Help me decide: should I keep the eBay listing as is and include the basic lenses for the $280 and put the $ towards the 15-85mm or sell the body by itself and keep the lenses until I'm a better photographer and then buy the 15-85mm?

If the 18-55 mm lens is the image stabilized version ("IS" denominated) it is a good lens and you can well keep it well for learning the basics. If the "IS" is lacking, go ahead and sell it. Not only would you be missing the very useful stabilization, but the older non IS version is greatly optically inferior.
