How are you getting your money? I'm doing the farming for profit and food, I never buy food any more (unless I'm cooking). I choose my games based on the amount of money I can get. My husband plays home before dark and makes money, I'm not good at it so I go for hungry hog2 and cash cow 2. If you do well in a game, do it in tournament, you get your cash and you might get a cash prize. Always do the kinzcare, you get food and money. Also sell your gem if you don't need it. It's sometimes quite a bit of money.

I also think the W-Shop are a little over-priced; I think it's very difficult for children and teens to earn wads of kinzcash in light of the fact their computer time is so limited because of school work and sports and social activities.

I only buy items when they are on sale, even if it means I have to wait months for something to go on sale, I do. I don't need immediate gratification , and I don't mind letting a room sit unfinished.

Sometimes, I use coupons, but only for super expensive items, or for gifts I want to send to family or friends.

You might try playing Quizzy's World Challenge to earn kinzcash, it adds up fast. And the more you play, the better you will get at the game---that's a promise! It's a little frustrating at first, if you've never played it, but you can get really good very quickly with some practice!

But in general, I do know what you mean: Webkinz World is more expensive than the real world, and that's saying something!

Also, sometimes Arte offers W Shop items at a great price If you see something you need, check the W Shop value. I've gotten things up to 40% off before!

My favorite theme is pirate, which is not that expensive. But I agree with the concept of buying a little at a time, and only as needed or when it goes on sale.

The main reason I'm up to level 6 in Arte's curio shop is that I use Arte's sale w-shop items to build my rooms. Nearly everything I have as furniture was bought through sales, W-shop coupons, or via trades from trophies, click to win and wheel of yum items.

My advice? Plant a couple strawberry gardens, build one cheap bedroom that you like and can stand to look at, and let the money slowly build. Don't forget to do the employment office, Quizzy's daily question, kinzcare, and the Wheel of Wow and Wishing Well.

Buy items only on when they come on sale, a little at a time. If you keep doing that, you will soon find yourself with enough KC to decorate.

When I first got into Webkinz last December, I built my cash up quickly by playing Quizzy's Word Challenge, Zingoz Pop, and answering questions in Quizzzy's Corner. I took every opportunity to do Employment as well. In Fact the more categories you answer in Q Corner, the more jobs are available to you.

I think if everything comes to easily, the appreciation is not as great. I also built up my cash via Trading Cards.

Don't give up, just have fun! Looking at other peoples' rooms can give you ideas, but for some it also makes it more difficult - don't compare your rooms with others, just enjoy what you have.

Have Fun!!

Arte's is fine! They are RARE items!
I have to agree with Gemini....they are RARE! However, I do understand completely about the KC. My biggest thing is that my grandkids are very young and the games are geared more towards older kids which makes it very frustrating for the little ones to win much KC at all.....they would have to play all day and all nite ---- LOL

I guess there is no way to fix that but I do know other sites have games geared more towards the younger ones and I don't think that Ganz is being fair to the little ones. I think the site is great for kids to learn, but they do get frustrated with the amount of KC for the games.

My son is a young child (he can't read well) but as of right now, he has more money that I do. He does all the daily activities and plays random games. He buys all kinds of things. I think it just depends on what you do to get the money. My son only gets a little time on the computer (well, so do I usually)

Talking Wizard Theme

The wizard theme is a wonderful theme. It has floating candles! I think it would have to be one of my top favorites in the house, seriously. It is great!!! I recommend it to anyone. Who has the Funky Girl Theme? I am thinking of giving my latest pet (girl, black dog named Opal) that theme, but I don't know if people like it. I bought a couple things from it already! I know that it's old, but what's wrong with it? Please PM me (and post for other people!)
