I do video game hacking (have a hacked PS2, PSP, and 360)
I'm good with computers (have to be for game console hacking)

Really those hobbies cost me minimal moneys.

Brewing
Gardening
Photography

Computers - not so much a hobby as a necessity for work

I've also got 3 chainsaws, but never considered it a hobby - just need to get the firewood in each year and the target trees kept getting bigger.

Babies are the BEST! (back me up here, guys.) You can manage the other hobbies... You'll just need less sleep...

Enjoy your baby-time. They do grow up so fast.

Cheers,
Michael

Computers (mostly work anymore. I just don't want to spend money on mine)
Car Restoration (69 Mustang Hardtop, 59 Edsel Ranger 4-door Hardtop)
Brewing (current time and money waster)
Other assorted projects related to making things for other hobbies.

Really, Brewing has taken over for me. I now have a garage and a good set of tools to work on my cars, but still have not started working on the mustang since it came up here this spring. With house projects to finish and kids' activities, it's hard to find time for everything. I'm planning a Brown Ale to brew hopefully tomorrow, and I've been meaning to start welding on the car since forever, but tonight, while I'm not prepping to brew, I'll be working on the Snow Thrower in anticipation of this coming winter season. And maybe I'll either put the fabric on the Mustang Seats, or take down the old frame rail from upstairs and weld the brace from that, onto the Mustangs new frame rail.
