We just have a couple of big tubs that the legos came in originally. Our legos get played with at least once a day, if not more frequently. Yes, sometimes they get dumped on the floor, but they have to be cleaned up when the kids are done playing with them. I guess for us, it's not a big issue. When the kids are done playing, they all get tossed back into the tub, and the tubs are stored in bedroom closets. My kids have been given several different lego sets, but after a week or two, the sets just get dumped into the big tub with the rest of the generic legos. The duplos are stored in the bin they came in, the bin is stored under DD's bed.
I will admit that I'm ruthless about vacuuming/sweeping legos up. If I happen to find a stray lego on the floor, I will sweep or vacuum it up. We have enough that I don't stress about losing one or two occasionally.
I have a friend who requires that her DD lay out a large blanket on the floor before getting out the legos. The legos have to stay on top of the blanket. When her DD is finished with the legos, they just pick up the blanket and funnel the legos back into the lego box.
