Gigabytes of rpm files

I want to save bandwidth.

Sometimes I use urpmi and at times smart for any updates on my Mandriva spring. I had Mandriva 2007 since I learnt. Every time and now and then files kept dowloading and many times the apps want to have the same files again and again. So I don't clean the cache and gather those files leaving them on the disk. Now I have Gigabytes of rpm files of many versions.

How to manage?!?!

Any advantage keeping these files, other than saving bandwidth??!?
