#162 TIPS: Pick-a-Brick cups strategy

Every LEGO store should have a Pick-a-Brick wall, where you can fill cups with any pieces you want. You are charged for the cups size, and not how many pieces there are in the cup, so it is important to pack the pieces as efficiently as possible to get the most value for your money.


The pictures attached suggest some ways to pack the cups. They involve connecting the pieces, to remove any gaps between the pieces, and allowing more pieces per cup.

Are you someone who packs their Pick-a-Brick cups efficiently, or do you just try and cram in as many pieces as possible? Let me know in the comments, especially if you have you own way of packing them.
