Hi all,

So I've come to conclude I'm boring, lol. I don't have any real hobbies that I love, and everything that I think that I might like costs money.

Does anyone have any ideas of hobbies that you enjoy but doesn't cost and arm and a leg? I'd be interested in what you have to say :)

honestly, $18 seems like a lot! And I assume skis are not included? If I had cross country skis I would try to find somewhere free, but i don't have those.

You have all convinced me! I'm going to give knitting/ crocheting a try!!! I've always loved the idea of knitting/ crocheting a really warm blanket for myself and as gifts so maybe I'll make that a goal!

Bex, Another, different kind of thing is to learn more about investing and how to pick good stocks/mutual funds, etc. When I was in high school we did a little exercise where we each invested a fake $10,000. It was fun to learn how to research this and thisis a hobby that could keep you warm in other ways...crocheting is good too...but I wanted to put this out there too. SJ

I hate that $18 is expensive to me. :(
But someday when I am debt free it won't seem that way right?! :)

HI, I don't have lot of time to read other people's replies, so sorry if it was suggested before. I have couple of suggestions, cooking from scratch - I love this one because not only because I love cooking but also because I find it relaxing. There are softwares that you can download for free and create your own cookbook.
