    Since getting my Touch, my iTunes addiction has skyrocketed.

    Since getting my Touch (April '08), I've spent $96.30 of my total $283.55 in iTunes purchases.

    Ridiculous? You betcha. Let's just hope the girlfriend doesn't find that number out ;)

    Get a new girlfriend. :)


    I haven't spent that much, but I can see how easy and addictive it is to buy stuff on itunes with a Touch. I'm considering something like maybe one small gift card a month, like an allowance, and forcing myself to not exceed that.

    Really? Unless they're eating off the dollar menu, I doubt it's that cheap! :)

    it may not be much to y'all, but that's more than I should be spending!

    You'd better kick that iTunes addiction. Instead, buy your songs from Amazon.com. It's pretty much like iTunes except the songs are .mp3 files and they are DRM-free.

    I've spent a little over $25. The only reason I even spent that much is because I got iTunes giftcards. I get all my music elsewhere, along with TV shows and movies.

    While I don't actually get my (digital) music from Amazon, if I were you I would. Cheaper, mp3's, no DRM, and they're at higher bit rates, right?

    My purchased items consists of 558 items + 47 apps. So I have spent well over $600 on iTunes in 2 years. Right now I am getting music from my local library--its cheap, and it has better sound quality.:D

    I've spent somewhere over $200 at Itunes in the last 6 months. If the Apps keep coming I'll probably spend more than that in the next 6 months.
