You could buy a dirt-cheap/used PC, add some disks and 1gbit network, and setup a scheduled backup over the network of the most important things.
I personally don't have anything worth saving that's more than a few gigs, so for that I just use a small usb-powered harddrive. For the really important stuff like documents and programming projects etc which come below 500mb, I use Mercurial (version control software - intended for programming) and upload revisions to an online service (just 1gb storage).
