iTunes is killing my hard drive space.

I have searched and cannot find the solution.
I have a Windows 7 laptop. I have an ipod touch and so does my 12 year old son. We both have our own logins and out own iTunes accounts.
How do I stop iTunes from duplicating his apps and music and my apps and music and filling up my hard drive?
Lots of our music is the same and lots of our apps are the same. It seems like a huge waste of hard drive space to have his 32 gigs of stuff duplicated in another directory.
Thanks for your help.

The only way you can share files, with multiple log-in accounts, is to give his account access to files stored in the documents folder of your account. Then they could add the files to their library and they would not be duplicated.

Either that or you can spend $40 and buy a 250GB USB 2.0 hard drive and move everything to that thus filling up space on your notebook's internal hard drive.
