Hey there, started NH last week and obviously am needing money for all my projects! I'm wondering the best (and easiest) ways to earn money, like how the bugs on the island at night in NL were the easiest way to earn bells quickly. I know the tarantulas are pretty easy, but I'm having trouble finding more than 2-3 a night. I'm also growing fruit trees that aren't native, but looking for something a bit more lucrative. Thanks!

I got a big field full of flowers to breed hybrids, it attracts emperor butterflies (4k each) and man faced stink bugs (1k each). Not the greatest but you’ll find them very often so it’s just the catching that takes some time.
I used this method to get my first 400k so I could switch to turnips.

Edit: emperor butterflies and man faced stink bugs only spawn at night fyi

If you're looking to get bells in the seven figures and up, the stalk market is pretty much the only way to go. Fruit trees will help get you that initial investment, once you have 120-150 foreign fruit trees you can net around 200k per harvest, though your island will be cluttered with trees as a drawback.  

Try joining turnip discords (PT me if you want a link to a turnip discord I use, someone there was selling turnips for >500 bells today) and various turnip threads around the site to hunt for good selling prices. Make sure also to use a turnip wizard which will analyse how your turnip prices will change throughout the week and will help decide whether or not you want to hold on to them or sell.

burying 33k bell bags in the glowing spots will get you trees with three 33k bell bags, so that's an easy daily 99k once the first one has grown. if you bury more than 33k though, you'll only get 10k bags in return

ocean fishing.  Unless you get lucky and find an islad full of sharks the current big money fish are:

1. red snapper
2. bared knifejaw
3. tuna
4. blue marlin

If you're lucky with bait you can pull these out quite abit

I've just been making my own tarantula islands and catching tarantulas (8k a piece) until my inventory is full.


What you need:

needs 7 PM at night (nov-april)

1 Axe (2 to be safe)

1 Net (2 to be safe)

Shovel (bring more if you want)

Vaulting Pole

Ladder

Nook island ticket (2,000 miles)


Good Island layout (ie. we still have to hope RNG cooperates):

- needs to be as flat as possible to make things easier to respawn bugs, but a cliff/river is doable, albeit tedious
- needs to actually be able to spawn bugs. for example: centipede island is an automatic fail. those only spawns centipedes on the 5 rocks double cliff
- spiral island and bamboo island are AMAZING for this. But I've made do with only 1 cliff/river and mostly flat layouts.

-rule of thumb, if you're island is a decent layout tarantulas usually spawn every other minute. Takes me about 1-2 hours to fill my inventory when I'm on a decently flat island.



How it works:

Go to the Island with the ticket you bought.

Cut down ALL the trees.

Remove all the stumps.

Pluck all the flowers. (You don't have to shovel them.)

Clear all the weeds to make it easier to see when the spooders spawn.

Eat fruit and break ALL the rocks.

Once that’s done: the chance of tarantulas spawning will skyrocket. Move clockwise (or counter clockwise) around the island, de-spawn any tiger beetles or wharf roaches as you go (run over them) and try to hug the beach corners as you go. Move from one side to the other to keep bugs re-spawning.

Scaring away fish seems to help too, but I'm not sure if the fish share bug spawn limits or if the fish and bugs count separately for spawn limit



How to actually catch the tarantulas:

Have your net out at all times.

Walk! Don’t run.

As soon as it sees you, hold A to start sneaking toward the spooder.

The moment it starts moving toward you: stop and swing your net!


Can also dig holes in choke points (spooder can't pass them and your net still reaches them)  or do the red light green light method. (sneak, stop when they rear up and wait for it to chill, repeat until you're close enough to catch it)

Tarantula island definitely works great. I usually turn 2 mystery islands into a tarantula island each night. It's even better when Flick is in town because he pays 12,000 for each tarantula.

I haven't heard this tarantula island method before, sounds interesting. Are Flick's appearances random?

yeah flick is completely random as far as I know. I had him in my town yesterday. one inventory full of tarantulas net me almost 500k! was insane. (he pays 12k per tarantula)

(the other two islands were duds though. stupid rng ><)

correction on my post, turns out there is only a chance you'll get three bags of 33k bells on a bell tree, I just got lucky with my first couple anything over 10k has the potential to grow three bags of whatever you buried, but usually it becomes three bags of 10k

Diving can get you a decent amount of money as well.

Also, if you're desperate for materials or money, feel free to ask me (I dont know what to do with my stuff)

The best way is and always will be turnips, but that requires networking with other players and a slight gamble.

My personal favorite method is saving up bugs/fish for Flick/C.J. and unloading onto them. OFC, that isn't as instantly gratifying as cashing out turnips or selling loads of fruit.

Another good method is to throwback to New Leaf and transform a Nook Miles island into a knock-off Tortimer island. I dunno if this works so much anymore since NMT islands abide by the same seasons as home islands, but it's certainly viable during beetle and shark season. Tarantula island is great as well. For a bonus cashout, hold onto them for Flick.

There's also collecting heaps of sea shells to hang on to until something from the shell set becomes a hot item. Then you just craft said item and sell 'em off. That was a primary moneymaker for me up until I got real lucky with turnips.

My favourite way to earn money is through diving, if I go with my pockets semi empty I usually get 25k per diving session!
