In the Finder, press the Apple key and the letter F. This will bring up the New Search window. Click on "Kind" scroll down to "Size" and choose something like "Greater than 20 megs".
Add the search criteria of "Visibility" so you can find hidden files. Your mileage may vary, but you may be able to find some log or cache file that is out of control.
