Is anyone else having trouble with earning enough bells to redesign their island? I've been playing for nearly a year now and have never found a way to earn enough bells to even add a second room to my house. I recently removed and sold every tree, seashell, weed, flower on the island and piece of furniture in my house to try and pay for one staircase, (my first one). Yet I still did not have enough to even make a dent. I needed almost 1,000,000 Bells to donate for one staircase. Yet every item I managed to sell would only get me 100 bells at best. This combined with my tools breaking constantly adds to the frustration. Am I the only one having trouble with this? Is their some surefire way to earn more bells easily? Or do I have to put in 10 years of my life just to build one bridge and pay off one house loan?
