LEGO Storage: IKEA Trofast to the Rescue

I Heart Organizing

We've started the transition from LEGO Duplo blocks to regular LEGOs. And although Duplo blocks hurt every bit as much as their smaller counterparts when stepped on with bare feet, their saving grace is that they're a dream to clean up.

One large bin or basket will do the trick for Duplos. Because of their size and limited shapes, there is no concern about sorting them before storing. We're finding, however, with regular LEGOs, sorting before storing is key. So what to do? Since we're just beginners, a storage system like this found over at I Heart Organizing would do the trick nicely. IKEA Trofast slide out bins labeled with a specific color make sorting and storage simple. And hopefully that means when the time comes to build, finding pieces will be all the easier as well.
