If you're using liquid yeast, you should almost always make a starter. I switched to mainly dry yeast because I'm rather lazy and would forget to make the starter. I typically do a packet and a half of dry yeast for every batch. Yesterday I reused some slurry that I racked a beer off of. Going to try and time my batches so I can keep doing that. Saves some money per batch.
