Every time I need to update an app I am told there isn't enough space. I don't even have that many apps on my phone! Someone told me that each update takes more memory, but if I only have 10 or so apps and 8gb of memory, why should there be a problem? And I don't keep videos or pictures in the memory long.

What type of phone do you have and how much storage is on the devices as well as free space storage?

Well, some of the low budget phones come with very limited internal storage, so if ~2Gb is taken up by the ROM and ~1GB of bloatware, you have very little breathing space. If your phone has a Memory card provision, I'd recommend moving all media (photos, videos, mp3 etc) to the Memory card.

A temporary reprieve would be to go to Memory in Settings and clear App cache.

That problem is connected with all old phones. It doesn't have so much free space and all the apps now are huge. I even tried to reboot my phone to the factory settings and it didn't help. You'll always have this problem.
