The better way to find files of a given size is with find.

Example:  find /var -size +10M -printf '%s %p\n' | sort -r

The above command will list all files under /var greater than 10MB in 
size, sorted with the largest files at the top.  You can of course 
change the path as needed, and the size as well.  Use G instead of M to 
specify gigabytes instead of megabytes, or K for kilobytes.  'man find' 
is your friend.  :)
