Without an Action Replay, the main way to get money is to sell things. And without selling things, there really is no way to get "high amounts of money." However, there are some alternate ways to get small amounts of money:

Shake trees. Unless you've cut down all your trees, of course. Walk up to one with no item in your hands and press A to shake trees. If you shake fruit trees, you get fruit, and you have to sell it. But if you shake non-fruit trees, you get one of three things. Nothing, Bells, or lots of bees.

Run errands. Every once in a while, while talking to a neighbor, they will ask you to deliver something; a letter, package, or something similar. Make sure your pockets and letters have one empty spot, then accept. Deliver and come back, and you'll get something. Sometimes it'll be Bells, sometimes furniture or stuff like that. Unfortunately, you'll never know until you deliver the thing.

Interact with neighbors. Sometimes, your neighbors will challenge you to contests, or drop hints about something they want. If you can beat their challenge, or give them what they want, sometimes they'll give you Bells.

Search for the money rock. In every town there are rocks. And every day there is a money rock. Equip your shovel and walk up to every rock in your town. Dig a hole behind you to make sure you don't back away from the rock. Then, press A to hit the rock. If nothing happens...fill in the hole and move on to the next one. If money falls out, quickly tap the A button until no more money comes out. This actually is a high amount of money, but you can only do it once a day.

with the money rock you get 8,500 bells, but you have to spam the "A" butten and have a hole to to 1 side of you and 1 hole behined you, if you do both sides you lose 4,000 bells... but you also get about 800 to 2,400 shaking trees [you will get stung by bees but DONT get medicine for it just log of and log on again]

A way to get tons of money is to change the time settings on your ds to january 1st any year, then look in your mailbox. You will get 10000 bells. Do this 5 times to get 50000 bells then go to january 1st 2000. Put all the money in your bank account. Next go to the year 2099. Take all the money out. You will have 99999 bells!!! Keep doing this to get tons of money!

One way is to get a golden shovel , then go tring to dig rocks.If you are lucky, money will pop out. But dig around you, or you will dig and fall back, then you won't get much...

find a coconut and plant near the sea, now harvest the coconuts and plant and so on until the shoreline is lined with coconut trees. regularly harvest the coconuts and sell them to tom nook, do this with other fruit trees. remember to save a few coconuts to trade because people will be willing to trade

You need to put bells in your bank account at the town hall. Once the money is in there do the time travel thing and you will get money.

To get money you need to get sea shells and sig the little things under the ground or shake trees. Personally I don't time travel because I like my noughboigers and they give you free stuff sometimes and I also don't time travell because you get lots of weeds and it takes time to dig all the weeds and four leef clovers out

Just shake all the trees and whatever falls out, sell it at tom nooks. If there is a bee hive, take out your net and quickly catch it (press a)

Hope this helps;P

Sell dinosuar fossils if you don't want to put them in your museum, they sell for a few thousand bells depending on which type it is. Also, if you have a golden shovel, you can plant a money tree! Sometimes it doesn't work though. The more money you bury, the better chance you have of your tree working. Though remeber that your risking all of that money if it doesn't work. :D

Change date to 2000 put 50,000 bells in it change it 3 days forward then change it to 2099 and you should have letter from town hall saying you have 99,999 bells in you're bank!!
You get weeds though!

Hope this helped!

Hello! :] Before you read any more of this, are you okay with time-travel? If you are...then...keep reading.
First, you need to have at least 10,000 bells in the bank. (It won't take long to get, just sell identified fossils and gyroids that you dig up). Once that is done, go to your ds system time (NOT THE ANIMAL CROSSING TIME THAT YOU ACCESS WITH THE PHONE). System time. (lol :3) set the year to 2000. Go to your town, click your character, save and quit once you walk out. Turn the power off and go to system time. Set the year to 2099. Click your character. You should have gotten up to 99,000 bells in interest. Save and quit. Go back to system time, change the year to 2000, go to your town, etc. It may take a while, and require time travelling, but it is the best way to get a lot of money quickly, everytime you go back to 2099, you will get 99,000 bells.
:] I hope you use this cheat. It worked for me (even though it took a while -_- be warned that some villagers may move away :(
But if you do ANYTHING for money XD this is the cheat for you! (thumbs up)

Steps to virtual moneyy XD
1. Put 10,000 bells in the bank.
2. Set DS system time to year 2,000
3. Go to your town, then save and end.
4. Set DS system time to 2099
5. Go to your town
6. Check your mail! You should have a letter from the town hall saying you gained bells.
7. Repeat from step 2, you will get 99,000 bells every time you go back to the year 2099.

One way that I got lots of money and paid off my mortgage was by selling beetles/fish at the flea market. I got TONS of money for them because the villagers will pay double(sometimes more, depending which villager it is) what Tom Nook will pay. I went back to a night in July at 1AM, because that's like the "prime time" for rare bugs. If you just walk around, you'll see lots of beetles on trees, the beetles that are worth the most are usually on the coconut trees down by the ocean. You can also catch tarantulas and scorpions at this time, which you can get at least 16,000 bells for at the flea market. You could also go fishing at this time, I'm not positive when the "prime time" for fish is, but I know I caught a hammerhead shark from the ocean while I was hunting for bugs! After you've caught a bunch of bugs/fish go back to your house and set it up for the flea market, take out all the stuff your not selling and only put out the things you are selling(ex. The fish and bugs you just caught or other things you don't want/need). Then just go to the first Saturday of whatever month you want and wait inside your house for the villagers to come in! I would recommend finding out what Tom Nook will pay for all your items first though, so you know what a good price is for all your items. You can either look up his prices online or go into his store and find out yourself.

Hope this helped! It worked for me, I paid off my last loan and got a mansion in one day! WOOHOOOO!
