Get Organized - With Sorted By Sunday

Organizing is the brain work you do before you start to sort. Will you keep all your Technic bricks in one bin, or are you going to separate them by color? How many different bins will you keep and which parts go in each? If you want the fastest and easiest way to organize your bricks, look no further. 

Lego Organizing Tips

Organizing by color may seem to be the obvious choice, but it really isn't necessary. Your eyes are designed to pick up millions of shades of color, quickly and easily. You can see a ripe fruit on a tree immediately, even though it is a similar shape to the leaves around it. To take your brick building to the next level you need to organize your bricks by shape and function... not color.
