First off, clean up the house. It will make you and your mom happy. Then, study until Mechanical skills are at 2. Fix the broken TV after that. Then, study until your cooking is also at 2. Then cook either breakfast,lunch,dinner. Then talk to your mom, compliment her, and let your relation ship get to about 50-70. Then borrow money. Do this for a while and soon you'll have enough!
Sell all the bad stuff. When you get there, I suggest you save, go back to main screen, then hit L+R and enter FREEALL. Go back to your game. Sell the really old/bad stuff, and get cooler things. Build the house, get a job, and get promoted 3 times! YAY! Your onto the 3rd level! Once I beat Level 3 and 4 Ii'll post easy ways to get through it! BYE!
