Cheats by the Book
These cheats are definitely correct because they came from the official game guide.
To open cheat window: ctrl + Shift + C ...but you already knew that right?!
1.) AddneighbortoFamilycheat [on/off]: With this cheat activated you can Shift + left click on an NPC to add one to the current household. This won't work on service NPCs engaged in their jobs, like the maid cleaning and what not, but it will work if that same NPC is visiting socially or hanging out after work. You can even add sims in excess of the customary 8 sim limit on families. This cheat doesn't work on NPCs like the Grim Reaper or Mrs. Crumplebottom.
2.) Forcetwins: With a pregnant sim selected, using this cheat transforms the pregnancy into a twin birth. (unlike twinsr2cute/twinzr2cute which, in my expirience, rarely works)
3.) Plumbobtoggle [on/off]: Makes the overhead plumb bob (the diamond thingy above their heads) invisible.
PS: Typing exit into the cheat window doesn't actually exit the game, it simply exits the cheat window.
PSS: The creator of the Sims is named Will Wright (sp?) and you can see a picture of him in sim form at the back of the create a sim room...ish place where you first make a family.
Buy perk screen
At any time in the game press select button and go to the perk screen and go to buy perks. you will see a selection of perks that you can buy. hold down the L, R and Square buttons for 3 seconds. A new perk will appear with a picture of a purple heart called cheat.
Refill the Alien-Killing Super-Drencher
Don't refill the super drencher with regular water - go to the desert and go to the strange glowing water in the very back. Load this into your Drencher and the gun will definitely kill aliens.
First off, save your game, and turn your DS off. Then, turn it back on. Go to the menu on your DS and switch the time FORWARDS, say a couple of hours. Then play it again. The Concierge will pop up and say something like "You time-traveling idiot! The aliens are attacking! Run!"
DO NOT go near the aliens - they will get HUNGRY signs over their heads and try to eat you. Spraying them with your water pistol won't work either, because they will still try to eat you. Ouch.
Max all Attributes
Hold down the L, R and Square buttons and wait about 30 seconds.
(ed. note: Careful, there isn't much left to do in the game once everything is maxed out. This is unverified.)
L, R, Up, A, Z
To get a haunted hotel first, buy a Cute Ghost Picture (1000 dollars). Then put it in the manager suite and admire it. Finally go out to the lobby there should be a ghost flying around. (look everywhere: on the stairs, in the walls)

Free Harvested Food
Use the following trick if you are in need of food and have very little money. Buy an item that can have food harvested from it. Harvest the food from it, sell it back, then buy another. This will keep you from having to spend money on food. Unless there is more than one sim in your house, you do not have to worry about the other Sim wasting money buying non-harvested foods.
If you have an objective that requires buying furniture, just buy it to complete the goal, then delete it to get your money back.
