Though LEGOs are cool as heck the unfortunately reality is that they are a mess. This issue has become acute the past few weeks while balancing the frustration of mess and disorganization while trying to build stuff.

An evil mad scientist with a blog goes through pros and cons of several LEGO taxonomic methods designed to mitigate frustration. My personal favorite is 1×1 storage block (below). Hopefully it will help you organize your messy hobby.
