There are plenty of small digital scopes for cheap. Not to mention software that will let you use the audio in on a computer for some basic scope measurements. Also plenty of used CRT scopes at give away prices.
For a modern digital storage scope at a good price, have a look at the Rigol DS1054Z. A nice 4 channel scope you can find new for $300 on sale. A nice set of features and with some software mods you can find online, you can add a bunch of extra features. I've had one for a number of years and it still performs flawlessly. It seems like every electronics Youtuber and his brother have one of these on their bench, too.
