After having our basement flood this spring, it reinforced to the Mrs. that my "crap" takes up too much of our storage areas in our house. That said, I've been going through everything over the past month and have recently come to the stash of LEGO boxes. I really only got into LEGO over the past couple of years, as our daughter loves putting them together and it is a fun thing to do with her. Plus, I've gotten more and more into the sets in general and seeing all that LEGO can (and has) done with not only Star Wars, but other licensees.
Now, we've pretty much gone about the idea that once we've put them together, they stay together and are played with, displayed, etc. I've always kept the boxes with the booklets and extra pieces, just in case I'd need to take them apart/pack them up or whatever. That being said, they are taking up a lot of space so I'm considering pitching them and just putting all the booklets and extra stuff in a rubbermaid or something. I was curious for those of you who have been in the LEGO game longer, do you keep the boxes or condense things down? Do you keep all of your sets built, or disassemble them and put them back in the boxes? Just trying to decide which way to go. Thanks for any advice.
