Post Final LFS system size question

Ok I have spent 4 long days making a LFS OS and so far it is still under construction but I was wondering once the whole basic system is finished how big will it be?

Also is there any way to make it smaller?

To quote the LFS book:
It is not difficult to build an LFS system of less than 100 megabytes (MB), which is substantially smaller than the majority of existing installations.
So, I think it will be around 100MB and that you can decrease the size.
