I have two SB400s and two SB600s and have no idea what life would be like without a slave. Having all SBs just adds to the versatility.
Beginners will need to fool around a little with a slave if its their first one but digital photos are "free" and practice, practice, and practice is what's needed in an environment like you think you'll be using the slave.
I love shooting kids' birthday parties and portraits using three of my SBs and keep the extra one in reserve. Acquired over time they haven't broken the budget.
Just remember to practice, practice, and practice.
