An electric coffee bean grinder works great -- available at most dept. stores for $12 - $20.

For some of the herbs you can use a blender, for some you can use a coffee grinder, there are professional grinders you can buy, The Herb Pharm, use to sell some tools. Look in the herbal magizines there are probably adds for equiptment catalogs .
