I've been collecting Lego for a long time and have all my sets logged in Word documents with any pieces that I'm missing (copied from Peeron). I'm sure many (if not most!) of you have some form of doing this as well :)
My question is on sets that have bags inside still unopened. I have many sets that seem to have been purchased for the use of a few parts or possibly sold to people uninterested in them (somehow!). When cataloguing sets of this nature how do you go about it? I refuse to open sealed bags to count parts and feeling through them is often quite difficult. I have found however that each part type is limited to one bag (unless it's a set which had individual boxes inside, then rules apply inside each box). This has helped a bit as if you can find just one piece inside the bag you don't have to count all of them :)
So, wondering how you all handle this aspect of collecting?
