I had never heard of either. Both earn +1 from me.
I thought for disk space usage I needed to rely on du -h only! Thanks for these suggestions!

So I always add back the Application Menu and Actions Buttons items... Application Menu at the far left / Action Buttons at the far right... to bring back the Xubuntu what was it 12.04 look... when
ever Ubuntu LTS did that Unity UI decision and I jumped (fled) from Gnome to Xfce! And I still add back to new Xubuntu installations the bottom panel that was present in that version.... useful icons,
and I currently increase the workspaces to 16.
I do not add clipman, but I do know people who add it / make use of it.
I would say since the standard is to use Wiskers menu... I vote to leave the layout on the top bar alone, and to leave those two packages getting installed so they are convenient to simply add back to
Also I add System Load Monitor to my top bar / right side.... to keep an eye on CPU and memory use.

"With all the work I have to do, I do not have time for games." Famous quote at the close of a David Barnes OS/2 commercial! ;-)
I suggest leave mines and sudoku present, OK for adding the suggested games.
I am thankful,
