    Organized Legos

    Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

    This is the second time in a month that I have attempted to organize the boys legos.

    The first time I only had three drawers so I just divided them, the people and weapons, the flat pieces, and everything else.

    It seemed fine until I was asked to help them build something.

    I could not find anything!

    It was a pain in the neck.

    sorting

     I actually gave up and decided right then I was going to organize them differently.

    storage

    We had one of these drawer systems from Micheal’s so I decided to buy another and sort their legos according to color.

    The process took a little while but the boys actually said it was fun!

    I guess they just like working with me on things.

    Several hours and millions of legos (maybe it just felt like millions) later…

    color

    I put cardstock in the label holders so the boys could easily see what is in there.

    The little book is a binder I made for their manuals.

    It just has the plastic sleeves inside with a piece of cardstock put in it.

    I just drop a manual on each side of the cardstock.

    I got tired of finding torn up manuals everywhere!

    If you are like us and have already lost some manuals, check out the lego website!

    They have over 3000 online for free!

    drawers

    So far it seems to be working!

    This should also help with building them since the instructions always have a certain color you should use.

    I did this for my “boys”, right…

    It is not because I like to play with Lego’s at all.

    I moved the boys table closer to the lego storage (it is in that back corner on the left) because I knew the farther they had to walk the more likely they were to not put them up.

     Creationary is the boys new favorite game and what pushed me to finally do this.

    It is like pictionary but with legos!

    The storage area for all of the legos is color coordinated though.

    Here are some more lego storage ideas:

    I need to make a do not touch box like this one shows.

    Over 40 ideas all in one place!

    Some pretty storage, here. The rest of her site is pretty amazing as well.

    Under the bed storage!

    I really want to make one of these travel boxes but have been having trouble finding a mat that fits.

    Is anyone in your house lego crazy?

    What do you do with all of those little tiny bricks?
