Animal Crossing Tip: pay off Harv’s Island stores ASAP

I’m Bobby Jack, I’m a big fan of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and I’m putting together a series of tips for the game.

If you’ve got a large cash reserve, though, why not pay off almost the full amount up-front?

Returning each day, you’ll only need a single bell from now on—much more convenient!
