Mastering is a pretty interesting process, especially if you read a lot into it. If you want to learn about mastering, a good place to start is The Mastering Engineer's Handbook. If you just want to play with mastering a pretty standard chain is:
Multiband compressor - Linear phase EQ - Limiter

A couple small tips; louder isn't always better, definitely read into dithering and if you're exporting to a compressed format it can mess with the 0dB level (e.g 0dB as a wav will clip when exported as mp3)

Best of luck with trying to master it's pretty fun  Coffee

If you can't afford to buy great speakers and have them in a natural environment, I recommend simply listening to your tracks on lots of different systems. Listen in the car, lounge room home theater, ear buds, head phones etc. and just take notes and make subtle changes.
