I've been keeping those spare bricks in a box. Meaning, all color all parts with all sizes all thrown into a biggie box. Then two days ago, while trying to build some customise ships, I find it hard to find the right color and the right piece easily.
Therefore, I took on the daunting task of seperating different colored bricks out and to keep them seperate in another plastic bag. Yesterday, I put my effort to test and poured out those bricks on a seperate location for diff colors. You know what? Looking for parts of particular color is not so tough anymore And I have fun time building the ship.
Is it a norm with you guys to seperate the bricks color for keeping? Or I have been slow in discovering the norm LOL!!!
Another query, do you keep the pieces of a complete set intact or you lumped all parts from various sets into a common bin?
Last query is, when I was small, I kept those LEGO bricks and like never touched them for months. The next time I played with them again, I discover some bricks actually fused to others thus deforming the piece. Does that happens to anyone of you before? Is it because of the plastic container I used?
Apologise for the many queries.... problem child I am And thanks for your input in advance.
