1500MB may well be enough considering you have 3GB of RAM.
I would suggest upping it to 3000MB next time if you get any further critical memory warnings.

Thumb drives may indeed suit you best depending on how much data you want to store. However, if you are thinking of buying a number of them to meet your needs it's still worth checking how much it's going to cost you per GB.
Here in the UK it works out approx 1/GB for thumb drives compared to 1/10GB for portable external drives.
Added to that, the external drive is likely to be much faster and last longer, not to mention being more versatile.
Granted they are more bulky, but are still impressively small in the 2.5in form.
