Help me!! I'm addicted to apps!!

I can't help myself. I'm addicted to the shopping process. I have a few app shoppers designed to watch the price of apps you want, and when the price changes, a notification is sent.

I have saved some serious money on art apps I've acquired.

So, with the money I was able to save, I started to shop for more art apps.

Then I started to shop for handwriting notes app.

**Let me just say that the writepad for iPad is THE best handwriting app, followed closely by notes plus. The writepad really does "learn" your handwriting in a short period of time. Creepy and cool at the very same time!!!**

Then, I started to watch to see when brand new art apps popped up for sale. Sometimes brand new apps are a great bargain. So I watch the "what's new" list - constantly!!

Ooop, gotta go...just got the good news that one of the apps on my wish list is on sale!!!

This constantly changing app store reminds me of playing the game "whack-a-mole" - except instead of whacking the little pop up creatures, I am constantly monitoring apps-waiting for good apps to pop up.

Haven't slept in days...

Don't have time to floss...

Saved a bunch of money on apps-some I haven't opened after having them a few weeks.

It occurred to me just now that I am an app hoarder. At least litters and litters of kittens, bugs, children, spouses, half eaten jars of peanut butter, etc. won't be found in my mess of apps.

I suspect my compulsive app behavior will not land me an episode of "Hoarders". I have never seen a whole episode because I find the show disgusting.

My brilliant sister says she watches the show when she is feeling insecure about her housekeeping abilities.

Ooop, another one!!
