You can make it good by buying the reasonable license if you want the FULL package. :)
John has given you a good idea. However if you cannot purchase the license, you can always use Atmel Studio to develop your programs. It is free and you will get a lot of support here if you need it.
Insha'Allah you will do what is right and good.
If you use CVAVR you skip a lot of required early learning, that is not a good idea, eventually you will have to do the required learning to live without CVAVR and wish you had never gone there to waste your time and money.
Much better not to use CVAVR in the first place, take the time to learn to do things yourself in AS6, slower to start with but leaves you much better prepared in the long term.
Just my opinion, the fee is not reasonable, then on top of that there is the yearly fee just to get bug fixes and obtain what you thought you already paid for many times over but what you get is buggy or simply has things missing which you wont get unless you keep paying yearly edited, everyone happy now.
