Can I limit the creation of new buffers or maybe I should write some

enable midnight.el to clean up unused buffers.
(custom-set-variables '(midnight-delay 7200 t (midnight)))
in your .emacs will remove old unused buffers at 2 am.

Also, avoid opening many dired buffer:

If you use anything<>

you will find a command named `anything-find-files' (it is new) in

With this command you can navigate to a file you want to open without
opening any dired buffers (use `C-z' to expand subdir and `C-.' to went back
one level).

So if you want to navigate to ~/foo/bar/baz/your_file, you will have
only the buffer your_file open.

I use this command as a replacement of standard C-x C-f.

Or you can just put this in your .emacs and use `a' to navigate and open files in a dired buffer. :)

(put 'dired-find-alternate-file 'disabled nil)
