How to organize your inventory

What should you put in your inventory, including ender chest and shulker boxes? This tutorial will explain how to organize for any Minecraft occasion!

The first box we’ll peek into is: Mining shulker box

It’s good to keep your mining shulker box full of space for collecting blocks. Alotting space for the ores you collect is a good idea when organizing shulker boxes. Use kelp blocks as a fuel source because they can smelt 20 items per kelp block, compared to say, 8 items per coal.

  1. iron ore
  2. gold ore
  3. lapis lazuli ore
  4. emerald ore
  5. coal ore
  6. diamond ore
  7. redstone ore
  8. dried kelp block

The next boxes we’ll look at are: Enchanting I & II shulker boxes

The list to the right contains only the enchanted books I actually use, along with inventory space for extra enchanted items.
  • unbreaking III
  • mending
  • silk touch
  • fortune III
  • efficiency V
  • sharpness V
  • looting III
  • power V
  • infinity
  • projectile protection IV
  • respiration III
  • aqua affinity
  • protection IV
  • thorns III
  • fire protection IV
  • feather falling IV

  • frost walker II
  • efficiency IV
  • luck of the sea III
  • lure III
  • quick charge III
  • multishot
  • loyalty III
  • impaling V

Minecraft Builds

This is a dirt hobbit house in the plains biome.

The interior of the dirt house has a mixed textured floor of hay bales and coarse dirt, with a little cobblestone and regular stone tied in.

The backyard has a firepit next to a pond and the back of the house has a chimney and smoke is billowing out into the air, causing pollution probably.

Modern house made of spruce, cobblestone and black stained glass mostly.

House I built underneath a little hill. Along with some lamp posts and my hopper composter.

Oak starter house.

Storage in four directions underground: North, East, South, and West. That way you don’t have to run around from one level to another trying to gather resources.

Ok so I made another banquet hall.

Banquet Hall

This side is mostly made of glass. It’s a stained glass poppy. I was going to put the stem but I didn’t make the hall big enough.

Outside Poppy

To the left is my fortress tower, in the middle is the traditional royal hall, and on the right is the banquet hall with the stained glass poppy.

This is the loft. It’s just a loft.

These are some alternating netherbrick and quartz stairs. Which was terrifying to get.

And this is the stained glass poppy from the interior.
