Why Xamarin Development is eating up free space from my Mac ?

Hi Devs,
I have been doing xamarin development on my Mac since September 2017. I had around 70GB free space available in my Mac at that time after installing Xcode,VS for Mac, Google and iOS Emulators. I am so worried that it is eating up space gradually. I had to delete most of my projects and necessary files from my Mac within this time just to make extra space for development. But after doing all this, I am again left with only 3GB space in my Mac. I did not installed any other major software which is making me worried about losing space daily. Can you guys tell me why is this so and how can I get rid of it ?
