Tip 1. Fish

The first tip is, fish as much as you can before the egg festival (the 12th). Try to accumulate as many fish as possible. As soon as you reach level 5 in fishing, get the perk that gives you a bonus when selling fish. Sell all duplicate fish to get as much money as possible.

Tip 2. Become Caroline’s Friend

Once you get two friendship hearts from Caroline, you can enter a room from her kitchen. A cutscene will play, and the next day, she’ll give you the tea recipe. Tea is very simple to make, and can be sold for 500 gold each. It is an excellent source of income. Here is a list of all things Caroline likes.

Tip 3. Plant Strawberry

During the egg festival, spend all your money on buying strawberry seeds. You can only grow strawberries during spring. There will be time to make two harvests. Each common strawberry is worth 120g. Without a doubt it is one of the best ways to make money in the beginning.
