Are you talking about the archive? Having a big archive is generally good; lots of packages available.
Or are you asking about the disk usage of a default install? You should be able to do a minimal install that uses less than 2GB, but it's been ages since I looked at debian-installer. You may still be able to preseed the installer with a package selection of your choice, to get a minimal system plus whatever you actually want.
