Keeping Track of the Little Pieces: Tackle Boxes to the Rescue

What about all those really small pieces you end up with? They might be 1x1 cylinder plates, or Technic pins, or maybe minifig accessories. They can be difficult to keep track of, even in a very small container. The solution is to use a larger container that is divided into very small compartments. The most common of these are similar to the one shown in Figure 12-7.

Tackle box-style containers offer efficient and organized storage for smaller pieces.

Figure 12-7. Tackle box-style containers offer efficient and organized storage for smaller pieces.

You’ll often find these types of boxes in the fishing tackle aisle or sometimes in the craft section of your favorite store. The great thing about them is that they very often have small dividers that allow you to configure the compartments into a variety of sizes and shapes. This enables you to customize the layout of each box to the parts you wish to put in it. This is what makes sure you get the best usage out of each container.
