... I just set the JPG quality to 80% and that is it.  I did that based on a past study...not sure if it still holds true:

You used a study of the Lightroom compression to decide on 80% in another program?
From that article :

Quote
“Quality 73” in Lightroom, for example, is not the same as “Quality 73” in Photoshop or any other app that I know of


for the OP I set to 92% and averaged 5MB from 400d and around 12MB from 6D

Wow thanks for all the great info everybody.  Good point made by people suggesting that I invest in more storage space as it is not that expensive.  Thanks for all the other tips and bits of info as well.

Don't forget to make proper backups. A good backup strategy is at least one extra local copy, and then another copy backed up somewhere geographically separate. Some of the cloud backup services are good. I personally use CrashPlan, but there are many others that are good as well.

EDIT: In this case, proper backup is the RAW/DNG files, plus any Lightroom catalog files. Remember you don't need to backup the Lightroom catalog caches, just the .lrcat file.
