How to organize and store Legos

Ideas and suggestions on How to Organize and store Legos, so they don't overtake your home! How to organize and store Lego's LEGO STAR WARS Imperial Assault Hovertank 75152 My boys LOVE Lego's and the Lego Sets. Especially those that are themed around their favorite movies.

He prefers to solve them on his own, first, because he likes the challenge, then he researches how he can improve. One of the math clubs at school began…
