technicaltactics: Welcomes from me

Hello, my name is Mac, and after being on Brickset for awhile, I decided to try the forum. I have collected LEGO since the 80's, many of my sets, not uploaded into my inventory yet. I currently am interested in creator and city, I used to be on a craze buying Starwars sets, until they just lost the charm they used to have. My username is the name of my Bricklink store, Technical Tactics, I sell from Ohio, USA and specalize in Technic and Bionicle parts.
Currently, I have been trying to rid my LEGO workshop of an 18 gallon tub, filled to the top with a mix of BIONICLE and Technic parts. I am selling this for $300 (USD). If anyone is interested, just respond on this thread.
I have been on a quest to decide how to sort my 20,000 and over amount of bricks. I currently sort by colour but need to find a better way. If anyone could help me with that, post it here! I hope someone makes a deal with me on the tub of parts, and making this topic makes me feel welcomed to the forum already.

    Glad to meet you! I've never been to Ohio, but it is one of the places I hope to visist in the future: my favorite punk rock band, Relient K, is from Canton, and I need to get a picture of me standing in front of their old studio before I die ;)

    As for your sorting problem, I have the same problem: I just sorted my entire collection (roughly 25,000 pieces) by color, and found out that it's actually a pain to find a certain piece when all you see is the same color. However, I find it easier when there's one bin dedicated to only wheels/axels, another for only transluscents/windows/doors/cockpits, another for only Technic/Bionicle, ect. But that still leaves all my bricks, plates, and headlights; they're still sorted only by color. I'm not sure where to start on them, so I guess I need help, too :)
  • bmwlegobmwlego Member Posts: 819 had an article that suggested sorting by color AND part which is what I've done for the past 4 years and it works for me.
    My elements are in ziploc bags in sterilite towers.
    Each type of brick is in own bag (1x1, 1x2, 1x3, 1x4, 1x6, etc. These 1x brick bags are then placed in a LARGER ziploc bag. I do the same with 2x bricks, plates, etc.
    What works for me might not for you. Find the system that you like and stick with it. I don't want to waste time looking for elements so this system makes finding a part easy.
