A tune up is VERY easy to do. Like willwren said, I would also suggest a o2 sensor, you can pick one of those up at any parts store, installing them is just a few turns of a wrench and a few wires. As for plugs, while you are at that store getting the 02 sensor, grab 6 NGK TR55 spark plugs, they are usually only a buck and a half a piece, installing them is also only a few turns of a spark plug socket (if you dont have one of those, you will need one, or just borrow one from a friend). How many miles are on this car? The spark wires may need replacing also.
Next thing would be to check the air filter to se if it is dirty, this can really cut down on mileage. I would reccomend replacing it with a K&N drop in, but if you don't have the bux, then something comparible will work.
Also, you may want to replace your PCV valve.
