Get More Money (In a Business) Faster

When you own or operate a business, get one of the charging to get in items under. Electronics> Other> Charge Thing.
If you do that and don't charge a lot, you'll have the money from their sale, but also from their payment to get in. Another cruel wasy to do it is; when everyone is in the store, take away all of the doors to the outside.
If you do that they'll just keep buying things. I've also found it really neat to get the selectable, go to their inventory, get the items they bought, place them in the room, then sell em' !

Adding neighbors to your family, removing the plumb bob, and hav

To summon the Cheat window press:
AddneighbortoFamilycheat on/off - With this cheat just hold down the shift key and left click on an NPC to add to your current household. It won't work on NPCs engaged in thier jobs (maid cleaning, gardener gardening, etc.) but after they're finish and they want to hang out then you can add them. You could have more than 8 sims on your lot. It won't work on special NPCs like the Grim Reaper or Mrs. Crumplebottom.
Forcetwins - With this a pregnant sim pregnancy will transform into a twin birth but it have to be done while the sim is pregnant and not while the sim is giving birth
Plumbbobtoggle on/off - This makes the overhead plumb bob invisible

Changing mood and skills

This is really for all of the sims two games, but you know when everyone
Says you gotta type in 'Boolprop testing cheatsenabled true' and then go to a resident lot, there's another way. When you turn the game on and your in

If you have Nightlife or Open For Business you can save uneaten plates of food and serving plates of food in your inventory for later use and it won't spoil. Just take it out of your inventory for a quick meal anytime. No more wasted food if you serve a meal in a small household and no time wasted on food prep when you are running late for work!

Keep food fresh

In buy mode, go to tables, then shelves. Purchase the Chill-Freeze Counter. Now, just have your sim make a meal, and don't let them serve it, or, use Make...Group Meal...Food. Using buy mode, place the meal in the Chill-Freeze counter, and whenever a sim is hungry, take it out (use buy mode), have them grab a plate, and then place it back in the Chill-Freezer. Ta- Da! Now you don't have to cook every time your sim is hungry!

Press Ctrl, Shift And C.

How to end your job quicker

OK. Get the boolprop testingcheatsenabled true cheat and then,shift-left click your sim and choose something than you know thats not going to work, like trying to be a vampire without The sims 2 nightlife-that won't work and so on.
Do that about a few hours before work. While you're at work, there should be
A sign about the error with your sim. Click reset, and then, right in the middle of your house you find your sim!
