I have a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.. I'd like to get wider than 24mm sometimes.. is 18mm enough? Would I start to feel like the two lenses were overlapping? I'm worried about it being excessive in terms of both having to buy the lens, and carrying an extra lens in the bag.. should I save up for a 14-24mm?

I have both. There isn't a lot of difference between 18mm and 24mm and there's too much overlap. Yet the reason I keep both is because the 18-35 is about 3 times lighter than the 24-70, and I use it when I want to go light and small. The 24-70 is my event lens... the 18-35 is more of a hiking/landscaping lens. Both lenses serve different purposes for me and are not meant to compete with each other.
