Removing Excess Options on Boot

I always update my kernel with the apt-get kernel-image****** command and was wondering if there was a way to knockoff the excess stuff on my boot menu. That is aside from just going in and editing the boot file. My real question is do the old kernels take up a lot of space and can they safely be removed. If so how?

Newbie question but oh well I've been running RH for too long to remember debian
