Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

Legos, Legos, Everywhere

Well, I haven't actually counted them all, but I'd say we are pretty close to about 50K.  We started with a lot, then this summer's birthdays brought more, then Legoland and Lego Store at Disney, and now Christmas.  We must have at least a 50,000 Legos.  Fifty-thousand Legos in a camper.

And, of course, when you buy Legos they come in sets.  And when you have to put away your Legos, you want to keep the sets together.  And if you want the sets to stay together, you need to have separate containers for each set.  That is a bit impossible.

Right now we have standard Sterilite containers (Sterilite products are made in the US.)  Each holds, I'd estimate, 10, 000 Legos.  And we have about 5.  And the kids know every piece they have.

I have seen the Lego containers sold that sort the sizes, but they seem too small for what we need.  They also sell Lego Brick boxes, the boxes themselves look like bricks, Lego Head storage boxes, and of course, plastic drawers.  We need transportable, stackable, not-too-large-not-too-small-not-too-expensive solutions.
Around $40
Around $40
Around $50

Around $50

Around $65

So, what do people out there use, in homes and RVs, to store the thousands of Legos your kids have?  anyone have any creative Lego Storage Secrets?
