Made a video on instructions how to use the "MY REMARKS" Section for your bricklink
store inventory when parting out Lego Sets.

Hope some can find this useful!

Very nice setup, and a great help for those who are moving or thinking of moving,
into a larger inventory situation. Mine uses slightly larger trays, same type
of arrangement, but the trays are 2' deep x 1' wide x 4" tall, and I
use bin cups in them. I notate drawer number(s) a lot is in, as it's easy
enough to grab a whole tray and scan through in a few seconds to see which bin
cup they are in.

My trays are lettered horizontally by section, and numbered vertically, two columns
of trays per letter section. So A1-A10 are in column one, A11-A20 are in column
two. And while the whole thing is kind of free form, I try to maintain colors
in a column, and things like slopes in row 9-10, 1x plates in 7-8, 2x plates
5-6, etc. Thanks for the video!

And that here is why you should have started numbering from zero: you columns
would have been 00-09, 10-19, etc.
First digit = column, second digit = row.

Of course, the day you add a row, you count from 00 to 0A.
And then you can go up to 36 rows and 36 columns, all with a two “digits” number.

All neat and well ordered. Yessir.

Well, each rack segment holds 60 trays. There is space above each rack for (4)
58qt totes, as well as about a 4" high space for large, flat storage, this is
where I store large instruction books and some large set boxes. Technically that
area is A00, I suppose. There is also space to hold an additional (4) 58qt totes
of bulk storage below each rack as well. Sections hold 20 trays, and are labelled
across A-I, 3 sections per rack segment, 3 rack segments currently, total. These
house the bulk of my New parts stock.

Bin cups in the trays are two sizes, and are moveable and configurable to handle
most any sized stock. In addition to that are 3 rolling aluminum racks that each
hold one whole section's worth of working stock trays each, to take stuff
from the sorting room table to the stockroom, and 6 rolling carts that hold (8)
58qt totes of Used, unsorted stock each, for mobility in taking stock in and
out of the sorting room. It's a cozy little operation!
