Broke Millionairre ... Update 1

The Broke Millionaire.

So, Red is here with a mission to complete a challenge that I am making up as I go along!!
She has to go from being totally broke, to becoming a millionaire.
She, and her family, have to remain unemployed and make money however they can.
Becoming millionaires might not happen in her lifetime ...
however, her family should get there eventually.



- To have 2 million simoleons plus in the family fund
- To have built a luxury family home

The house and lot must contain ....

at least three stories high with a basement.

1 kitchen
1 living room
1 study/library
1 laundry room
1 Music room
1 dining room
1 nursery
5+ bedrooms
1 Swimming pool
1 Greenhouse
A family Cemetery.

To own all three lots on the island.

Each generation heir must complete their Lifetime Wish.

Red has landed on Shark Island, which is a fairly deserted island that only contains three lots.
  • Red's empty lot
  • a mini resort
  • a Cemetry (when I've built it) cough!!
 I am calling it a resort, but it really isn't one yet!  Maybe when the family become millionaires maybe!!
The resort is a tourist trap firstly,  to distract all the annoying tourists and paps away from Red's empty lot.  However it will also give her access to some creature comforts at the beginning of the challenge when she has absolutely NOTHING!!!!

At the resort, she will have the use of a pit fire - to eat.  A shower to keep herself clean.  Benches and loungers to sleep on and a toilet. Oh and the dumpsters!!
She is going to need all these things until she starts making enough money to start setting up a decent place for herself and her future family to live!!

There is a cafe inside the resort, but she is NOT allowed to eat there, and for her first week on the island she will NOT be allowed to use buy mode to buy anything that she might need.

Day 1

There is only one way for her to start making any money on this island at the moment and that is Dumpster Diving.
She gets to do five dives a day, and can keep what she can use, and sell the rest.

The foreign tourists are already piling onto the island.

The downfalls of dumpster diving ...

Very smelly pits and a daily puking session!!

Her five dumpster dives are done for today, so all she has to do for the rest of the day is hang around the resort and do a bit of fishing so that she can eat.

Red:    Mmmm Foreign Men!!
Julie:   Keep your eyes OFF the men!!!  No babies are allowed until you can put a roof over their heads, and can at least afford a cot for them to sleep in!!
Red:     What about my Lifetime Wish, I need to get started on it!!
Julie:   You are a fairy so you have plenty of time and like it ever takes you very long to knock out five babies!!

and does she ever listen ... No!!!!
She sees a naked man, and that is her cue to get naked too!!!
Not that it did her any good in this case!!

Mr naked man's skinny dipping session, that lasted all day, did not end well.
He drown!!

In comes the Grim Reaper.

Red is like a fly around shit!!
Grimmie appears and so does she, because he is one of her favourite men to play with.
He had the good sense to vanish straight after collection his victim.

Red:     Feed me!!!!
Julie:    You had better get fishing quickly before Grimmie returns to take you away!!
Red:     I am way too hungry to do any fishing!!
Julie:    Well you know the rule, you are NOT eating from the cafe, not that you can with a family fund of $0!!!

The magically appearing Marshmallows will have to do for now.

A pretty pathetic first day of dumpster diving did not get her a lot - nothing useful anyway!!  Especially the wall clock and curtains that she has no wall to put them on!!
It is all sold.

Red:     As I have some money now, can I go to the cafe and get myself a cheese toastie?
Julie:    No!!!  Unless you pull a cooker and fridge out of the dumpster, you are living on fish for the foreseeable future!  So get fishing!!
Red:     I hate you!!!
Julie:    Trust me ... the feeling is very mutual!

The marshmallows filled a hole for a little while, enough for Red to get a few hours of fishing done. she managed to catch a tiny little anchovy for her breakfast in the morning.

Red's bed for the night!!

Day 2

Julie:   "Hey I said NO EATING CAFE FOOD!!!"
Red:     "Well you can not go off to feed your cats, leave your game running and expect me to listen to your horrible rules when I am starving!!"
Julie:   "Huh!  You have a tiddly little fish that you could have cooked!!  Day two and you are already breaking rules!!  Think about going anywhere near that food register again and I will turn this place into a book store instead, and extend your no buy mode to two weeks!!"
Red:     Fine!!  (Huff)

Red gets today's dumpster diving done early, because she does not really have a lot else to do yet.

After her shower and puking session, she takes another nap.

Collecting seeds to plant.

and flowers to sell!!

Her second  day of dumpster diving got her a few cupboards, lamp and guitar, which she kept.

The tiny cemetery is now built.

It is amazing how a minute little anchovy, becomes a huge chunk of fish when its being cooked!!

Not having a proper bed to sleep in has her constantly napping.

Day 3

Day 3 started while it was still pretty dark.

After doing her dumpster diving, she cleaned up.
Then spooks herself when she ended up taking yet another nap on the bench in the cemetery!!
Not that there are any ghosts on this island yet to spook her!

Red now has a few chairs and a rug to go with her cupboards.
Everything else has been sold.

Red now has the rebel reputation from all the dumpster diving she has be doing.
So the street art bag and the megaphone are now in her possession as a reward.

So now she is a very happy bunny - spray painting the grass, until she gets an easel!

Those plants are not going to survive the night, if that deer continues to hang around!!

The first bills already stung her for $26.

Red:    I should not have to pay THAT MUCH for an empty space with just a mailbox and that silver contraption on it!!
Julie:   Unfortunately that is life!! 
Red:    I wander how much that silver contraption sells for??
Julie:   The Time Portal.  Is NOT to be sold!!

Red:     Mmm I wander what is on that little island out there?
Julie:    Nothing!!  Do not even think about going to investigate, because this island is called Shark Island for a reason.  It is surrounded by sharks and the water is dangerous to swim in!!
Red:     How dangerous?
Julie:    Very!!!!

At the end of day three she has a grand total of £1,266 in her family fund.
