LEGO Sorting TipsEfficiently organize your LEGO collection with expert sorting tips. Enhance your building experience and enjoy stress-free creativity!
Use a single drawer to store different sizes of plates, bricks, or slopes in the same color. Access all sizes of plates and tiles conveniently in one go.
Use Alex cabinets from IKEA with wheels for easy mobility.
Place an extra cabinet without wheels on top for additional storage. Note: Be cautious if stacking cabinets; IKEA does not advise this.
Drawers open fully, providing easy access to all stored pieces.
Use individual compartments inside drawers for each piece type (plates, tiles, slopes, etc.).
Use various plastic trays with dividers, including some from IKEA and hardware stores. Utilize paper trays from LEGO Advent calendars for sorting certain LEGO pieces.
Group pieces together based on quantity and usage. Ideal goal: Every individual LEGO element has its own compartment.
Bricks stored in translucent plastic boxes due to their size.
Oversized pieces, train items, animals, etc., kept separately as they are used less often.
Avoid sorting by color to save time when searching for specific pieces.
Sorting by type facilitates quicker identification of specific pieces during construction. Factors influencing the sorting system include collection size, available space, and personal taste. The described system is particularly suitable for larger LEGO collections.
