Assuming you installed in the default location, you can do

sudo chown -R chrisp /usr/local/texlive

and then, without changing anything to root's environment, simply run tlmgr as
chris (without sudo). This way, the user crhisp is the administrator of the TL

That's what I recommend (and personnaly use) for single-user machines.
