I recently received notification that my "Filesystem Root" was running out of remaining space. I followed along this thread. After cleaning up a few folders, this is the output of

sudo baobab /, I noticed that most of my local files are stored under
/home/username, including Downloads, Documents, Pictures, etc. Is this normal, and if not, how can I set
/dev/sda4 as the default location for local files?
Alternatively, should I allocate all the space from
/ to make it bigger? For context, this is all on a single 256G SSD.
