Yesterday I scored this colorful 10-drawer scrapbooking storage unit for said Legos for only $29.99 at Michael's. Unfortunately, I used a coupon ($5/$25) that was only good yesterday - but $34.99 is still a great deal for this - it's ticketed price is $69.99. It's usually on sale for about $41.99 (yes, I've been stalking this piece of plastic for awhile now).
It's nice because it's partially color coded. I put ours: Red, Orange, Yellow, White, Green, (empty for now), Blue, (empty for now), Purple/gray, and Black.
I'm slowly growing my little Lego compound...oh, I mean my kids' Lego compound....
And in case you can't get enough of Lego storage, here's one more look at the glory of it all:
Now I have also picked up 15-cup "Rubbermaid" type containers at my favorite Dollar Tree. These are used to try to keep the sets in place. That isn't going so well - so when my son tries to rebuild the set, he can go to the color-coded drawers to try to find his missing pieces.
They look similar to this:
If you dig really tacky Lego looking stuff, you can nab THIS LEGO STORAGE UNIT on Amazon right now for $69.99 (reg. $139.99):
Lastly, our "Homemade Lego Table" was a hit with the kids this Christmas. And it was VERY EASY to make.
