Use Grand Perspective to see what's taking up your disc space.

Replacing the hard drive is very easy, so it might be time to get a bigger one. They are not expensive these days.

Another suggestion is to delete all the unnecessary non-en and non-english .lproj language files with Monolingual and often save 4GB or more of HHD space. And add any non-Intel code as well for some more savings in its options.

Read the manual first and immunize any later MS Office 2008+ and recent Adobe software from being stripped. Otherwise their auto-updaters won't work.
