I've just started playing ACNH and I have a bit of a silly question but I thought I may as well go ahead and ask anyway.
I wanted to know if people prefer to gather all of their bells themselves using in-game activities. I was very generously donated an abundance of bells which could well and truly pay off all of my renovation costs for all house upgrades, however I'm wondering if this will be as satisfying in the long run as I didn't have to go out there and collect everything myself. I suppose the same goes with special furniture items, clothing, hybrids and such, I know there are many giveaways that can get you just about anything you want.
On the other hand, I know how tedious it can be to slave away at the sea side for hours on end trying to catch expensive fish to sell, so I'm sort of in two minds about it. I also am aware that the game presents many challenges and activities far beyond paying off the home loan, so I know there are still heaps of things to work towards unlocking.
I'd be interested to hear peoples' thoughts and opinions as I am very indecisive! Thanks
if it was my first time playing I definitely would not want to get gifted that kind of money. it takes a lot of fun out of the early game. if I reset my town and was starting again from scratch, I'd be happy to skip another grind
same goes for most of the things you listed too. my two exceptions would be DIY recipe cards and certain hybrids that are hard to breed. those I would happily take in my first play through

It’s definitely more satisfying if you gather all the bells yourself. It gives you the sense that you earned it rather than just getting it handed to you. You’ll have more fun accomplishing things yourself.

Hello! I also replied to you on TBT but I want to give different advice here
Agreed with the others about bells! (not as sure about other items)
Personally I liked fruit collection~
Honestly, in ACNH there's not much to work towards besides the loan. There's only one shop upgrade, so you don't need a ton of bells to keep buying everything up, no Gracie furniture, no expensive PWPs, the bar for achievements is much lower than ACNL... So, if you're not slowly working towards earning bells for things I think you'll get bored quicker.
Unless if you just want to decorate and treat it like a sandbox, then that's different.

Hi StarlitGlitch, thanks so much for the advice across both sites hehe! I think I definitely agree with you and decided to give up the bells. In the end I only used them to get one of the upgrades so I still have plenty to work towards! I'm undecided when it comes to other items too, but I think earning your own bells is the most important.
in return for your continued advice and overall loveliness, I'd love to give you some of the bells I don't need! I know I could just keep them but I think I'd much rather just get rid of them and not be tempted. There aren't heaps left, maybe about a million. Would you be interested?
I'd also love to have a visitor, or even better - visit other towns so that I can get some inspiration!
