A Quick Friendship Boost
Are you tired of having to take the time to give Julia, Vaughn, and/or Mirabelle your eggs or milk? Just look in the description of villagers and anyone with their Likes as an animal product will take... are you ready?... PET FOOD. That's right. They will take pet food like it's a jewel, really! Here is the response after giving Julia Pet Food... "I like this. did you already know?" Boom.
A way to skip typhoons and blizzards
I really hate typhoons and blizzards! Urg... But there's a way to skip experiencing the typhoon.

With this, you're livestock won't be affected by being unhappy or sick.
The only downside is the other effects of typhoon like more weeds and sticks are still going to take effect.

First, ask Taro for the news. -->there's a typhoon
Second, Work late but maintain your stamina and fullness bar. Wait until past 12 midnight.
Third, use your tools to deplete your stamina until you pass out.

The next day you wake up, you'll be in the day after the day of the typhoon.
No more sick or unhappy animals!
Earlygame Quick Cash
When you start you won't have much money. Just gather everything that you can and ship it. When you run out of room in your rucksack you can just stack stuff on top of each other if they are the same type item. An example for this is if you have 2 eggs in different spots just drag one to the other using the touch screen or control pad.
Fast, Free Animals!
Who likes spending money in Harvest moon knowing that you can't really give it out so fast? Well here's a fast and easy way to get free animals without doing much. First of all do you remember Mirabelle? She's the lady who sell's the pet food, the brush and the bell? Well before you do anything buy the brush first, it helps out a lot. To me the bell doesn't really matter, i mean i don't take my animals out and when i do they stay close to the stable already, so i see no real point for it. Well any way, it's pretty simple becomes friends with Mirabelle. Simple right? Well there's also a free way for that too. Most of the time in front of Danny's house is maybe one or two flowers. Pick those and give her one each day. After a while she'll give you a sun stone, however don't stop, because she'll the give you a horse as well. Even then don't stop because she'll also help you with a dog and give you yet again another sun stone. All you really have to do is pick the flowers and give them to her, when there is no flowers though just talk to her.
Festival Fishing
If you can catch enough fish, fishing can reap quite a hefty profit. However, fishing can be such a drag, especially since it takes so long. Before you know it, it's late at night and you've only caught five or six fish. But did you know that you could fish during festivals? And here's the best part - time doesn't move!

During any festival, grab your fishing rod and head over to any location on the Meadow where you can fish. It's a good idea to stock up on Blue Herbs before you do this (I had about 12), and you probably want to max your Stamina before going to the Meadow. Once you've arrived at the festival, you can fish for as long as you'd like. Time will never move, and your only limitation will be your Stamina. You won't be able to see your Stamina, so make sure you pay attention to when your character starts getting tired (first they will while their forehead, and then they will bend over in exhaustion) and eat Blue Herbs to keep your Stamina filled. With this tactic, you can fish for as long as you'd like, easily rack up fishing points, and make a huge profit early on in the game. Just keep fishing and keep eating those Blue Herbs and you can easily find yourself with at least 50 fish, all in "one day's work."
Lava Bubbles
The lava bubbles scattered around the mines can be destroyed by watering them 3 times! The result of doing so is Gelatin, a recipe ingredient. When descending down the mines, it is wise to keep your watering can full, as there is no way to refill it in the mines. The watering can is especially useful on floors 100 and 200, which contain nothing but lava bubbles.
Restoring Wild Items
If you're wondering why there don't seem to be any herbs growing anymore towards the end of the month, you should clear away weeds, stones and logs!

I've been testing it out and it seems that the spaces where you find wild items will continue to give you new items as long as the space is clear, so if there are weeds there you should take them away and it'll replace them with a new set of logs, weeds, stones, herbs and other wild items!
Sun Stone, Money, Free Time And New People!
Ok well first of all when you first start i know you are told you have to get all the islands up and going right? Well don't do Link Island first even if it is the cheapest. Fruit Island, Green House Island and Rice Island are a big no, no just for the fact that you'll need at least 15k to build a bridge to those Island and their mostly 8 and 10 sun stones each. I would have to say go for Volcano Island first, not only will you get a sun stone there but you can also get a lot of money there as well. For me i only go there on day's that rain since i not only have more free time but also have a lot of energy left. I also go around the main Island and look around for items on the ground to help me in there as well, because if you fall in Volcano Island in a 'pit' you have a chance of losing a lot of energy or little, i like to know what i'm doing in there. As you should know the further down you go the more the ores sell for. Also Volcano Island needs 8 sun stones, so don't spend any! When you get Volcano Island up you'll get two new people, Will and Lily.

