A good tutorial about "squeezing space in LaTex" in here from the Cambridge University's website: http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/help/tpl/textprocessing/squeeze.html

These settings work great for me:

\setlength{\textfloatsep}{1pt} 
\setlength{\abovecaptionskip}{1pt}
\setlength{\belowcaptionskip}{1pt}

A more aggressive configuration to squeeze space in a LaTex doc:

% save space

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlist{nolistsep}

% no space between refs
\usepackage{bibspacing}
\setlength{\bibspacing}{\baselineskip}

\usepackage[small,compact]{titlesec}

\usepackage{times}
\setlength{\textfloatsep}{2pt} 
\setlength{\abovecaptionskip}{2pt}
\setlength{\belowcaptionskip}{2pt}
\setlength{\floatsep}{2pt}
\setlength{\dblfloatsep}{2pt}
\setlength{\dbltextfloatsep}{2pt} 
\setlength{\leftmargini}{8pt}
\setlength{\leftmarginii}{8pt}
\setlength{\columnsep}{9pt}
\setlength{\parskip}{0pt plus0pt minus1pt}

% smaller ref size
\renewcommand*{\bibfont}{\footnotesize}
\renewcommand*{\bibfont}{\small}
