Here’s what works for me.

1. Specialized tools and accessories kept together.

For example, i have a drill press on a cart. The cart has drawers that have my dremel tools, a handheld drill, drill bits, etc. I have a cart with an oscillating sander and drawers with a powered palm sander and all my sand paper.

2. General tools with easy access.

I have a wall cabinet with general tools (hammers, planes, etc) on the inside. The doors of the cabinet are pegboard so on the outside are my most common tools that I’d reach for such a ruler/level, adjustable t-square, ear-plugs, and a few other things.

This works for me . ALso, when i do my work, my workflow is tool specific. For example, I’ll start a project doing all my table saw work – cart #1. Next would be any drilling – cart #2. Then when I’m done, I might do 90% of my sanding work – cart #3. This is great when I’m working on a project over several evenings.
