How to Make Money Bags

Available Any Time from Your Pockets


Money bags can be created at any time by moving the cursor to the Money Bag icon on the Menu. When you press A with your cursor on the icon, you can select an amount of Bells to change into a Money Bag. Any unit from 100 Bells on can be changed into an Item in your inventory, though units less than 1000 Bells with be rendered as a Coin instead.

The maximum number of Money Bags is 99, for a maximum of 99,000 Bells. After that, you won't be able to make more money bags.

What to Do with Money Bags

Plant a Money Tree

Bell Tree next to a Fruit Tree

Every day, a Glowing Spot will appear somewhere on your island, which you can dig up to collect 1,000 Bells. In addition, you can plant a Money Bag in the remaining hole to make a Money Tree, which will yield three Money Bags equivalent to the planted amount.

Although placing the 1,000 Bell bag found in the hole is fine, it's far more profitable to plant large amounts of Bells to maximize your gains from a single Money Tree.

How to Grow Money Trees

Send Them to other Villagers


If you're the generous type, you can send presents to the other residents, including Money Bags. When you meet them again later, they will comment on your present, and might even give you a present in return!

How to Send Letters and Postcards

Give Them to Other Players

When you visit another player on their island, you can give them some Bells in a Money Bag. This is highly convenient for Online trading, as it allows players to set Bells as a condition for a trade. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any way to trade Miles at this time.
