It takes all sorts of sorts: LEGO organization and me, Chris Doyle
So, let’s start by putting things into context. One of my most vivid childhood memories is lying on a thick shag carpet, watching Battlestar Galactica, and being super frustrated that the clone brand LEGO that my parents had bought for me didn’t have the fine detail I needed to build Colonial Vipers. I remember swearing to myself that if I made it to adulthood, I would buy enough LEGO to fill a room. So, eventually, I did.

I am busy, painstakingly, sorting at the moment. My own Lego, that is. I don't have anywhere near as much as the image above, but it needs to be sorted so I build MOCs and complete some of my older sets.

I am hoping that I can get it done this weekend. And, please, please, someone please allow Westpack to open again. I need to get more containers to finish the sorting.

We used the Kiddiwinks online ordering system a few days ago, as soon as we could order non-essentials - worked well.

@Papa Smurf ^ and they throw in a free polybag with their orders. At the moment, it is a Hidden Side choice of two. Orders over R750 are free. With Lego, this is not difficult.

Sorting by colour is the worst possible way to do Lego. Try find a 1x1 black, white or light bluish grey plate or round plate in a pile same colour. I did it for a wee bit and realised just how tedious this can become :D

Agreed. If you are going to mix all your bricks and not keep them separately for each build, then sort by type. Still easy to see different colours once in a container
