if you don't find one in that area, look somewhere else. Remember, you will have to pull weeds by pressing B. The clovers will be in groups.
More Easy Cash
Go to a friend's town and get some fruit, then go back to your town and bury the fruit. When the tree is done growing sell the fruit to Tom Nook.
Get Mail Quicker
Tell somebody to visit your town, and before you know it your mail has arrived.
Give Your Girls Pigtails
If you have Nookingtons, go to the hair salon and Harriet will ask you some questions. On the first question answer "big nights." On the second question answer "unfortunately." On the third question answer "cold." Then she will give you a list of names and you have to pick "Mysterious."
Annoy Your Neighbors
This is a perfect way to get rid of neighbors you don't want. Just make sure you've visited a friend's town before! First, buy a net. Once you find the neighbor you want out, or just want to annoy, equip the net and hit them with it! Keep hitting them over and over. They'll probably whine and ask why you did that. If you accidently talk to them, just say, 'I don't need you!' or any other option that gets you out of the conversation.
But don't write threat letters! Next time you talk to them, they'll be all proud that they got a letter, and they won't notice what it says!
Get 30,000 bells
Set the date to July or August, get a fishing rod, and go to the sea side and look along the water. If you see a big fish with a shark-like fin sticking out of the water, quickly cast. When you pull it up, it will be a shark, hammer head, or ocean sun fish. Sell it to Tom Nooks and you could get up to 30,000 bells!
During the winter, you'll see two snowballs around your town. Roll both of them into a medium size, then stack them onto each other. If the snowman likes himself, you'll get a rare piece of snowman furniture the next day. Also, if you roll the snowballs into the lower left corner of the town, the snowman will like himself even more and send you two pieces of rare snowman furniture instead of one.
Multiple Prizes from Fishing Tournaments
On the day before the fishing tourney, catch a few big but not valuable fish. Then fast forward to the day of the tourney, and give your fish to Tortimer in order of smallest to biggest. Instead of getting just one present, you will get more.
Different Hair Styles for Girls
You can go into the salon and choose your own style and color by answering a few of Harriet's questions. To get your hair pulled up in a hair-tie, answer "big nights" to her first question, "duh" to her second question and "RAWK!" to type of song.
For hair color, choosing hot will get you pink, red, or yellow, while cold will get you blue, green, or white. Then you'll be able to pick your exact color by choosing the following:
- Young = blue
- Lush = green
- Radiant = white
- Mysterious or Safe = brown
- Lighthearted = yellow
- Fiery = red
- Flirty = pink
Of course there are many different styles, but I don't know exactly what they are. I hope you all like what you come up with. But remember, getting your hair done costs a whopping 3,000 bells! So think about it before you drop your cash for an ugly hair-do!
Customize Your Town Tunes

Anywhere there's cracks
If you see a star-shaped crack in the ground, ALWAYS run over it first. If nothing happens when you run over it, it is something that you could sell. If you fall in, you have fallen into a pitfall seed (trap). To get out of it, keep pressing A button or tap yourself over and over again.

Presents and Fruits
If you want to have different kinds of fruits in your town you will have to send your townsfolks your starter fruits (e.g. apples) and they will send you new kinds such as oranges, peaches, cherries and pears. Now with these new kinds of fruits you can do many things: sell them to earn good money or send them to your townsfolks to get rare presents so you can avoid buying other presents to send them.
During a spotlight product day, if it is a king tut mask, buy it. If you have insurance from Lyle, wear the mask and run around. It must cover your eyes because I trip all the time wearing it. Every time you trip you get 100 bells.
Win the Flower Contest
Hey are you running low on cash but you want to win the flower contest? Well now you can get the flowers for free! All you do is steal everyone's flowers, then you will always win!
Color of Roof
You can change the color of your roof. To do this you need to start over or start if you haven't started yet. Before you start change the color of your DS background by going to the menu. What ever color your DS menu is that is the color your roof will be when you first make a character.
Become Friends with Blathers
If you talk to Blathers when he is depressed-looking, he will say that he detests bugs. Eventually, if you keep talking to him every day for a few days, he will explain how he is trying to overcome his fear, then how he finally gives up.
If you hit a rock with a shovel or an axe, a black dot will fly out out onto the ground. Quickly pull out your net and swap it before it gets away and you'll have a pill bug.
If you realize that one of your neighbors isn't walking around town like the others but is inside their house, then they are either packing, sick, or just inside. If they are sick, then you will notice little swirly things over their heads and they are slumping. They will tell you weird things and will be a little delirious. After they are done, they will give you 3 choices to say something back. Pick the first one and bring them medicine for the next three days. If you don't do this all of the days in a row,
then they will stay like this longer but it will still be three from where you left off. On the fourth day, they will still be in their house. Go and visit him or her and they will be welll again. Talk to him or her and he or she will thank you. Then he or she will give you a present. It most likely won't be something rare but can be something new.
Become Friends with Sable
Whenever you visit the Able Sisters store and try to talk to Sable the hedgehog, she ignores you, or tells you to talk to her sister because she's busy. To build a "friendship" with Sable, you must talk to her at least once every day for several days. Eventually, she will start talking to you.
Become Friends with Brewster
Once a day you can buy coffee at the cafe. If you buy coffee from Brewster every day he will start asking you questions and treating you like a friend. He will ask if he can put special ingredients in your coffee and thank you for coming by.
Once you have the Golden Shovel, you can bury money and it will grow into a tree. The more money you bury, the more money the tree will grow.
Ed. note: problems have been reported with this cheat - use at your own risk!

