For external storage, go with USB 3. It is much faster than USB 2 and far cheaper than Thunderbolt. There are a lot of options to choose from. The cheapest are basic 3 or 4 TB single spindle hard disks, around $100. After that, you can ssd for higher speed or RAID for higher reliability (two mirrored drives).

Separately from that, you can buy any basic USB 3 drive and use it as a Time Machine backup drive. This is literally a fully automatic backup; you just plug in the drive and do nothing more.
