Get lots of money, treasures, and ship parts fast
This way is much faster than slashing bushes, etc. The best ways you can do after you have 2-3 maps. You have to have a few hundred dollars to do this, so sell some treasures if you must. It will quickly be turned into thousands.
There are 2 games you can do- the ship-cannon game (on Bannan island) and the Goron game. Choose 1 and play it about 20 times. Hopefully, you will get a better score each time and will start to be able to get a good prize with each try. You will probably get several 100-200 rupees. Most prizes you can sell for at least 50 and many sell for 800.
You can do it more if you want. Then go to your home island and sell stuff at the treasure shop. Don't sell ship parts that you have only 1 of, since it's hard to get all the parts you need. The game gives you lots of multiples on ship parts, so if you have 2 or more of something just sell the extras. And you can sell some or all of the treasures. Pretty soon you will have upwards of 6000 rupees. If you start to get low on money, just go to the games while you still have a thousand or so.
Also, sometimes I save and exit the game, and then turn off the game. I then change the date, and restart the game. Every time I do this, Beadles and the other stores have new stuff. Beadles often has hard to get ship parts, so I can get ones I need faster this way.
