According to SD card Analyst I have

Clockworkmod: 1.99GB
TWRP: 1.12GB
TBU: 383MB

As you can imagine, that is a BIG chunk out of my 6GB total!

I have flashed lots of ROMs in the last couple of weeks but I have now settled on one. AFAIK all I need to keep is the current bakup in TWRP in case anything happens.

I would be glad for some advice as to what I can safely delete. I don't want to make a mistake as my system is running brilliantly right now.

Many thanks for any help!

As you already said, you should keep the TWRP backup as a safety net... The dated folders in the Clockworkmod can be deleted if you don't need to use them any more. Just leave the main folder but delete the sub folders.
TBU backups are just your apps + data... if you don't need data restored (since you probably have them in your TWRP backup) you can delete the contents there as well.

I agree with cvcduty, but I just wondered if there was a reason you use both TWRP and Clockworkmod, especially on an 8GB N7 with limited space. I've always just used CWM, so I was curious

Well, to be honest the answer is a bit silly: I am not aware of having used CWM, I didn't even know I had it!
Can I uninstall it altogether? And if so, how?

In CWM, there is a folder called Blobs with 1.78GB worth of folders. Is it safe to delete it?

If you don't use cwm then yes you can delete it.
I removed mine aswell as I have a nandroid backup on my PC which I can adb push if worst comes

The clockworkmod APK

and

The clockworkmod RECOVERY

both use that same folder. Every time you flash a cyanogen Rom it had the apk installed by default. So that's where it's coming from.

In the folder back up the Nandroid folder or the one with data system recovery files (140-250mb) to your computer and then delete the whole dang folder if you do not use clockwork recovery.

As for titanium you can use the cloud storage feature and save another 500mb
