What to do with 1600 LEGOS

My little boy loves LEGOS. For Christmas he got a huge box of them. 1600 of them to be exact.

 I wish I would have gotten a picture of his bedroom after he was left alone with them......I knew something had to be done!! We went to walmart & picked up some small sterilite containers for 96 cents a piece. They are usually just clear, but they had some in blue so we got those. When we got home little man set to work sorting & organizing :)

{love it}
We forgot to count how many we would need. So, 3 more of these are on the list for the next walmart trip.

Who knows how long they will stay this way, but for right now, it's PERFECT!!  :)

I am looking forward to a day at home today cleaning and organizing.

Linking Up:


  1. Perfect solution! My son bought 2 of those big 1600 pc sets at Walmart. I thought it was a little much considering how many he already has. He informed me one was to sell on ebay. lol. He sold one for enough that his was free. Smart cookie ;) I love Legos and all the boys in our family play with them. Great toys!! (except when you step on them) Happy New Year.

  2. Hi! New follower here! If you were ever to take a look at my etsy shop you would know I have a huge thing for buttons and legos. Great idea, right now mine are sorted in gallon bags and they aren't taking the wear and tear too well. Would love to sort like this and have them on shelves in my studio! Great idea!


  3. My boys have wanted me to organize their legos too. It looks like a huge undertaking! LOL! I'm a new follower!! :)
