Hello atrophied BZP hivemind.

 

Due to working more and readjusting my budget, I've come out of my pseudo-Dark Ages over the past year. I've also recently moved and have a lot of loose LEGO bricks.

 

So I'm wondering, how do ya'll store them? I have a good chunk, but not enough to warrant sorting proper, but too much to just all toss in together messily. I live in a small apartment (New York, woo!) and so want a simple, compact solution. Links to items on Amazon is a plus.

I just use tool sorters from Lowes or Home Depot. I sort out specific pieces, like 1x1 plates with a clip on it in one drawer, 1x2 plates with a bar, heads, hair, axles, pins, etc. and the larger, more common parts go in tubs or bags.

Those are what I figure I'm gonna end up using, because, duh. Right now I have two of these filled up with loose bits, plus a small bag and other bibs and bobs.

 

I guess I'm wondering if you've thought of something else. Is there another way that makes sense? Or have we as a LEGO community found the best way and are sticking to it?

I have my entire Bionicle collection in two of them and that's a lot of parts. Plus they don't take up much space.
