To achieve this you need to use bricklink and know what you have in your LEGO Inventory. In the method that Dr Jake outlines, you make use of a feature on BrickLink where you can pat out what is in a set using a feature they have.
Once you’ve done that, review the inventory of parts and cross off what you have, and what you don’t need. E.g. you can get the manual online, you might not need the minifigures, not worried about Stickers, etc.

I won’t spoil the whole system, but if you’re LEGO Taste buds are now salivating, then check out Dr Jake’s original video:
I’m already drawing up plans to acquire some missing trains. One thing to note though is that if a set uses a lot of custom parts, this method won’t work as well.
Have you tried this? Do you have another way to get these sets – and don’t say using Lepin. Let me know in the comments.
