Yeah, I'll pay for an alignment as I don't have the equipment or know-how to do it myself. Balancing is another thing I will pay for. Our local Super Walmart balances tires for $9 each (on or off the car).

I don't understand enough about the geometry of it to do my own alignment.

That's how I did it the one time. Well instead of angle plates I got some cheap cutting boards and put grease between them. 

Took a while, but I was pretty confident in setting it up right. Took it to Pep Boys and it was all pretty dead on.......No charge for the alignment if it's all green. :P

LOL@ cutting boards and grease. I now have something new to try.

If you ever end up by fate in the Columbus ohio area you're hired.

I can get my alignment within 1/16" and within 1/4 of a degree using string and angle gauge.
I do all of our trucks here EXCEPT the FJ cruiser...screw that I tried let the pros adjust that bad boy.
There are several good youtube videos on how to adjust your toe with string its really easy. The camber adjustments are a little more advanced with the angle gauge, but still do able.
Save so much $$$$ and time and I KNOW where my alignment is

toe is 1/16" in per side (1/8" toe in total) 
Camber is set at 0 degrees (I run big tires, I found 0 works good for me!)
