Need some specific short term goals

I spend lots of my free time watching TV and surfing the internet. I feel like I am wasting my life. I am looking for free or very low cost programs like "how to learn/make X in 30 days!" with daily or weekly milestones. I need to see very concrete progress or I will just give up.

Stuff I have done in the past but didn't stick with - writing, photography, painting, drawing, learning a language
Stuff I'd like to do - crafty things, learning to program, learning to cook
I have a hard time starting or finishing anything because of perfectionism/anxiety and because I don't perceive any progress. I feel like actually being able to develop a skill would help my really low self-esteem. Please note that I am BROKE. I would love to learn to knit but I can't get over the thought that spending money on yarn is a horrible waste of money.
note: I'm not interested in fitness/exercise stuff.
