Being Robbed! Avoiding Burglars Tip #1
Yes, in this game you can even be robbed!

They can fit a huge amount into their small bags, so make sure you have alarms all around the house!
Being Robbed! Avoiding Burglars Tip #2
In case you are robbed early in the game and you haven't had a chance to buy alarms, when you see a man in dark clothing sneaking slowly down the street, quickly wake up your sims and get them to call the police. If you catch him, the police will come, you will be rewarded for catching him and get any things that were taken back.
Cooking Skills
When starting a new home, buy a bookshelf and sit your sims down to read some cooking books.

Build up their cooking skills as much as possible, otherwise they will make bad tasting food which will not satisfy there hunger, and they may burn the house down.
Get a job!
The first thing to do when making a new family is to get everyone in the house a job.

Check the paper or the computer. There are more options on the computer, choose the highest paying one and note the starting times.
Getting Hitched
To get married, build up a good relationship with your partner and eventually and option to "Get married" will pop up. Choose it and you will get married.
Having Kids! Option 3.
If you don't want to use the other option for having kids, you could always just add a child to your family at the start of the game.
Increase Charisma
To increase you charisma (which you may need to do for certain jobs) go to a mirror and practise a speech until your charisma bar fills.
Interesting Fact
As you get promoted and move up in ranks in different jobs, you will come home in better cars.
Money Money
Once you have had a child, and they have grown up, get them to study until they get A+ grades and each day they will get $100 from grandma for good grades.

Never get fired
If you miss a day or work, you will get a phone call warnign you.

If you miss two days you will be fired.

To save these hassals in case you wanna throw a party or sleep in, simple sell you phone. You can miss as much work as you want and never get fired.
No bills!
Delete your mailbox (just outside your house) and you will never recieve any more bills.

No matter how huge the bills you run up, the bills will never come.
They get lonely!
Like real people, sims get lonely and sad if they don't interact with anyone.

So, if you make a family of just one person, make sure they visit neighbours often or they'll get depressed.
Tips for beginners
Here are a few points to use when starting out.

-Always go to work happy, this way you will get promoted quickly and get extra money in the early tough stages of the game.

-Quickly build up a good relationship with your wife and neighbours.

-Check yours sims stats and make sure they are happy and have everything full.

-Don't work them to hard. If they don't get sleep they will be demoted and lose money.
Vary your diet.
To add some variation to your sims diet, buy a BBQ and cook some burgers ever now and then.

Quickly Learn Skills
When you start making your adult Sim, you just have to do this for a little amount of extra skills.

- First just fill in a name for your Sim, a personality and a bio if you prefer, but do NOT make an adult already. Just make a kid, so if you want to have a woman make a girl and if you want to make a man make a boy. You do not have to pick out clothes and stuff.
- Then press the 'Done' button, so you see the head of your created Sim.
- Press the 'Edit' button. You'll go back to the Edit menu.
- Now you make an adult of your kid, Choose the wanted clothes, face; your wanted Sim. Press 'Done' again and in the menu screen (when you're ready, you can also make some other Sims) press 'Done' again. So if you'll move your Sim into a house, he/she will have some Skills already!

When the social worker comes to take your kid...
Ya know when you are working all hard to get the baby to grow up and that annoying message say you're neglecting the child? Well, when this happens and you see the social worker, QUICKLY pause the game and delete ALL the doors. This will result in with a new baby in the place of the old one and a box asking what you wish to name the baby.
