Too many fields in Account - How to manage

Dear Experts,

We have been using salesforce from the past 7 years. Now we have reached nearly 280 fields in contacts and 620 fields in account. Those are added where and when we felt necessary.

However, now we realized to maintain those many fields is too complex, hence we are looking for a smart way of managing those fields. 
we analyzed which fields used most and use in class/validations etc.,how can we manage them easily than to delete?

Can you suggest what could be ideal solution.


1. You have find out or have the knowlodge of every field.
2. As to bussiness which field is necessary and what we are stroing in each field.
3. You neeed to find out reference of every field in class, validation, or in workflow.
4. For all this you need to create a report and share with bussiness.
5. After all this you can maintain the field on your org or need to delete.

This is my understanding.
