I have a challenge that I don't know what to do about. I wish to do some self portraits but I don't have a tripod. My last $15 tripod could barely support my compact camera and when I got my DSLR, the tripod barely stood and was very uneven. I had no choice but to trash it. I do not have any assistant except for some kids that would be happy to either take photos of everything but me or run off with the Camera, and quite honestly I don't want kids running off with my $400 Camera. Do you have any ideas?

Which do you need right now to do what you want? A tripod or a prime lens?

Well, then make like a boy scout, and build a tripod out of some hefty branches and some twine.

Check out some thrift stores/goodwill/salvation army/garage sales.

self timer, and place the camera on a soft bag on top of a car. Set camera on ground and angle up to make you look taller?
