Well, I do confirm that adding the 4.4.0-22 kernel, there was a drop in
the memory usage.

Initially, the system started with 1.2 gb.

I disabled evolution processes as suggested above.

cd /usr/share/dbus-1/services
sudo ln -snf /dev/null org.gnome.evolution.dataserver.AddressBook.service
sudo ln -snf /dev/null org.gnome.evolution.dataserver.Calendar.service
sudo ln -snf /dev/null org.gnome.evolution.dataserver.Sources.service
sudo ln -snf /dev/null org.gnome.evolution.dataserver.UserPrompter.service

and gnome-software. There was a drop to 993 mb.

After the suggestion above with kernel 4.4.0-22, my system starts at
795.2 mb.

Moreover, the teamviewer process is running at system startup, so these
numbers can be further reduced by 70-100 mb.

If somebody knows how to re-enable evolution processes please let know.
