It's no secret that The Sims employs a network of extravagant items and Stuff packs. However, obtaining such items does come at a rather hefty price, and one that not every Sim and their neighbour can afford, either. That being said, there is a way to purchase such luxuries without having to resort to nine-to-five grinds, as long as you know the Sims 4 money cheat.
Of course, a money cheat isn't a revolutionary concept by any means. In fact, The Sims has held the same one for the best part of 20 years now, which has helped fellow gamers unlock their inner creativity without having to pour dozens of hours into climbing career ladders and what have you. Question is, how can you activate it, and what effects does it have on the overall gameplay once implemented?
