Question: Windshield crack

I just recently noticed a small crack in my windshield, no bigger than an inch long, and I'm worried that it will spread. I'm tight on cash so I really don't want to replace the entire windshield. (How much would that be for a 04 Honda civic?). I was looking at the repair kits that only cost nearly $10 but I'm worried they won't keep it from spreading. How much does it cost for a mechanic to fix the crack? Help pleasee!
