Weight lifting at home can be pretty inexpensive to start doing. Check out your local library to see if they have any of the videos or dvds other people have mentioned and try them out for free. There may also be good books you could take out, one of my roommates had a "weight lifting for dummies" book that explained how to put together a routine pretty clearly.

Also, you can start out by using cans of food or filled water bottles as weights. It sounds funny, but when I'm doing something new or difficult, a 32 oz water bottle makes a pretty convenient 2 pound weight.