Sun Stones
there are 100 Sun Stones in the game

you obtain them by:

> finding them (there are some hidden on the islands)
> giving people (includes sub-villagers like the inn keeper) 5 items they like (music note above their head)
> Shipping certain items of a particular quantity ( ex. 100 Spring crops)
> befriending people (includes sub-villagers) to 2 hearts
> Using Maker Machines a certain number of times
> Learning recipes
> From befriending your animals and owning a certain number of them
> Traveling to the islands by boat
Sun Stones
you get the first sun stone from Taro
so far i only found five more
-at the back of the harvest sprite garden
-at the well at the south side of Sprout Island
-at the windmill on your farm
-at the back rock of light house island
-at a tree on Verdure island

I'll post more when I find out more but this is how you get the first 6 sun stones

Who's Truly Easy To Get?
Well I'm playing as a girl and to tell the truth i'm going to have to go with Pierre. You can give him almost anything you find on the ground around the main Island! But i do have to say this, don't give him the seaweed on the rock by the ocean side! You can sell that stuff for 108 each! And if your low on money that's a great way to get some up and going. But any way, yes Pierre is the easiest boy on the game to get. He doesn't really help much, i mean he does give you a sun stone when you get his hearts on the blue or dark pink but other than that nothing... he's useless. But he is just so cute! ^^ hah But that said the hardest person to get is Vaughn. He only comes to the Island to times out of a week and doesn't really like much that you can get, however, there is one thing. Animal food.. It's cheap and easy to get so give him one every time he's there just don't talk to him after ward or it'll take longer!

» Sounds like fun! = Positive answer!
Maybe Witch will show you some magic later.

» What's with all the bears? = Negative answer.
All of Witch's books are great in her opinion. You must just not understand.

Blue Heart Event

» Witch's house
» Rainy day: 6:00 am to 1:00 pm
» Witch Princess at 4 hearts (20,000 FP) or higher

» Keep listening. = Positive answer!
Witch continues on about the pink potion until she finally gets the idea to make a potion that will turn a person into the color of mulberry. She thanks you for the idea.

» Don't listen to the rest. = Negative answer.
You start pacing around, which annoys Witch. It isn't nice to wander around when someone is talking!

Green Heart Event

» Witch's house
» Rainy day: 6:00 am to 1:00 pm
» Witch Princess at 5 hearts (30,000 FP) or higher

» He got what he deserved! = Positive answer!
The wolf had been playing a lot of tricks on a nearby village too. How dare the wolf try to play a trick on someone like the Witch! She thanks you for listening to her because it has been a long time since she's had a chance to talk about her past.

» That was going too far... = Negative answer.
Witch is disappointed that you're taking the wolf's side. She is more than willing to fight it out with you, so you run out of the house.

Yellow Heart Event

» Walk into your farm house
» Rainy day: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
» Not on Cloudy days
» Witch Princess at 7 hearts (40,000 FP) or higher

Go out = Positive answer!
You end up taking Witch to Mushroom Island. She is rather disappointed at your choice of outing. The place looks so boring and there's nothing here! You show her the giant mushrooms living in the middle of the island and she has never seen mushrooms like these before. Witch ponders if being underwater allowed the mushrooms to mutate and grow so big. She asks if you would help her take one of the large mushrooms to her home. You refuse and tell her it is impossible.

Witch figured there wasn't anything you couldn't do, although on second thought she probably doesn't have room in her house for the large mushroom anyway. She thanks you for bringing her to the Mushroom Island.

Don't want to go out = Negative answer.
Grrr! The Witch Princess leaves.
