Want to know if its needed or not. Would hate to carry this around everywhere. And do you see a purpose of having a full size + a mini one? Where the mini you can carry everywhere.

I dont want to buy if im not going to use it.

It very much depends on what you're shooting. If you're likely to be using slow shutter speeds, a tripod would be good, but for snapshots in good light you'd be fine without. When you say "carrying around everywhere" it makes me think that you're generally shooting 'out and about' in good light, and that a tripod isn't an absolute must for you. Buy one when you feel you need one.
