Tips and Tricks
Keep yourself upgraded as to what you need to buy as some things can be bought only in particular places;
When the price is low or quite reasonable, buy big amounts of the ingredients - it'll save your money on traveling;
Check the prices for the products that can be bought in several places. The prices change so it's better to buy something you are not lacking yet for less money now, than pay more later. The same is with selling your products.
