with memory starting to get a little hazy these days, I was wondering if there was a mod out there, that, while relying on me to visit my storage chests, etc, could keep track of what I had.
Then when I'm making items, and it says it needs 6 of a, 9 of b, etc, I could search and see if I had 'any' of a or b, before going on the hunt through all my chests, or digging and mining to get what I need?
Thanks in advance.

There are at least 3 ways to deal with the problem you describe:
1. Extra Utilities 2 has a keybind "Search Nearby Inventories for Item". I just checked, and it will work from the JEI item list or recipe display even if I don't have the item in my inventory. It causes chests or other storage blocks (such as YABBA barrels, and probably also drawers from the Storage Drawers mod) to emit white smoke particles for a few seconds if they contain the item in question.
2. If you don't want to hunt through "all" your chests, it sounds like it would help to come up with a system for organizing your items so that you can know ahead of time which chest(s) to look in to find the items you want.
3. There are mods like Refined Storage and Applied Energistics 2 that among other things, allow much greater storage capacity with a single interface.
