Storage Drawers is a mod that is very useful in helping players properly sort their items, especially while using other mods that increase the different types of blocks found in the world.
All this mod does, is that it allows you to build chests that have different drawers. Each of these drawers can then be allocated to a specific type of item, allowing you to always see what items are in a drawer from the icon that is displayed on it.
Now granted, this mod does requires a bit more work than just building a chest and dumping all of your stuff into it, but it does ensure that you never waste time rummaging through multiple chests searching for that one resource that you accidentally misplaced.
