I would suggest vegetable gardening, fishing, hunting, or crabbing (if you're in the Pacific Northwest). These are fun hobbies with fringe benefits.

I do live in the northwest and I agree with that to a certain extent, but I have never been fishing when I couldn't have bought the fish at the store for a lot less money. In fact my friend just brought back 5 Salmon from Kodiac, Alaska that cost him over $1,000 per fish!

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU LIKE TO DO?  POSSIBLY YOU CAN DEVELOP SOMETHING FROM THAT.  I LIKE WALKING, READING AND MAKING SCENTED CANDLES.

I like  jogging or walking but I wish I could play a musical instrument. Making money on line is a new exciting hobby.

Playing video games...definitely not just for stereotypes.  They allow you to escape to another world, work on goals, have fun, and stimulate you mentally.

Traveling is another very good hobby.

I would say volunteering I mean that is something that would benefit so many people it would help out a cause and benefit you just as much it feels good to help out others it really does

RC(radio control) there's so many different directions to go, you can go for planes, helicopters, cars and trucks, boats, even jets! there's also gas or electric. large scal, medium scale, mini scale, and micro scale. you can build them yourself or buy them ready to run. there's limitless ways to customize them(higher performance motors and engines, aluminum parts, gearing, etc.). i have a 1/8 scale buggy thats 4 wheel drive and runs on nitro-methane gas that can hit 40-45mph. and i have a 1/24 scale 4 wheel drive electric micro truck than can hit 30mph no problem. and i just got a 1/18 scale electric 4wd mini monster/stadium truck that can go 50+mph! i always wanted to do planes and helis but i'm disabled and don't have good enough coordination/motor control anymore. if you like working on cars/engines but feel overwhelmed or it's too expensive these nitro RCs are the way to go, there's lots of maintenance and things to work on. it can get expensive, but it's fun stuff. if you're good though you can actually do it professionally and make good money. wow i wrote a lot of stuff lol. anyway that's what i like to do.

Very interesting, glad you shared so much.  The last time I remember seeing one of these fuel powered rc cars was in the 80's and I remember being amazed at how fast it went. 

My hobby was collecting Atari 2600 games and I still enjoy playing them even though I don't collect anymore.  My hobbies now are travel(local and far), collecting important newspapers, and bottle caps.

Finding new ways to make money!  PTC's, Blogs, investing in loans, investing in forex, taking aluminum cans to the recycling center, opening new checking accounts for the monetary rewards, buying and fixing up houses,opening off-shore accounts, picking up an occaional side job, cutting a lawn or two, coin collections that appreciate...eveything having to do with money and the accumulation/multiplicaton of it and occasionally spending some of it!

             Make some arts and crafts at home. Sell them and make some money. Making money online is a different story because sometimes you win...sometimes you lose your money to scammers who run away with the money you give them.
