Nikon D3100 with 18-55mm Lens + Close-Up Macro Lens Set
I'm very very new to the DSLR World and just bought my Nikon D3100 a couple of weeks ago. The only lens I have right now is the 18-55mm lens that came with the body when I purchased it.
I don't have the cash for an additional lens right now, so my mom thought she would do something nice and got me a "Close-Up Macro Lens Set 55mm" from amazon.com. Now, I don't know if I'm just an idiot or what the deal is...but none of the lens attachments in the lens set seem to fit. I thought you would just need to screw them onto the top of the camera lens. Perhaps I'm doing it wrong?
If anyone would hep that would be really awesome. Thanks.

You have the right idea. You just need to make sure you have the correct filter sizes. The 18-55mm lens takes a 52mm filter (check your manuals to be sure).

I did some more online research and it is indeed 52mm, but there are adapters for about $3-$4 that will allow me to use the 55mm ones from what I understand.

Let us know how your Macro Lens Set works out. I would love to see some photographs with the Macro Lens. I can't afford another big lens and have been thinking about adding a macro fliter lens to what I already have.
