While I'd certainly go with a single partition as a solution for your
setup, if you really insisted on having separate partitions, you could
use a logical volume manager like Vinum which should, if I'm not
mistaken, allow you to resize partitions on the fly, reducing the
unused partitions and increasing the greedy ones.
