My LEGO collection as of Dec. 31, 2009, and the mocs that are still intact from the last year. Enjoy!
About this creation
First off, some stuff that's still intact.
My Old City Bar, my Zoid, both my dragons, a couple of mechs, some microships, and my new bionicle band (yet to be posted)
On to the collection! it's big enough for me, but I can always use more lego!
First, my neutral tile drawers. they are the parts that I have the most of so they get the largest drawers.
Black, then bley, then grey. in the bley drawer you can also see some train tracks, put there because I didn't have any other drawer large enough.
The technic secion! this section is being used more and more lately.
section one, top to bottom: masks, heads, feet, and weapons/armor.
section 2, top to bottom: random parts, 2 drawers of limb pieces, and then body sections.
Section 3, top to bottom: beams, angled connector thingies, and sockets (including glatorian hands)
On to the system! Here you can see the neutral parts. going from top to bottom in each color, it is specialty parts, tiles (this is only for white now), sloped parts, bricks, and overflow/extra large specialty parts.
my two pick a brick cups, one containing some overflow black slopes and the other containing some overflow wheels.
Primary colored parts! These follow the same sorting order as the neutral colors.
The far right drawers contain some weirder parts. The bottom drawer has propellers, treads, and snow runners. the next two up are windscreens and large transparent parts.
The top three drawers contain technic gears third down), cross connectors (second), and round connectors (top)
here's my box of transparent parts, light green, blue, red, light blue, orange, and the rest of those other colors.
This section really doesn't have a category. just everything else you can think of. The small drawers on the right contain greens, tans and browns, in the same sorting style of the other colors.
The far left bottom drawers contain wearable minifig accessories, droid parts, and single-part figures like that shark or the jack stone minifigs.
minifig parts, heads, bodies, legs, and holdable accessories.
all things orange.
From top to bottom: clear elements, plant elements, green SNOT, grey SNOT.*
Turns out that SNOT is a technique, not a piece. Tiles is the proper term. Thanks for correcting me, Chris. NOBODY hears about this, ya got that?

Oh, and pssst... "SNOT" is a style of building where the studs are not on top of the build, the words you were looking for there were "Green and grey tiles." Nice collection! ~ Chris.
Hahaha, yeah... I knew that. Really, I did. *shifty eyes*
And it has begun... just wait. You'll get more brick, and have to sort that... then you'll need more storage and then resort everything. Then refine that storage more and... it's a never ending cycle. You've got a nice start on it! Don't slack off! hahaha. Oh, and pssst...

So organized!! All I am able to manage was by color, and even that is spotty with the bley/grey distinction. although (and i promise im not bragging or anything) from the looks of things I have nearly three times as much....
I'm so jealous. You have all your stuff organized! I'm in the middle of sorting my stuff, and just as I think i'm making excellent progress, my package of 25 pounds of lego shows up. Do you have any tips to offer me on sorting my stuff?
Ah, I'm certainly drooling now! That's a pretty good collection, Cody. Wasn't it fun, sorting out all those great pieces? Of course, it's even better when you build things with them, which I'm sure you'll be doing a lot of this coming year. Happy New Year, and keep on brickin'!
