Well do a get info on your home folder and tell us how big that is.. and it would be handy to know what the size of your drive is.

Diskinventory X, and OmniDiskSweeper also work.

Do you mean you have a full HD or do you have an application which is a RAM hog?

PS. And maybe how much RAM do you have?

I use whatsize also.
a great little utility to pinpoint which files or folders use up all the HD space.

Diskinventory X

This one is great because it shows a visual representation of the files on your hard drive. The larger the file, the larger its square/rectangle will be.
