Maybe you don’t, but I do.
Speak for yourself. Here’s what just one floor of my storage tower looks like:
You’ll see that I have everything organized and separated into columns of chests. Since this is my base in Exiled Lands, I’m not as well stocked as I usually prefer to be, so the contents of my shaped wood chest look like this:
However, I also have raw wood. The chests where I store it look like this:
That means that my wood stockpile currently has 53248 wood in it. That comes out to 10649 shaped wood. Together with 2685 shaped wood I already have, that would come out to a total of 13334 shaped wood. That’s 13 full stacks and 1 partial stack, about 30% of a large chest in terms of space.
And again, that’s pretty normal for me. I have a freaking Excel spreadsheet that details the building pieces and their costs for the latest version of my Citadel build, so don’t tell me what “normal people” do or don’t do, because not everyone playing Conan Exiles matches your definition of “normal”
