I just died and returned to the title screen. I'm still dead. How can I get my items back? Is there any way by using MCEdit or something?

I just went adventuring far far away from my home (about 30-40 minutes) and found some wolves. I wanted to tame one so I waited until dark to kill a skeleton. Knowing I had no sword with me, I killed it with my diamond axe and picked up the bones. Right when I turned around the tree I picked the bones from under, a creeper came and blew me up. It was so fast all I could see was a tiny glimpse and then BOOM. How can I get them back?
Don't blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don't turn your back, don't look away, and DON'T blink.

Using mcedit you can find the cluster of items and move your player to it

Respawn and walk back to where you died and dropped them.
If you returned to title screen and came back, the items won't despawn in the usual 5 minutes.
I don't like random crit damage.

I had about 3/4 of my inventory filled with full stacks of wood, a diamond pickaxe, a diamond axe, a wooden hoe, 2 stacks of sugarcane, and a few other things I can't remember.

If you know roughly where you were, you could go back into the game and respawn, then use MCEdit to move your character there to get your items back. Seems to be all I can think of.

I don't know where that is. I live in a snow biome, and I was about 90-120 chunks away from home.

If you install the mod TooManyItems, you can save your inventory into a slot, or you can simply cheat in your previous items. Though, if you've updated, then the only way is to find where you died.

I used the word "cheat" because I couldn't think of a better word.

I'm thinking of just changing my spawn point, gathering my items when I respawn, and then change it back to my home. The thing is, I can't remember where my home is.

The good thing is, on MCEdit it shows what areas you loaded/traveled through by having a large path of squares. I can just follow that possibly.

For the future....If you install Rei's Minimap, it has a death icon you can enable which will let you see where you died making it A LOT easier to navigate back there. It is also nice for marking other things like your home base, cave entrances, etc. I will admit that I tend to get "lost" a lot and love Rei's Minimap Mod. It has been updated to 1.0.0 already as well as TMI. Hope that helps you for the future! :D

Thanks, I think I'll try the minimap.

I can't get onto the download page for the minimap...

Either use TMI or do what the first poster said, that's really the only way.

If you ever inherit a large sum of money (A few thousand) and you inherit it when you're mentally immature, put it into your bank account and leave it there until you grow, trust me on this one.

As above posters have said, Rei's MiniMap is a good idea. But to prevent future loss of items, if cheats are enabled you can use the command '/gameRule keepInventory true'. It's cheating, yes, but it works.
