Storage query...

Post by Scribonius » Fri Aug 19, 2016 6:06 pm

Huh, okay, I've dug through the archives. Lots of suggestions on how to store the glorious bricks of ABS, but none at all on storage of building manuals.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a good way to store them? :?

Right now, I've just got them piled up in a box, but the box is getting rather full, so I will either need a SECOND box, or a better idea on how to store them.

Ask WhiteEagle. In all seriousness, you could have a bookcase or just another box. I'm thinking another box is better...

You could punch holes into them to file them away into folders. This dramatically reduces sets' resell value but you can keep them in good order for decades that way.

Hate to hijack a thread, but it'd be redundant to make another. I'm moving home next week, and can no longer just shove all my lego in the shed as it has been for the last decade. It is going to have to be stored in my bedroom. I don't just want a bunch of tubs lying in one corner, so does anyone have any compact storage solutions that look good and don't cost the earth? I'd kind of like to know how the few people with bigger collections than me are doing it.

Condense into one tub. Or go to a hardware store and get a cheap metal organizing shelf they work wonders and can store a shit load. Another thing you can do is get some 3 gallon ice cream tubs they stack and don't look that bad and could then be stacked in a shelf.

I'd genuinely need a small skip. Also It'd be god awful to find anything.

This however could work, although I'm at the whim of whether it looks good enough to be permissible.

If you don't want a bunch of tubs lying in one corner, then try putting them in multiple corners.
