Whether your LEGO collection consists of 5,000 parts or 500,000, it needs to be stored somewhere.
Exactly how to sort and store it is a common topic of conversation in our forum and elsewhere, often started by newcomers to the hobby asking for advice on the best method to organise their collection and which storage products to buy.
To help answer these questions, Tom Alphin, author of The LEGO Architect, has published an online book, The LEGO Storage Guide, that "helps you understand your LEGO collection, find the best way to organize your LEGO bricks, and discover the best LEGO storage for your home and budget."
After sections on helping you to understand what type and size of collection you have, and the different strategies for sorting it, the bulk of the guide covers storage solutions, starting with drawstring bags and plastic boxes for small collections, to drawer cabinets and open-front bins for large ones. Specific products are recommended, and their pros and cons discussed.
Tom has big plans for it, and is actively seeing feedback within the guide itself, in the forum, and probably in the comments here too, in order to continually add to and improve it. It's already the best guide on the subject and as feedback and suggestions are incorporated, it will become the definitive guide on sorting and storing our beloved plastic bricks.
So, take a look, and let Tom know what you think. If you use products or methods that are not featured in it, he'd love to hear about them.
