It sounds about right re: the numbers you have. My Mini9 on 10.6.2 (monolingual-ed and manually pruned) with sundry 3rd party applications is eating up 6.54GB. Seeing you really don't get a full 8GB of disk space due to formatting, the 1.5GB free seems reasonable.
So, maybe get xslimmer and run it?
Some of these things I do to keep the disk usage down:
Computer refuses to turn on... Operating system full?

Another clean up you might want to do is get something like Yasu.app that helps you kick off the maintenance scripts inherent to OSX. Trimming logs and caches can help.
