I get a lot of comments about HOW I make my gold considering I play on a low pop RP realm maybe 1-2h a day - it's not magic, I spent a LOT of time listening and observing those with more knowledge than me (@SamadanPlaysWoW @BilisOnyxia @RethRethReth) and learning my server market— GirlGoblin (@GirlGoblin1) November 25, 2019

101st ABN AIR ASSAULT!
I sell pets since it only costs 1s to post them and you can keep reposting without really losing a profit until they sell, and they do sell eventually. I also make and sell bags from Embersilk and up. Netherweave on my servers is no longer profitable since allied races get a bunch of 20 slot bags and its real easy to buy a Level Boost with gold which also gives a bunch of 20 slot bags. Also run old raids on any toon that can solo it easily, killing everything and vendoring the old content stuff. I can come out of a raid (depending on the raid) between a thousand to a few thousand gold.Ive tried the gathering mats route and its just boring and tedious, and I get nothing out of it other than gold. I prefer to maximize my time by multi-tasking. Farming sellable pets allows me to collect pets (or AP if its Islands) I dont have while making gold. Farming raids lets me get gear appearances, chances for pets and mounts, and achievements in addition to gold. On occasion I will do the Emissary that rewards gold.There are plenty of ways to get gold, its just a matter of being frugal in your spending. If you buy the newest shiny and must have, you're not going to get to that 5 million to buy that Brutosaur mount. Set aside a weekly allowance, what you need for raid and personal use and save the rest for whatever it is you're after.
My trick for controlling my spending is keeping the bulk of my gold in my AH alt's bank guild. I keep 10K on each toon for expenses, but if I want something more expensive than that, I need to go through a few steps to get the gold to the toon that wants to spend it. This provides a time for reflection on whether or not I truly want to spend the gold, or if it is just something that looks shiny and new right now. This has worked for me for a few years, now, so it has just become a habit to mail any extra gold above 10K on a toon to my AH alt. :-) I am still guilty of splurging now and then on mounts or pets, but overall I try to be responsible.
How I used to make gold before I had to stop playing for a while, or as much:Look out for 2K Emissaries on all my 120 alts.Run last boss of WoD and MoP Raids on 120s weekly.I stopped doing any Garrison stuff when I switched all my characters to gathering.
Not just the 1st, but it was also effective after midnight pacific on the 30th, and after 7 pacific this morning. And if you dont log in until tomororw's dailies, you can eke out one more day (or two if you're efficient) - a total of 4-5 days worth of 35 percent bonus
