Save your money and do it right the first time.

Ask friends if they have a grease gun you can borrow.

Do you have a Harbor Freight store near you? You can pick up grease guns below $20.

Quality can be hit or miss, but if you're not wrenching for a living, I'm sure it'd work.

Not sure what vehicle you want to grease, but Hondas have not been built with any grease fittings for a long time. Now some replacement parts for Honda have grease fittings, so take a look first.

Can you probably get away with not using a grease gun, but you will need something that fits over the grease gun fitting tight. From there you will need to attach something like a big plastic syringe. Fill the big plastic syringe (maybe a cooking tool), with your grease and see if you can push it into the fitting.

Otherwise maybe try getting some Spray Wax Lube. Usually used on motorcycles. It comes out of the can as a liquid, but then gets really tacky and thickens up. That way it can get into the joints when its thin enough, but when you use it, it will stay in place.
