Money Tip: Learn How to Do Something New This Weekend

Self-sufficiency is the biggest asset you can have during this down economy. That means not borrowing money from your credit card carrier, but it also includes daily tasks that you often rely on others to complete. While you're spending more time at home over the weekend, apply a few free hours to honing new skills that could also save you money.

I hate to admit it, but I don't know how to sew a button. Pathetic, right? There's a button on my Winter coat that won't stop coming loose, and I keep making silly trips to the dry cleaner to have it "professionally" reattached. In order to eliminate this unnecessary expense, as well as future money- and time-wasting trips, I'm officially going to learn how to sew a button.

Picking up a new skill or honing an old one could be fun, like trying to recreate a dish served at one of your favorite places to eat. What could you work on this weekend that would ultimately save you money?
