  1. I just started 6 weeks ago and I’ve gotten 2 check for a total of 💵2,200…this is the best decision I made in a long time! “Thank you for giving me this extraordinary opportunity to make extra money from home. This extra cash has changed my life in so many ways, thank you!”…….GOOD LUCK
    🙂 AND GOOD LUCK.:)

  2. Building digital LEGO creations. Physical LEGO sets can be expensive, but there’s a piece of software called [BrickLink Studio](https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/download.page) that’s free. This lets you take virtual LEGO pieces (every shape available) and assemble them. You have infinite pieces to play with so you can grab the most obscure bricks and stack a dozen of them together.

    Once you’re done, the software can generate a realistic looking image of your creation. For example, here’s a [robotics lab](https://i.imgur.com/XSOBOhw.png) that I designed for a minifigure that I have.

    If you really want your creation to be a physical item, the software can help you upload the parts list to BrickLink and you can buy the pieces. (Either new or used to save money.) It will even estimate how much physically building the set will cost you.

  3. Depending on the area you live in – bird watching. Okay, I know it sounds like an old person hobby (well, it kinda is). For me, it such a challenge but helpful for my ADHD as it helps me practice mindfulness and gets me out to observe natural surroundings. And my local Audubon society has been a good resource to learn more about the native birds in my area.

    Some people throw down a lot of cash, set up bird feeders and watch birds from their home. But for me, I got a local bird guide and go out hiking around nature trails.

  4. Photography. No starting costs as you’ll most likely carry around a nice camera already and there’s a bunch of free tutorials around. On the far end it can be a black hole for money.

  5. Tetris. Super accessible game, it’s on basically every game console, it’s not graphic intensive, it’s usually not too expensive (tetr.io is literally free) and there’s a decent community for it.

  6. Role playing games is one of the cheapest hobbies I know, you just need a handful of dice, a pen and some paper. There are *tonnes* of free rule sets legally available online. The rest is just about your imagination.

    It’s a very active hobby, the only hard part is finding a group to play with, which can require a bit of sleuthing to find where they gather in your city and some persistence when trying to find a group.

  7. I mean horse riding is very expensive but some riding schools offer free lessons if you muck out their horses. You get loads of exercise mucking out and a free riding lesson!

  8. I have a friend who is a bird watcher. He seems to love it and he can be as active and adventuresome as his body and his budget will allow.

    So you can do it for free and just use your phone or you can get binoculars and you can travel or just use your yard or whatever.

    I have enjoyed [his various sites and blogs](https://www.whatbirdsareinmybackyard.com/p/about.html?m=1) over the years. We used to play cards with him and his wife before they moved away from our area. I miss hearing his stories in person. But it’s nice now and then when I hear an unusual bird song to think of him. 🙂

  9. Writing.

    Doesn’t matter if you are any good. Doesn’t matter if you want to use a keyboard or a pen. Doesn’t matter if you have either of those things. I’ve literally written haiku on stones in my garden with smaller rocks. It can cost effectively nothing but time. Don’t have much time? Write haiku, poems, songs… Hell write a word and think about the next word for tomorrow’s session.

    Only advice is only write for yourself. If you write with the goal of making an awesome series of novels that will propel you to stardom and start an everlasting film franchise, you will not write. Write because you enjoy doing it, like figuring out your plots, and love interacting with your characters.

  10. I am surprised no one has said running or calisthenics yet. Dirt cheap hobbies that are definitely active. Plus the gains you can make are incredible.
