Your version of getting crafty might be limited to stickers and colored pencils, but it's never too late to expand your horizons, especially if branching out could lead to saving some cash. During this season of cocktail parties and family gatherings, consider that finding out what everyone has been up to could inspire you to pick up a money-saving hobby. Ask around about what the other guests enjoy doing outside of the office and you might be surprised at the answers — even Kate Hudson is getting in on the DIY gifting fun.
At a press conference for Bride Wars, the actress told People that she's giving homemade gifts for the holidays and said, "I think it’s a really weird time and I think that everyone is feeling it. We’ve always been pretty crafty anyway. We all knit. The girls knit. This year I’m doing these great big knit . . . well, actually I shouldn’t even talk about it because I can’t say it!"
Why not include a new, money-saving hobby to your list of resolutions for the New Year? Are there any hobbies that you'd like to add to your repertoire?
