In The Sims 4, there are four tiers to purchasing extra content beyond the base game. For several years, there were Expansion Packs, Game Packs, and Stuff Packs. As of early March, Kits are now on the menu. For the majority of players, Stuff Packs are the first stop for affordable content that enhances your Sims 4 gameplay.

Tiny Living Stuff
For users who want a new way to build in The Sims, Tiny Living Stuff is vital. This pack allows builders to have a new lot type with three levels, all centered around the size of the home built. The smaller the build is, the more benefits for the sims living there. On top of this, the pack is filled with modern fashion and build items. Watch out for the sometimes fatal murphy bed, though!

While not applicable to everyone, Romantic Garden Stuff is a pack that has very useful applications. This pack focuses on exterior Build/Buy items and some CAS throw-ins.
