Unzip them and put them in the appropriate folder. The download should come with a readme file that tells you where they go.

Unless told otherwise, most objects will go here: C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\Downloads or in a sub-folder.

Otherwise, they will go into one of the sub-folders here:

C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\GameData

Hi, i think you can try to download the file maid to help you install all the objects. You will only need to install your homes yourself.

Unzip it by right clicking and selecting Extract all... on the menu. Then it shoul come up with a box with a small text box. Press the Browse... button next to that and find either the downloads folder or objects folder. Unzip and you will have the object in sims!
