Your Mac stores lots of log files, most of which you never need to review. Open the Console application (in /Applications/Utilities), to see a list in the Console Messages window sidebar. You can delete many of these files without affecting your Mac, and you can save significant space, since some of these files can be quite large. Cache files consume a lot of space as well.
