go stow my lego
December 30, 2010 3:45 AM   Subscribe

I have a relatively small amount of lego that I keep in a (12 X 14 X 8") bin which I'd like to store in something a little more organizeable for convenient building.

a tackle box? tupperware? something from ikea with umlauts? I like the idea of a sealable container with little adjustable spacers as seen in some hardware/hobby boxes, but haven't seen anything in particular which grabs me yet. is there a go-to brand/device for this sort of thing?

Plano makes tackle boxes with removable bins that have removable dividers. excellent for legos

Whatever you get, you want something that seals well so it doesn't spill when it gets knocked over. And it will get knocked over.

Also, don't over estimate getting a small rubbermaib tub and using ziploc bags. Expandable and flexible.
