A very good way to handle this is to buy CarbonCopyClone ($40 download) and an external drive. Then clone your startup disk to the external, and clone it back.
What has happened is that after several years you have created so many tiny unused disk spaces (some only 1 or 2 blocks large) that OSX cannot relocate everything and make room. When you "clone back", all files will be in a large section at the bottom of the available disk space and there will be plenty of room for BootCamp.

Thank you very much. i have an external drive that holds about 300 gb but i filled it with alot of data on my computer to speed up the resolution for a simulator i have gone all pro at. I just need to wait until i get enough money for the download. Thanks again.

You can download a 30-day free trial. It will make a clone, but will not take any "updates" until you pay.
That at least gives you an immediate clone ability, even if the complete solution takes time.
