Quick money:
Enable cheat mode and enter the klapaucius code. Display the cheat prompt 
again & type !;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!:!;! 
(up to sixty total commands may be entered).

Easier repeat cheats:
To make it easier to repeat a code, such as the money code, first enter the 
code, then make a mistake after what you have repeated. For example enter 
the money cheat, then enter !;!;!;!;!;!: (note the colon at the end instead 
of a semi-colon). The game will respond "Sorry, invalid cheat" but you will 
have the amount that you requested. When you click "OK", the cheat will 
still be at the prompt. Press [Enter] again and click "OK" for another 
repeat of the cheat you entered. 

Magic garbage bag:
The following trick saves the time needed to take the garbage to the 
street. Buy the 30 simolian trash can. Order your Sim to empty it, then 
cancel the order just as they remove the bag from the can. Then, order 
them to pick up the mess that they just created. Your Sim will return the 
full bag to an empty can. Repeat this each time it fills and trash will 
never have be brought outside again. 

Less bills:
Keep an unpaid bill until the mailman delivers the next set of bills. Pay 
the original bill when your mailbox is filled with the next set of bills. 
This should cause the bills inside the mailbox to disappear.
