Determining the charge or mass of an electron

I have to design an experiment that determines either the charge or mass of a single electron, something like was millikan did, for under $500 give or take a bit. We have some equipment, but not much, already. The design has to be innovative and doesn't have to be, or shouldn't be, exactly like millikan's experiment. Any ideas?
It occured to me that you can find the e/m ratio using Thomson's apparatus. Do you have a CRT you could use?
