Picture of Start your own Impatiens inside during the winter
Taking cuttings from impatiens, or many other annuals, is easy and can help scratch the gardener's itch during the off-season.  The key is the donor plant that you must remember to bring indoors before the frost kills it.  Beyond that, the process is fairly cheap and easy.  
Materials
mature, donor plant
plastic 4 or 6-packs
scissors, box cutter or other sharp knife
Perlite, Vermiculite or sand
rooting powder
potting soil
