Home User Folder Size Management Question

I tried searching threads and I didn't find anything too specific on the topic (and if I am wrong, I apologize).
So, my question is does anyone know/recommend/have tips in how to manage the Home User Folder Size? My user folder is 175 gbs and I really want to trim it down.
Don't get me wrong I'm somewhat of a power user with a 30gb music folder, a 20 gb iPhoto folder, 40gb documents folder (vms), but my Application Support folder is a whopping 90gbs. Now, I figure that my iPhone/iPad backups are in there, etc. but is there a way to minimize all of this junk? It's just really obnoxious doing Time Machine backups and it being 40gbs when I haven't done much since the last update.
Any ideas? I really appreciate any input.

Well, of course you can delete things from the AS folder if they are for applications you no longer have installed. But beyond that, be very cautious.
I don't use TM, but can't you set it to only replace items in your previous backup that have been modified?
