My son’s Lego collection had turned into a mess of epic proportions. We have tried containing them to smaller storage bins to help organize them, but somehow they all seem to turn into a jumbled mess, mixed in with Happy Meal toys and everything else. I’ll be the first to admit he has WAY TOO MANY Legos, but this is what he prefers to play with now and the kid has some serious building skills, so in the name of creativity I let it slide. However, I am a neat freak and I love to organize and finally decided SOMETHING had to be done.
First, I had to pick the Legos out of every other toy storage bin in our home and separate them from the other toys. They were stuck everywhere….in the toy box, in a huge rolling storage cubicle….EVERYWHERE.
And now, here they all are in their new home:
It’s certainly not the most organized in terms of by color/size/shape, etc. No way was I going to punish myself after the marathon cleanout. Plus, he would just have them mixed up again in no time flat. However, they are now all in one central place and are easy to access and so far, crossfingersandpray, they have stayed that way. It’s much easier for him to sift through them and find what he needs and I like the fact that they are, finally, all in one place.
And THAT only took 4 hours of my life. That’ I’ll never get back.
