With the latest 2.0 update introducing an abundance of new features into Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there’s plenty to do on your island. From terraforming to getting the most out of your furniture, there are plenty of tips and tricks you’ll want to keep in mind.

One of the first tasks you’ll have to tackle on your new island is filling up your personal home with a nice range of decorative items. With a bit of forward planning, you can make sure that you have everything you need before you start moving furniture around.

But before you head over to Tom Nook’s store, make sure that you’ve cataloged all of the items you’ve picked up on your island. This will ensure that you don’t miss out on some valuable cash that could have otherwise been missed.

You can find a lot of things to pick up on your island in animal crossing, from tree branches to fruit and weeds. To pick something up in animal crossing, simply highlight the item and press the A button. This will add the item to your inventory and let you use it however you wish.

Another way to earn some extra cash on your island is by fishing. This can be a super relaxing experience and it’s also very profitable. Even the lowest-priced fish sell for a few hundred bells, which can be easily earned in just a few hours of gameplay. You can also visit your friend’s islands to find new types of fruit, or you can plant a money tree on your island (which will always pay out a few hundred bells each). There are lots of ways to earn money in animal crossing, but these are just a few that we recommend trying early on.
