Well, your basic options are:
1) Don't fix, get a new phone
2) Don't fix, live with cracked screen
3) Fix, DIY
4) Fix, get someone else to do it
I'd get someone else to fix it, or get a new phone, alternatively live with a cracked screen until I can afford a new phone.
How much would a new screen cost you, compared to a new phone, or a used one? I mean, if the screen, shipping and cost to get it fixed would pretty much equal to how much a Note II would cost you used from ebay, then that might be an option to think about if you're afraid to ruin it.
