How to sort Gmail Messages by Size?

If you are not aware, then let me tell you that Gmail provides each user with 15GB of free storage. We often ignore this free storage that we are getting unless we run out of space. That is when we try to find solutions to delete unwanted Emails in Gmail. While removing these email messages, our priority would be to delete themessages with maximum size; now, the question arises on how to sort Gmail by size?
