To do it properly you really need tapes or an online backup service like Amazon Glazier. But since the budget doesn't allow for that Charlie's solution is probably the best you're going to get.
I would suggest to get at least 2 USB drives for backups and swap them every other week. That way you always have a copy offsite. For the actual backup process you'll need to use something like robocopy with logging so you can check the integrity of your backups.
