I saw one on clearance at Wal-Mart.... ALMOST bought it but I truly questioned if the sorting worked well. Read the box on how it supposed to work but in my experience with things like this; the larger items bind up in the holes and just clog the thing up making the thing more of a PITA than solution. There's also way better methods of storing; I was mostly interested in the 'sort by sifting'.
Anyone used one of these? Is there a better way to sort mass quantities of Legos?
I started separating things out and organizing them better now that my son is old enough to appreciate organization =) However it took me many hours over the span of several days to sort through the two Big Bins O'Lego and just find minifigs, minifig parts, minifig accessories, translucent pieces, "cool pieces that could be made into awesome weapons" and angular/wing plates.
How have other people tackled this?
Do you prefer to organize by color, by type, by size, or other method?
