Don't sort by colour! :)
I'd love to still build that way, but the checks and balances of knowing you have/haven't made any mistakes after finishing each numbered bag is just too helpful.

They are about 5cm deep, and clip together. They are made in 1x1, 1x2, 1x3, 1x4, 2x3 (as linked) and 2x5 sizes.
I have a couple of dozen. They last forever!
I had a big sorting session a few months ago. The more common colours like greys and blacks had to go in big tubs, but the rest of the colours went in PAB cups and the tiny Really Useful Storage boxes that come in a 4x4 rack. Picked up loads of those as they're massively discounted on Amazon from time to time. It's nice sticking lids on everything to transport it away from where I've been sorting. Normally to put it all back in the loft.
Do you get a discount if you reuse PAB cups at the Lego stores? I never knew that...but then again I've only ever bought two of them...
As an aside... I really wish there was a way the lids could stack so two (or more) cups plus lids would all just stick together in a single stack.
I'd strongly suggest pre-sorting the bricks by colour, and for the bricks with > 50 qty, sorting those separately. It's a huge set, so there's lots to search through if you're needing something specific. Check the inventory for the set on your favourite lego inventory site to spot parts you should plan to separate out. When I shredded my firehouse I was surprised at how much light grey there was. The more you sort ahead of time the faster the build will go.
