The other day I ranted about my Lego frustration which led me to further research on the issue, on how to best sort Legos. As expected, and this is no surprise, there is no best way.
To begin with, there is no single perfect way to organize a LEGO collection that will satisfy everyone. The closest thing is a receptacle for every element in every color ever made.
The author comes to the conclusion that “sorting by type and size works best” for him, and to me this seems like something a system that I should try to introduce here as well.
