Time machine makes a back-up which you can implement on an installed system, you cannot boot off a Time Machine Backups Folder.
What bobtomay described is making a full bootable duplicate.

As for a cheap ext. drive, I recommend a again what bobtomay said a Western Digital "My Passport", I believe they come in 250- and 320 GB, respectively around 75$ and 100$ (new).
