Way to examine a save file and find out where I left something?

I have gotten into a bad habit in Fallout 3. When I get overencumbered and there's nothing I can reasonably just drop, I pick out something in my inventory, stash it somewhere handy, and try to remember where I left it in case I need it again later.

This time it was my two sniper rifles. And I did not remember where I left them. I already looked everywhere I could remember having been today, and they're not there. So what I need now is a way to hunt them down. I know every item that you move from one place to another is stored in the save file somewhere; is there some sort of fan-made tool that can analyze save files and find items you've stashed?

Not really since there are so many hundreds of stored items in the game, and they all have the same baseid (or is it refid) while having a unique refid (or baseid if it's the other way).

You would need to know those two specific rifle's codes.

Yeah, but I don't like constantly teleporting all over the place because it wrecks the immersion.
