    You could...

    1) tie a rope around your waist
    2) put on a weight belt and tie the rope around the weight belt
    3) build a harness out of the rope (use google to find out how)

    There are other options (real harness, weight vest, etc), but the above 3 are probably the cheapest.

    I was going to make my own sled, then after I figured it all out, decided it was still cheaper to just buy one. I bought the sled from elitefts and I just put the straps through a weight belt.

    Anthony's Sandbag Recipe
    100lbs of sand
    2 burlap bags from your local "feeds and needs" store
    1 roll of duct tape
    Directions: pour 50lbs of sand into plastic grocery bag, tie top. Place another grocery bag over this and tie. Repeat 4-5 times. Cut burlap bag so you can wrap the plastic sand bag twice. Duct tape the hell out of it, make sure corners are well taped. Repeat process for a 30lbs bag and 20lbs bag. Total cost: about $8 for sand and a roll of duct tape. They'll give you the burlap bags.

    Anthony's Sled Recipe
    1 Rope
    1 Old Tire
    2 Pieces of 2x6 wood, length to fit within tire (this creates a shelf to place sandbags)
    Directions: Place wood in tire. Tie rope around wood. Place sandbags on wood. Tie rope around waist. Pull. Total cost: maybe $5 for the rope and wood. Get an old tire from a local garage, it saves them a disposal fee.
