Dear Yu Jin,
if disk space is scarce a valuable option is to extend it by a USB
stick.  This is what I do successfully on my Raspberry Pi for years.

Sure, a USB stick is slower than a hard drive or an SSD and
unbelievable slow on Windows.  But it's an option at least since USB
sticks are quite cheap nowadays.

I also think that it's a temporary issue because the next computer you
buy will definitely have more disk space than you ever need.
