drive space and mapping

I have 2 drives in my Q610. I keep running out of space on the root drive. I have more room on the /usr drive that I set up.

Is there a way to have configure debian so that it will put temporary stuff on the /usr drive when installing packages? Currently there are some really large files that get created like /var/lib/dpkg/available and available-old and then in the archives folder. Can I tell debian to put those on the /usr drive instead? I tried to make a link, but it won't let me do a link across drives.
