Some Folders to know in Lubuntu

Today I am writing about some folder which we can remember for further tweeks on Lubuntu (An lxde based distro from Ubuntu). In my side I am running Lubuntu 12.04 in some poor hardware. No problem at all. I am exploring and discovering many interesting things day by day. Using Lxde is really fast and funny. I like to write Lubuntu / Lxde experience in near future regularly.
I found some folders in Lubuntu which are used simultaneously everyday. I am writing their name in this post to just know about. Please help me to add more folders name in this post if you know.

 /home/USERNAME
