Here's a short list
- Delete faces you won't see (e.g. on the bottom of a car)
- Simplify faces (e.g. remove edges that doesn't help define a curve). You have to use your best judgement on this
- Don't model anything that would look just as good on a texture (I don't know what your model is so this might not apply)
- Post your model on the WIP forum for far more experienced CGTalkers to crit;)

also, i think we don't hesitate to delete faces and rebuild them to make the model as simple as possible.
