LEGO Storage Tips and Tricks
You’ve seen all the best LEGO storage and organizers, but to really make the most out of whichever LEGO brick container or LEGO minifigure case you buy, and to keep your LEGOs as organized as possible, here are a few expert tips and tricks on organizing and storing LEGOs:
Let’s Define Common LEGO Safekeeping Terms
To better guide you through the process of keeping your LEGOs in one place (and in top shape), let us first talk about the three most common terms associated with LEGO safekeeping:
- Organization is the process of setting rules to help you decide on how and where to keep your LEGOs, such as choosing what containers to use and figuring out which LEGO goes in which container
- Storage is the physical container that you use for, well, storing your LEGOs
- Sorting is the process of actually putting each brick and minifigure to their rightful place, which is usually done according to the size, shape, color, etc of each LEGO brick
As soon as you understand these terms and how the process works, you’ll be better armed with the right knowledge as to figuring out exactly what organization system you need for your LEGO collection in order to achieve the results you want, whether it’s displaying your best LEGO architecture set or finding space for the biggest LEGO sets ever.
The Best Way to Organize Your LEGOs
As long as you know what you’re in for, you can easily organize, store, and display your LEGOs in three easy steps:
- Understand your collection. Who plays with the LEGOs? Where do they play? Is the play area in just one spot, or do the players move around the house (even outside)? Are the LEGOs even for playing, or display purposes only?
Multiple players may require a large common play area. Most LEGO storage ideas work for stationary play sites, but you’ll need portable solutions if the LEGOs are often transported from one place to another. If the LEGOs are for display, you’ll need to look for suitable display cases and stands.
- Organize your collection. How many LEGO bricks and minifigures do you have? Is your collection relatively big or small? Do you have plenty of storage space in your house? Do you own multiple LEGO sets and would prefer to keep them separate?
More toys mean larger storage containers. If space is hard to come by, you’ll need to be creative, such as vertical storage. If you’re anal about separating things by category, you’ll need a storage solution with lots of divisions, drawers, and the like.
- Find the best solution for your collection. Once you answer all these questions, go ahead and look for the best LEGO organization ideas that suit your needs.
