memory management

i was wondering if there was a tool out there that would let me see my hard drive usages in percentages per folder or file. my problem is that i have alot of stuff that i don't really need on my computer that's taking up space i need. right now the drive is pretty much full, and i'd like to clean it up. is there a utility out there that can help?

man du

cd /<suspected garbage filled top level directory>
du -h . > completedirslisting.txt /* May take a while*/
gedit/vi/pico/vim/kedit completedirslisting.txt

Will show the size of EVERY subdirectory where the du was started.
