lidiqnata said "it's time to start thinking what our Young Adults need for living on their own!". The first thing that popped into my head was money and what uni/college student wouldn't like their very own Money Tree. Here is the Aspiration Rewards Money Tree in LACK coloured pots. You can find my AL Wood matching recolours HERE. If your Sim doesn't want to wait until they have enough aspiration points, you can always use Sophie-David's Buyable Aspiration & Career Rewards for Lot Builders found HERE.

"Money trees are cheap in aspiration points, so Sims who have plenty of aspiration points can afford plenty of money trees. A money tree can be used indefinitely ... as long as it is kept watered. If it is not watered periodically it will wither away.

When a Sim's aspiration level is gold or higher, that Sim will be able to harvest forty Simoleons from the money tree. However, if the Sim's aspiration level is green, there is a 50% chance they will only receive one simoleon during harvest. If it is red, there is an 80% chance of only harvesting one simoleon. When it fails, it doesn't penalize or harm the user, it just yields §1 instead of §40. Whether the Sim receives §40 or §1, harvesting money from the money tree fulfills the want to earn some money.

Children can harvest from the money tree, and it is a fine source of income for child Sims.

Tips & Tricks Edit:

Although at first glance it may seem like a money tree isn't worth forking over 3000 Aspiration points for a mere §40, the money tree can actually be a key component for keeping Fortune Sims happy on a consistent basis. Spend a while saving up on Aspiration points, and then have your Fortune Sim use their hard earned points on as many money trees as possible. Once your money-hungry Sim has a small farm of at least 10 of these trees, the profit jumps to a potential §400 every 8 hours, or §1200 per day! For Sims that Want to earn a lot of money, money trees can certainly give a lot of extra cash to pad their wallets with.
When the Money Tree is ready for harvest, neighbors can and WILL take the money from a money tree. To avoid this, keep the money tree locked away from other Sims."

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!
