built stuff: goes on tables/shelves
Very small or specialised peices:  goes in a sorter bin for hardware
Peices I have a lot of the same peice of:  get stacked together or put in a ziplock bag.
"wall peices"  get their own box
"minifigs and creatures" get their own box
"Everything else" is unsorted and goes in 5-6 large bins.
