How to Organize Your Shulker Boxes

Inventory management is highly individual. We all have our favorite ways to go about playing minecraft. The following post is how I organize my ender chest and shulker box inventory, so I never have to go back to my home base pretty much ever.

I break up my gameplay categories into: adventures, builds, farms, and advancements. So I place items in my inventory based on those categories. For you, it will likely be different, and that’s OK.

Here’s how I like to organize my inventory:

  1. Black = Tools
  2. Magenta = Transportation
  3. Light Blue = Brewing
  4. White = Food
  5. Red = Redstone
  6. Orange = Misc
  7. Lime = Builds
  8. Yellow = Decoration
  9. Light purple = Empty shulker box
The shulker boxes are in the following categories: decoration, builds, miscellaneous, redstone, food, brewing, transportation, and tools.
