I need your help—how do you store your LEGO?

tomalphintomalphin Member Posts: 250
Is your LEGO collection a mess?  Is it perfectly organized so you can always find the perfect LEGO element?  

No matter how big your collection is (or how well organized), I'd love to hear about your LEGO collection! I'm collecting your LEGO storage ideas for an article that helps you find the best storage solutions for your small, large, or growing LEGO collection.  It will also include tips and tricks from various LEGO builders around the world.

To make it much easier to collect unbiased feedback, I created the following survey. (It will take less than 5 minutes, and I would really appreciate your feedback!)

I'm very interested to hear about what you love about your current solution, what you tried in the past but did not work well, and what you want to try in the future.  I'm pretty sure the final article will have some tips and tricks even for the most experienced LEGO builders, and I'm excited to share what I learn here!

    Done as well. It's not really a topic that can be addressed by a multiple-choice survey though. I could write at length about it!

    Thanks All!  I've gotten a lot of interesting responses, both in the data collection side, and in the text descriptions that you all have typed for the various questions. 

    @MrShinyAndNew you would be surprised - with a large sample size of respondents (over 100 so far), I am able to see which storage products and methodologies are most appealing based on the age of the builder and/or the size of their collection.


    P.S. The survey is still up if you haven't had a chance to complete it yet.

    Sealed boxes are kept in the closet and under a spare bed, whatever is built is displayed on shelving or a table in the LEGO room and then I have a few 3 drawer sterilite sets that contain broken down sets/polys and other unique tidbits.
