you can check which app uses what amount of RAM in settings > more > application manager > running

just remove Clean Master and don't worry about RAM. android pretty much takes care about that automatically.

Well, mine, running the latest, rooted stock 4.2.2 (I9105PXXUBNE1) also drives me nuts with its crazy RAM usage. Idling, it offers me puny 200 MB free memory at best, 300, if it doesn't hate me at the moment. I admit, I have lots of apps, but all of them are greenified.
I also use Seeder and SD-Booster to hopefully, squeeze some power out.
How could I possibly enhance its performance? And no, I'm not going to flash any custom ROMs, I like the stock FW.
I'm not using any hard mods besides apps and Xposed with Wanam, so besides these my phone is vanilla. And I factory reset my phone a couple days ago.

you could change the CPU governor. interactive governor gives a noticeable performance boost but it also slightly increases the battery usage. or you could flash a custom kernel (mosh kernel for stock) and tweak it even further with the 'performance control' app.

Mine hovers between 470-370mb free depending on how heavily I've used it since the last reboot (Using LiquidSmooth 3.1 ROM the 13.06.2014 build). The free memory numbers aren't that relevant - you shouldn't obsess over them. Besides your apps and ROM, performance depends on your kernel, governor, scheduler and the way your low memory killer, dalvik vm and cache are configured.

Phone Ram usage!

I think its normal for samsung roms because they have a lot of services and a lot of samsung apps like s suggest, chat on, samsung apps, samsung hub, s voice... so it mighty can use more ram than its supposed to use!

For example, using an app such as Kernel Tweaker, you can customize your Low Memory Killer (LMK) to be very agressive - meaning it "kills" apps very quickly, even when you have high amounts of free ram - meaning you'll always have plenty of free RAM; or you can configure it to be very light, meaning it will only kill background apps and services when it is very necessary (e.g. when you only have 12mb of free RAM left.).

Other Dalvik tweaks are a question of finesse but they still affect performance in a subtle way.

I found it were the AVG (AntiVirus, PrivacyFix, Uninstaller, Cleaner, Zen) apps that made my phone so sluggish. I uninstalled them and now my phone flies!
