One lens isn't always the most convenient option

Let's face it, the 18-200mm is big and pretty heavy lens for carrying around all the time (especially if you put it on a Rebel body). It's very tempting to have that range, but there will be times when you want to go with a smaller, lighter lens. The slight IQ advantages of going with the 18-55/55-250 combo over the 18-200 are probably not enough for you, but you should also consider the convenience of being able to go light with just the 18-55mm.
