You could call some of you local stores if they could lend(or rent) you a colorimeter for a day or two. Most stores use them for calibrating cameras etc and probably have lots of them just lying around.

And the spyders aren't really that good to be honest, a licensed calibrator would do a much better job(but would of course be more expensive). But if you want a meter, the eye-one is the one to go for.

Here's a good place to get you started(I know there is a lot of ads on that site, but it's definitely one of the best guides out there):
