You can choose to sort LEGO by colour, set, or type depending on how your kids play with them, the size of the collection, how often they take them out, and whether they like to build and dismantle them, or build and keep on show in your living room for moths on end.

Whatever sorting system you use, we share our top four easy and clever ways to neatly store LEGO and keep your home reasonably clutter-free, while still making sure your kids have easy access to their playtime favourite.
