And just to be incredibly contrary... this is in canon. Why not?

If possible, this weekend (if not, next) the speakers will be revealed in the midst of things.

My organization has been especially haphazard in the last few years as my collection's grown extensively. I'm big on trays - usually small cardboard ones, as you get with boxed candy at Christmastime - and re-used boxes. The big wooden drawers are intended to take over most of the brick storage, and a desk which I've not worked on in a while at my dad's shop is going to be primary workspace and tile storage. Probably.

I thought I was disorganized. Until I got most of it into ezy-storage drawers. Although I still have a couple of large 90 litre tubs of bagged stuff still sitting there waiting for me to do something with it all! :D

Looking at this horrid mess you exist in I am reminded of one thing...

My build room!

We even have the same lamps and storage containers. But there is never enough of them. I get everything organized and the next time I build something regardless of size I find myself having gone through every container messing it up again.

If only my build room held so many bricks... and containers.

And where's the chair in the second panel? I can't see it under all the containers! :P

It's a bit obscured - it's under the bottom left bubble in that panel. The upholstry is visible, with a Glad storage bag box atop it.

There's a sort of organization to it, but most of the organized stuff is packed away. I left out the seven-drawer plastic tower with Glad-bag organized piece cohorts. These are mostly the mid-build trays or mid-dissassemble trays. Lots of them ended up in bags with vaguely associated pieces.

The bank of small plastic drawers on the wall are useful (visible in the final panel) help a lot, as do the various bolt-and-nut organizers (three small, three large, one super-sized) for small pieces like 1x1s (tile or brick), Technic bolts-and-nuts, and minifig accessories.

I'll try to remember to get a picture of the vanload when I move all this - and see if I can find the old pic which filled a Civic only three short years ago...

Ah, I see it now.

And how does using the small plastic drawers work out for sorting and storing bricks? My Lego collection isn't quite big enough to require them yet, but it's getting close...

They're pretty good for small-to-mid-sized things you have plenty of, like tiles or robot army minifigs or transparent pieces or what have you.

And now I look and see all the "Simpsons" and "Arrested Development" DVDs... and my Snake-Eyes and Scarlett action figures... Sigh. Moving is such sweet sorrow.
