Saving a file under a different name at times (and re-saving it under the original one if needed) can also reduces file size drastically.

Detail Groups are another offender for filesize and performance. Just like in-place families, for every duplicate instance added within the project, the file size of the original is added again to the project.
Using Detail Components instead, each duplicate instance will incur a neglible increase in project file size. I once measure this, and for 10,000 simple detail components, it added only about 35kb to the file size (after compaction, which I did before as well).
