How can I find space eating files in my home?

There are many ways to get the information you need. Some examples are:

Command line variant 1

With the following command, you get a list of items in your home, sorted by size in MB:

du -sm ~/.??* ~/* | sort -n -r | less

Command line variant 2

Use the ncurses based tool ncdu.

Graphical variant

Use a tool available in your desktop environment, e.g. Filelight on KDE.
