My toolkit was a bit more sparse when I started changing my own oil. I had one of those "home handyman" kits. Hammer, screw driver, and an adjustable wrench. I combined that with the bikes mini-toolkit and a catch pan for the oil. Getting off the filter was done by spiking the filter with the screw driver and then taking it off. Messy, but it works on every size filter. Put on the new filter and tight and next time it takes less work to get it off.

Every time I change my oil now I indulge myself with $10 worth of tools. After five years I've got enough where I can change the oil with relative ease.
