...bleachbit to remove any extraneous files
glad to see cleanup via bleachbit was mentioned

...but, to me, the recommendation to NOT cleanup localization files seems like poor advice.
Performing
dpkg-reconfigure locales
(or hand-editing / etc/locale.gen and running locale-gen)
and / or
installing localepurge
and
running bleachbit (as root, to cleanup localization files)

will eliminate ~140Mb of cruft from the resulting system image
and will improve the speed of future find/locate operations.

I go a step further in cleaning, searching the filesystem for filenames matching "zh" (iso code for chinese localization)
to find the localization files which were "missed" by localepurge and bleachbit
(and were left behind regardless of "remove completely" dpkg/synaptic directive)
