You make folders for documents, pictures, music, videos on the HDD. Then right click on those and INCLUDE them into the respective libraries. Then you move your user folders there.
There is another method using the move button in Properties > Location tab. But I would not recommend that.
When you say move my user folder, can you expand on that a little more please? As the only part I understood completely was including folders in libraries. Would I need to remove the folders on SSD from the library too or is that what's achieved when I move the user folder?
Sorry to ask so many questions, but I am about to do a fresh Win 8 install and I'm a little confused by this aspect and I want to do as much as I can to extend its lifespan and don't want my SSD getting filled with junk.

You just Copy/Paste the user folders (and that is your own folders and not the default system folders) from the SSD to the HDD folder where they belong - documents to documents, pictures to pictures, etc.
Once they have safely arrived on the HDD, you can delete them from the SSD - BUT keep the base folders of Documents, music, etc. on the HDD. Some programs will be looking for them, especially the documents folder. But those programs usually park only little data there. So that is no real space problem.