When Lyle comes to your town he will follow you around everywhere. If you talk to him he will ask a questionniare then try to get you to buy his insurance. His insurance says whenever you get stung by a bee he will send you 100 bells in the mail. By it for 3000 bells. When you buy it he will ask you when you want Redd to come to your town. Tell him whatever day you prefer and he will set up a tent. He will send you some passwords to get into his tent. When you go into his tent he will have very rare items believe me it is worth it.
P.S. Lyle will come back to your town and offer insurance again. Do not talk to him because he will charge you 6000 bells and he will keep doubling the price every time you talk to him.
The Right Way to Sell a Shark
The right way to sell a shark is to catch it from the ocean. Do NOT sell it to Tom Nook for 15,000 bells. Insted wait for a "Flea Market Day" and sell it for 30,000 bells! If you say no to your customer and have another customer come in to look at your shark you can sell it for 32,000 bells! Remember to place your shark in your room.
100 Bells from Lyle
First Buy Health Insurance From Lyle (if he comes a second time don't buy from him again). Then go and buy the King Tut Wig, shake trees and wait for the bees to sting you, or let a mosquito bite you. In the next week Lyle should send you 100 bells in the mail.
Change the date
Before you pick your person, use the pic on the phone and it'll ask you what you need. Then press Reset clock and change the date to December 31, and any year you want. After that, pick your person and go outside and go to your mailbox and there might be a lettter from Mom. Inside is a present. Open it and it's a shirt or something else. (It might not work on the first time.)
Sometime in the game you will see a U.F.O. in the sky. If you have a slingshot shoot it down. It will crash land somewhere in your town. When you find him talk to him 2 times and he should ask you to help him find pieces to his ship. Once you have found all the pieces he will give you a present.
Bell Rocks = Easy Money
In your town
There is a rock in your town. Hit it with a shovel it will spit a bag out; keep doing this. It will stop soon. (Anyone who says you can only do this once is wrong, you can do this after 6am & 6pm)
No Need for Watering Cans
The best way to grow a tree is to plant it when it's raining because it will grow automatically and won't need to be watered. Another way to make them grow automatically is to first chop down an unneeded tree, then take your shovel and dig it out, and dont FILL IN THE HOLE. Instead take the fruit you want and bury it. It shoud start growing by the next day. You don't need a watering can for either of these methods.
Your house, Flea market day
Whenever you get a fossil or a rare fish that sells for a lot of bells don't sell it to Nook, but check how much he will buy them for. Next, either wait for or time travel to the next Flea Market day (Flea market is on the first Saturday of every month except January and August) and set the item up in your house. Finally, wait for someone to come. When they do you can sell the fossils, fish, bugs, etc. for double how much Nook would buy them for. (ex: a Blue Marlin - Nook price, 10,000 bells - Flea market price, 20,000 bells)
1) Plant a flower outside. Then, use B to grab it. Go to your inventory. Use the stylus to drag the flower over to you. Doing this will put the flower on you! If the flower is a rose, it will go in your mouth, like some sort of romantic movie. If not, it will go on your head.
2) Plant a flower outside. Then, use B to grab it. Go inside your house. Go to your inventory. Then, place the flower on the ground, like it was furniture. It will act as a flower in a pot. =)
Evil Redd's Evil Plan
Redd's furniture may be cool but his "valuable" paintings are not! If you buy one of his paintings and try to give it to the museum, you will find that the painting is a fake! Then if you try to sell it, Nook wil only buy it for 10 coins.
Don't give a painting to the art gallery if it is fake! To check if it is, go to Tom Nook's and ask for a catolog. Go to the bottom of furniture list and if the name of the art work is not listed bury it or try and sell it or give it as a gift in the mail. If you send it in the mail the person you sent it to will send you something cool back!
6:00 a.m. or 5:30 p.m., in front of town hall
At the time above, look in the sky and you will see Pete. Shoot him down with your sling shot and get to know him. Do it every day and he will start to like you. If you're a girl, Pelly will get mad, if not, talk to Pelly. You will have an interesting discusion!
Easy Win for Friendly Bug Catching
If you meet a resident who wants to challenge you to a bug catching contest, do the contest and try to win. After you do that, go catch as many rare bugs as you can before he challenges you again. When he challenges you, catch a bug. Soon after, run back to the person and show him one of the RARE bugs you have. You might win.
Pear + Pear + Pear = Coconut
Down at any beach
If you go down to any beach and drop 3 pears side by side (they can have a space between them) in a few days there will be a coconut! Coconuts are worth 500 bells! Approximately 1-5 days.
Grow Money Trees
These are the steps in order:
1) get 90,000 bells
2) get the golden shovel (get it by burying a shovel for 24 hours and digging it up)
3) get an axe
4) cut down a tree
5) dig up the stump with the gold shovel
6) plant the money in the hole where the stump was
7) when the tree is fully grown, it should hold 90,000 bells
Note: if you do this, you do not lose money or gain money...this trick is mainly for decoration.

Get a Perfect Town Rating
First, divide your town into 16 x 16 acre squares, similar to the acres in Animal Crossing for Gamecube. You can use patterns on the ground to mark the acres. Next, make sure every acre has 12-14 trees that aren't touching each other. Then add 3 flowers to every acre and you should have a perfect rating, as long as there are no weeds or trash in your town.
Magic Money Rock
Hit all the rocks in town with a shovel or axe until you find one that releases a money bag. Hit it as many times as you can until it stops releasing bags of money. The next day a new rock will be the money rock, so look for it every day.
