Get a job and get promoted
The easiest, classic way of making money: get a job, work hard and get promoted. When you start working, you will receive a pretty low salary per hour, but if you keep working and get better, that will increase. This is extremely useful money, so make sure that you do your job well and pretty soon you’ll start reaping on the benefits.
The fastest way to double your income (or more) is to get married. You will automatically get a new person that brings in the money to your household and, using the first rule, you will be able to make a nice sum that will eventually allow you all the luxuries that you want. If you manage to score one of the rich Sims, it’s even better. But either way, getting married in The Sims 4 is extremely profitable!
Hobbies make you money
Painting, writing or inventing stuff – all these are hobbies that won’t make you much when you start them, but if you keep on doing it and increase your skill levels here, you will soon earn a lot of money from these hobbies. Just try to get one and stick to it (one per Sim, actually), so that you become a real master of the hobby and can sell your creations for a nice profit.
Sing for some Simoleons
It’s not as easy as turning your hobby into a money making machine, but it works. Start practicing on your guitar and when your skill level is high enough, go to a park or a really crowded area and play for tips. Eventually, as your skill continues to go up, you will make some nice extra money.
Do stuff that earns you things
There are a lot of items to collect in the game and also a lot of stuff you can do in The Sims 4 that can potentially earn you extra money. From simply collecting stuff and animals as you play the game from parks and backyards to going fishing or growing vegetables, there are a ton of things that can give you items which can later on be sold for a profit. Even though most of these items won’t earn you much, the rarer they get, the more money they will make you, so keep on doing it and eventually you will score big!
In the end, if you want to make money in The Sims 4 without cheating, you have to follow the real life rules most of the time. In other words, be extremely active and keep on doing the things that you do. Eventually, your income and money stash will be high enough for you to live a luxury life!
