So I've always tried to keep my roms as light as possible, as I don't use many LG functions. Thought I'd share my list!
All the applications listed are frozen with Titanium Backup. Hope someone else will have use for this

A lot of the bloatware can actually be uninstalled. Just be sure to have a Nandroid backup ready (don't do this if you don't have a custom recovery and a backup), because uninstalling some things can cause a Security Error when you try to boot. I found out the hard way yesterday that uninstalling LGSmartcardService will cause that error, but I was able to remove a lot of other things.

It would be helpful if you can list out the 'Safe to Remove' bloatware if possible,

Right. But the /system partition isn't really readily available for anything useful, so I settled with freezing it at the moment. I've heard of people running into trouble when actually removing the apps before as well, beware!

If you freeze LGSetupWizard you could get FC when plug-in headphones.

I use Spotify, Google Music for local content! I don't watch other videos than those in my gallery, for which I use the Photos app that comes with Google Plus.
