toe-in adjustment at home

Guys.....I dont now about other people but I am sick of paying $50 plus for a wheel alignment each year. I am finding the camber and caster never need adjusting. I am told this only requires adjusting if involved in an accident.
However, my tyres always seem to scrub out on the outside front left on both my EB and EF wagons. I must be a slow learner but this has been going on for 11 years or so. I seem to never get the full life of a tyre.
When I have wheel alignments, it is only the toe-in that they seem to adjust ( according to the computer print out sheet). I feel I could do this myself. I remember doing toe-in adjustments to large mine trucks many years ago. It was about 6 mm positive. We marked the wheel with chalk at 3 O'Clock, measured the distance accross the front of the two front tyres, then drove the vehicle forward half a tyre revolution and remeasured the distance accross the inside edges of the two front tyres. The problem is..... I am not sure which tyre I would need to adjust the toe-in. How would I be able to line the tyre up straight on both sides before determining which of the two front tyres needs the toe-in adjustment. Any thoughts. Thanks
