Getting gold can seem hard for some people and if you your just starting the game or in need of gold heres a handy tip for unlimted gold... But note this may take some time to get the gold you may want.
Ok first go to Riverwood, then go to the Mill behind Alvor and Sigrid's house, you should find a woodcuter's axe behind the mill on a stump if you can't find one I'm sure Alvor will sale you one,
After you have the woodcuter's axe go to the back of the Mill by an roofed dock, (only wodden decking that gose out to the river) you'll see a tree stump, it'll be called a wood choppig black, press X, (or what button you assinge to "Activate")
You'll start getting firewood, in the shops this will sell for 2 gold but the man called Hod will pay 5 gold each, Ok it don't sound much but eath time you use the wood chopping block you get 6 pieces of firewood, that means 30 gold, say you do that 100 times thats 600 firewood and 3'000 gold, Hod will show at the mill in riverwood around 12:30pm (just after midday) but I'm unsure what time he leaves.
I hope this helps, therapper
