Hey all, I tried finding a RAM-freeing workflow on the forums; I failed, so I made this. It uses the UNIX "purge" command to free RAM. It WILL cause your system to freeze up for a few seconds or more, depending on various factors. I don't know if this is the Apple-recommended method of freeing RAM, but it certainly helps me.
