I learned the hard way that cheap extension tubes (the ones that do not have contacts to adjust the aperture) are a waste of money. For those that only want to play with macro occasionally or those who don't want to spend a lot of money, I'd suggest trying out a Raynox 250. It's basically a lens that attaches to the filter threads of your regular lens. It has it's quirks, but it's cheap (under $80) and it works. I usually attach it to a cheap 55-250mm that I bought. It won't give you award winning photographs but it does let you explore the macro world a bit.
Here are some shots that I took with the 55-250mm at it's minimum focusing range and/or the Raynox.
