Adjustment layers adding size - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

In Photoshop CS, when I add adjustment layers, it increases the size tremendously of the file. This never happened in any other PS version. What could I be doing wrong?...

    Barbara, are you in 16-bit mode by any chance? Adjustment layers add the
    kind of weight that regular pixel layers add in 16-bit mode (for reasons I
    do not claim to understand). In 8-bit mode, adjustment layers are as slim
    and lightweight as they've been in previous versions.

    Just tried a little test - 8.5x11 doent - render clouds. Saved the flattened version as test.psd. File size is 22mb.

    Added a curves adjustment layer, saved layered as test2.psd. File size is 44mb.

    Maximize compatibility is on.

    I'll try it off.

    OK, with maximize compatibility OFF, file size is 22.4mb - very slight increase.
