Question fresh install

I have a production machine that was my first-ever 100% linux machine. I
started with Kubuntu 8.04 and during the past two years I have just upgraded
the OS and now I run with 10.04.1., KDE 4.5.1.
All is fine but due to the fact that this was my 'first-ever-machine' with linux
(now my whole office with 7 PCs is with Kubuntu), I was using it to experiment
everything that I wanted to try. As I am not expert, I found out that after
two years it started to work rather slow. For example, the login takes about
1,5-2 minutes, after opening Kontact, I need to wait for about 5-8 minutes for
some disk-work that blocks everything, etc.
So I decided to do a fresh install soon after 10.10 is available with /home on
a separate partition. My question is what should I do to preserve all my work
on that machine (which is my primary office production machine)? I do back-ups
every week. It is obvious that I will need to copy back all files from my
Documents, Pictures and all the rest visible directories under /home. Also to
follow some of the instruction to migrate my mails/addresses/calendar entries
into the new install.
What else? Any advice that will make my life easier is appreciated.
