File Size on my MBA-13″

What’s the best way to find out which files are taking up space on your disk? I have MBA 11′ and 13″. Installed Lion on both and no problems – works great!
However, I noticed that on my MBA13″ – my SSD when down to 1.5GB and I have 256GB installed with 4GB RAM.
I do run a lot of programs – but I would like to find out where on the disk the large files are. If they are data files, I can move them off to my external storage. Just wondering what’s the best way to do this? Thanks,

    Just try searching for files that have a size “greater than” 1GB. Then try 500MB. Then 250MB, etc. You find anything like that pretty quickly.
    You can also just look at the size of your user folder. If it is huge, you know the problem is in there. Then look at the size of the subfolders, etc.

    It was my VM that had grown up to 105GB!! Starting to clean that up along with the dropbox selective settings on the VM should free up a lot of that space.
