I organize Lego by stacking them, it really, really helps Iím looking for them. I especially like that I can put several LEGO types into the same compartment. Hereís some pictures of how I stack my inventory. Based on the type of elements in your collection, you might come up with other creative stacking techniques. In that case, please share!
I've done this at times, but I find the time to put together and take apart offsets the space-saving aspect for me. Regarding an earlier comment by another, I think he meant that this method may negatively affect the Lego blocks' locking capabilities. I wonder if that's true or not.

Doesn't that affect how tightly pieces adhere if stored long-term like that?
From my own experience I have never seen Lego tightness increase due to time & I have Lego since the early 90s. Also on Lego.com they describe Lego brick suppose to last for generations. But if they do get stuck there is always the "Lego separator" tool..
