Then, about a month ago, I saw a T3i kit with the 18-55 IS II, the 55-250 IS II, and the 50 f/1.8 II all for just $949. It seemed like a great deal! I dunno why, I just ordered it, without really thinking about what I was doing, and after it came I also bought an 18-135 from somebody on ebay, since I've never really cared for the zoom range of the 18-55.

Did I goof up? I forgot what I had learned with the XTi kit. The camera is only as good as the glass, right? Once again, I've got a collection bottom-rung glass. Should I dump it all?

What you have isn't bottom-rung glass. It is the best value for money budget glass and you will have to pay a lot more to better it. There are many examples and posts on this forum with quality pictures from those lenses.

I would suggest you come to grips with your setup before you make spend more.
