Do I Need/Should I get a 3 qt, 4 qt, or no saucepan?

I'm tempted by the current Demeyere prices at SLT. I know I really don't need a 3 qt or 4 qt saucepan, but would it make my life easier to have one?

I currently have a 2 qt & 3.5 qt saucier (edit: I do not have to and may not keep this, but as of right now, I've got it, even though it's not my favorite), and on the way I've got a 24cm 4.7L? Fissler sauce pot (2 short handles). I've also got a 1.5 & 2 qt saucepan.

My needs are aspirational for this pot. I have no current cooking things that I feel the need for a larger saucepan, but that's not to say I won't in the future and if I need it in the future, I'll be upset for passing on good prices.

So, is the 3/4 qt size going to be helpful in the future? If so, is the 3 qt or 4 qt more versatile?
