The number one issue that I have seen with newbie webmasters is failure to resize photos. A digital camera set to a print quality definition will be creating jpegs larger than 1.5 meg each, it is unlikely that they will actually need to even be 50k for the web. There is free software available to do the resizing.
Don't host videos locally, put them on a third party service. Code will be provided to embed the video on your page.
Scrap any background music.
Look for third party hosting for any downloads.
Then start on the more esoteric ways of shaving bytes off your files.

Dependent upon what type of site this is, you may want to rethink your hosting solution if you are not receiving 500 GB of bandwidth or more for under $20 a month. Having seen bandwidth totals jump over the years, its not often that I have a client that actually reaches their bandwidth limits.
On a side note, if you are on a linux system with apache, you may want to try to hotlink prevention. This site provides go detail on how to execute this in an .htacess file.
