Removing junk files from ubuntu TIPS

Updates are probably the biggest contributor to your HD usage, with your Trashcan coming a close second.

To prevent the former causing future problems, use the setting in Synaptic Package Manager:
Settings -> Preferences
Files tab
Delete downloaded packages after installation

Or manually clear the packages each time with
sudo apt-get clean
For Trash, just ensure you empty it from time to time.
