Used bricks I selected the storage solutions in the previous three chapters based on my own experience, from talking to other LEGO builders, learning from families with young kids, and the experiences of educators who use LEGO in the classroom. While the size of your collection, and the place where your collection is stored are the most important factors when picking a storage solution for your LEGO collection, there are a number of additional considerations you should explore before spending a lot of money on LEGO storage.
This chapter looks at a few of these secondary concerns. Likewise, as you or your child become more experienced LEGO builders, you might want a more organized storage solution to make it easier to find specific parts.
The easiest way to plan for growth is to ensure that there will be plenty of empty space in the storage solution you buy. A good rule-of-thumb is to ensure that each container in your storage solution is about half full when you organize your collection.
This leaves a lot of space for new parts before you need to upgrade your storage solution. Another good idea is to look for modular storage solutions.
If you are using plastic drawer cabinets, you can start with just a few cabinets, and add additional cabinets as your collection grows.
Do be wary of purchasing discontinued or off-brand storage solutions, as you might not be able to get more when you need them. Storage Systems While there are good reasons to use the same LEGO storage solution for your entire collection, this may not be practical for several reasons.
For one, you might want to re-purpose older storage solutions for seldom-used parts after upgrading to a nicer storage solution. For another, you might need a container with larger compartments for your most common parts.
You also might want to store seldom-used parts in a cheaper storage solution or a less convenient location. Maintaining an Index If you have a large collection, you might want to maintain an index to help you keep track of which bricks you have, and where they are stored.
You can use a printed list of common parts to help keep track of where your parts are stored. You could circle all of the parts that you own, or you could write the storage location in your collection next to each part in the Contact Sheet.
Contact Sheet — Keep track of the parts you have, and where they are stored by printing this contact sheet and writing notes next to each part.
Some people maintain a digital inventory of the LEGO parts. Alternately, you can use the BrickStock app to keep track of your inventory. Cross-referencing If your storage solution includes backup storage locations when the primary storage is too full, or if you keep new bricks separate from old bricks, you might want to implement a simple cross-referencing solution.
This helps you remember that there are additional bricks of this type stored in a different location. Leave yourself a note if you run out of space in your primary storage.
I designed a simple paper card which is small enough to fit in the smaller Akro-mils drawers. I can write the approximate quantity of extra bricks which I have stored elsewhere. In my case, overflow LEGO bricks are stored in plastic bags which are kept in inexpensive Sterilite drawers.
The colors which seem to be most susceptible to showing scratches and wear are Black and White bricks. I use a mesh bag that came with my rock climbing harness, but there are several commercially available products as well. Washing LEGO is easy!
Put bag into washing machine with other laundry and regular laundry soap. After washing, lay bricks out on a towel or carpet to dry. Some people suggest that you use a dishwasher instead of the washing machine, to prevent bricks from get tumbled against one another.
Use extra caution if you have a top-loading washer — parts could be broken or scratched by the agitator. Finding a specific piece is easier with a Funnel Tray. Funnel Tray — A Funnel Tray makes it easier to find a specific part or color.Rated 5 out of 5 by Nellster from The best invention since the wheel.
If you don't have one of these I can picture your LEGO collection. Teeth marks, scratches, broken parts, etc. If you buy one of these, building (and destoying) anything will be a breeze.
