If you're using FileVault, your entire encrypted home folder is in an odd container called a +sparse bundle.+ It does not shrink automatically when you delete things from it, but when you log out, OSX should "compact" it -- you should see a window like this:
Your OSX drive is dangerously full. Log out, let that process continue, then log back on. See if you've gained much space. Post back with the results.
