How do I best set up Linux partitions & mount points on my old netbook with limited storage capacity?

I have an old Asus Eee 900 (with the Celeron proc). It has a (terrible) 4GB SSD and a 16 GB SD card. I think I grok partitioning but I don't know how to set the mount points so that it uses the 16GB for storage of things that will expand over time. I keep having to reinstall the OS every few months because the 4GB drive gets filled up with software updates and user files, yet the 16GB drive still has multiple gigs free.
I have been running Ubuntu in the past but this time I'm installing Mint 13.
Can you advise me on what to do or point me to the proper reading to figure it out?
Upgrading hardware or spending money is not an option, and no need to warn me about poor performance from the terrible PHISON SSD or card reader as I am infinitely familiar with those issues and can live with it. Thanks!
