Spending more on App Store than iTunes Music Store?

My napster-seared conscience greatly inhibits my music spending, but I fear measures need to be taken to reign in my App store spending. Having just ordered an iPad I'm afraid the more-expensive HD apps will be an even more expensive habit, but perhaps it's the accumulation of painless $0.99 purchases that are the biggest issue.

I have had an app moritorium for a couple weeks. I bought like $50 worth of apps, mostly games, the first week I had a wifi iPad. On principle I will not buy apps like Angry Birds HD that are just blown up versions of the iPhone app for 5x the price.

I rarely buy music from iTunes. I still buy a significant portion of my music on vinyl.

I spend much more on apps. I do buy itunes gift cards at 20% off so at least i'm getting the apps at a 20% discount. Sometimes costco/staples/best buy have deals on the itunes gift cards. When the deals reach 20% off i load up on them. I've never seen them less than 20%.
