Lego Storage & Organisation

Brodie recently celebrated his 5th birthday and he received lots of lego as gifts. I was amazed at how many different pieces of lego there are, not to mention the instruction manuals as well. Lego has become my biggest organising frustration. I have been searching pinterest and google and found lots of different storage solutions. Some people organise lego by colour, type of piece, by project or keep  all the pieces in one huge container. So many ideas but what was going to work in our space?

So after all the researching we finally decided how we were going to organise the lego.




Lego has taken over the first row of one of the expedits in the playroom.

Here are the lego storage boxes.
They have small dividers that are removable or fixed.







Storing manuals has been another headache. I originally stored them in a A5 2 ring folder and used plastic sheet protectors. This didn't go so well in a couple of days the protectors punch holes were ripped. So onto plan B. I love these A4/A5 display books which are wire bound and the sheet protectors are more durable. I get them from officeworks you can see them here and here. It has been a couple of weeks and no ripping so far.....fingers crossed!

I am sure the organisation and storage of the lego will evolve when we get more and more lego but so far this is working for us.


Have you got any tips for organising lego?

  2. A friend downloads the manuals as soon as her kids get new lego. That way, when the manual eventually gets ripped or lost she can print it off again.

    I laminate the lego build instructions, hole punch in one corner, and then attach on a binder ring. Works well for us.

  5. This place is ideal for secure space. Workers are uncommonly proficient. Goodness, and to those of you searching for a spot to lease: I did my homework before picking this place, and the costs are the best.

  7. This storage in Wynnum North is great to store your excess items, whichever they may be. Whether your storing your winter items and exchanging them for summer items, everything will be safe and clean.
