The Best Lego Storage System

If you have a Lego Lover in your house, I am sure you are all too familiar with the nightmare that is attempting to contain all those tiny little pieces! My son is a”Lego maniac,” as he calls himself, and we have Legos coming out of our ears! We tried a couple solutions and nothing really seemed to work well. Either Legos got dumped EVERYWHERE or the bin was too much to dig through and the kids just didn’t play with them.

After trial and error we found the best solutions for us. We love having our Legos all organized by color! Reason #1 There is no dumping them out. Hallelujah! #2 The kids can ALWAYS find what they are looking for #3 They get played with constantly because its EASY!


There is one important trick to make this system work. The bottom drawer is the “To Put Away” drawer. That is where Legos go when we are in a hurry to clean up, or when my younger ones are putting them away. About once a week we go through and put everything away properly.

What is your system to organize all those little tiny Legos? Have you found a good way to keep them all under control?

    We recently sorted all the legos in our house by color and it’s working great! Can you tell me where you purchased the storage tower that you use? Thanks!

      I printed the vinyl with my Silhouette. But craft stores sell lots of cute letter stickers that would probably be cute too!

      Se sorted the doors, wheels, etc by color, and had a small separate bin for mini figs.
