comment Starting a wholesale LEGO business
Yes, if you ask nicely and they have surplus at the store, they will sell you boxes. The boxes are the same size, but the content is different: "...just to give you an idea about the content of a LEGO PAB box for basic elements, there are right about 2,800 1×2 bricks in a PAB box... This means that there should be around 5,500 1×1 bricks, 1,400 1×4 bricks, 1,400 2×2 bricks, or 670 2×4 bricks in a full box. More details in this article: thebrickblogger.com/2014/05/…

comment How do i organize all my LEGO bricks and parts?
In addition, the OP selected this as the best answer, which means that they found it helpful for their purposes. Isn't this is what this forum supposed to be about? Helping each other out instead of just being an encyclopedia of dry information?

comment How do i organize all my LEGO bricks and parts?
I appreciate the concern, however I would add that sorting and storing LEGO is a dynamic process - besides just the basic separate by colors and/or parts. There is no absolute answer that will forever pass the test of time. And there are always newer and better storage solutions becoming available. This is why I added a link to two galleries I curate on flickr featuring solutions people come up with. I felt that this was more useful than just saying "you should sort this way". Yes, one day flickr, TBB and even this site may disappear, and we will all die, but the answer is relevant for now.

comment I can't figure out which lego model these doors came from
I'm glad I was able to help. Great detective work on figuring out which sets they are likely from! :)

comment I can't figure out which lego model these doors came from
The door is actually incorrect. The OP's picture shows a smaller version than the one you listed. The larger door - as you correctly mentioned - doesn't come in black. The smaller door however does. You can also clearly distinguish the two doors from the different mold around the hinges. The smaller door was retired in 2008. See here: bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=30223&in=S

comment Is there a good way to buy molded LEGO boxes?
That's a good solution. If you don't have to depend on these boxes and they are just part of your storage system (as you mentioned), then yeah, they can be a nice supplementary option. They are well-made and strong, and they are stackable. Plus they do look very LEGO-ish. In my opinion they are a lot more practical than those awfully designed storage boxes that are made to look like LEGO bricks.
