Using AAC for the encoder actually takes up less storage space than the same encoder setting used for MP3.
128K AAC takes up roughly one MB for every minute of music.
Per this link, the person used 128K AAC and compared this to using 192K MP3 as a close equivalent.
File size using AAC for the encoder was 3.4MB
File size using MP3 for the encoder was 5MB.
If this person used 128K MP3 instead of 192K MP3, the size for the MP3 would have been smaller than 5MB but not as small as using 128K AAC.
Using 128K AAC is your best bet for sound quality (unless you have very particular hearing) and taking up the least amount of storage space for each song.
