I sorted my pieces by color, and since I don't have many boxes I used ziploc bags to put my pieces in.

Really? I didn't know that you had. It's especially hard when you have upwards of 14,000 bricks.

Is that a guess, or are you actually literally counting or using a website like brickset to count your pieces?

I sorted the parts when i sorted them and write down how many pieces i have of each. Thats for the sorted pieces. The rest is guessing.

I bought some plastic organization boxes from Walmart and those have really helped. I sort my pieces by type or what they are used for. For example, I'll have a container for greebling pieces, one for regular bricks, etc. It works really well, and I have over 18,000 pieces according to Brickset!
