    Default Lego - how do you store it?

    Curious how other hubbers store lego. If it were up to me, I'd have all the individual sets in ziplock bags but unfortunately my kids pull them all apart and lose bits, hopefully with ds2 and ds3 getting older, they'll decide that they don't want to pull all the cool stuff apart. I'm wondering if anyone uses a 'lego brick bag'? Or just storage bricks/containers? Do you just chuck it all into one container? We're short on space so I probably don't have room to set up things by colour/character or what not, but after ideas on what works for others.

    We put everything in the one container. Usually the girls will leave it all together which makes it easier, other times it's in pieces.

    DH built DS a Lego table last year which has 6 of those IKEA storage tubs in it that he keeps all the lego pieces in and luckily he's always kept each thing he builds in one piece so he has tons on display on the table and in his room , the draws are just filled of lose Lego and instruction books!

    I've got all the "built" sets and cars etc in their own 60L tubs. I also have tubs that have seperate tubs inside for colours. All parts are seperately stored, red, yellow, blue, green, orange etc, tub for wheels, trees, doors, windows, people. Took me 3 days to sort it all out

    My dream, but I fear I'd be sorting it out all day.

    All our lego is on display and any extras are currently sitting in a big bag under the tv unit hidden away.

    Everything goes in 3 large plastic containers that the kids close down on. Each container has 3 departments (wheels etc in one, people etc in another, instructions in another, special bits like windows etc in another, ground squares in another and then everything else colours mixed in the rest.

    So far we display them once completed. Ask me in 12 months once we've amassed many more

    DS has one small tub of everything mixed together. DS 2 has also started liking Lego and got his first set for Christmas, but it's already in pieces but I don't have a tub yet. I would love a Lego table but don't have the room. Also I love the sets all built but then there's nothing left to play with

    DS2 doesn't have too much (yet). So I'm trying to contain it as we go. Dh is building him a lego table with storage underneath - the trofast type from IKEA. We've then got a trofast frame which is for any lego not being used at the table. So he can grab a tub and use it at the table then slide it back into the frame when finished.... at least that's the plan!!
