Looks good and I see the value of doing it that way for a lot of items.
That's actually the way that I set mine up. I have 1 bin for 1/2" EMT, another for 3/4". Then a bin for 1/2" PVC and another for 3/4". This way I just grab whatever bin I need.

X2 on briefcase for specific jobs. I'm trying to get in the habit. I have a ton of the cases, just trying to work out how many I should carry. Going job specific should narrow things down.

That is pretty nice bin Hackwork and I have simlaur result as you have there but some bin what I get with covered bin they come handy because there are some rough roads I have to go thru from time to time.

For OP for the shop set up if you are geared for resdential I wont keep too much stuff in the shop at all just basic most common item you will get from supply house but I keep couple common panels and meter socket on hand and small batch of common conductors but anyting else .,, just go to supply house to get.

I understand what you are refering to some oddball items but normally if the supply house have them then use them because somecase I will not see that item for a quite a while before I see it again.

For the tools that is kinda seperated topic but I think it been addressed here few time before., again the most common one you can keep in your truck/van but for special tools you can keep in the shop until you need it or rent it.

Here is me getting material ready before I got my vans. I would say that 95% of that stuff I did not need and have been working to get rid of. I also don't use those briefcase style organizers anymore, I put the material into open eurobins so it's easy to access. I only have 3 briefcase style organizers on the van now, they are for the really small stuff.

Those pictures are old, taken before I realized how silly it was to bend your own boxsets
