    Aptbackup is the free Cydia app to do this. I've used it with good results. Others have complained about it and use a paid app (I forget the name of that). If you use Aptbackup read and follow the directions carefully. It doesn't backup the actual apps just the list of the packages you have. And it only backs it up when you backup in itunes.

    I recommend that you just open cydia, find all the apps you installed under "manage" and list them in a text editor. You will come across many apps that you find no need for anymore. That way you can reinstall only the necessary apps without slowing down your phone with garbage. Some apps also have different versions depending on what firmware you are on so installing backups could cause issues.
