You should have someone help build you a custom housing area instead of buying stuff, my dad used an old aquarium and built a custom house with areas for the bearded dragon to chill and a lot of holes to go in.

Well don't take advice from people who don't own a bearded Dragon. I have one, his name is castor, and he is 5 years old, so I know my way around this.
Don't spend a shitload of money to make a cool tank because he will grow out of that tank in a couple months and need a bigger one.
Just buy a regular fish tank, and get a caged lid that fits. Now as for what to put in it, you can go anywhere from paper towls to sand. I have sand in mine and haven't had any problems. Now if you get sand, what noto said is true, they will eat the sand, and get constipated, and ultimately die. There are special brands out there that make sand that can be eaten by the dragon, and it won't cause problems. They are expensive though, so I'd go with papertowls until he/she gets bigger.
what you have for lights looks fine so no problems there. although if your bulb goes out, any old light bulb will work to replace. (saves money)
You also have good stuff for inside, so no problems there either, but when he/she gets bigger I'd suggest getting some bark/tree shit they sell at pet co/ pet smart because your dragon will start climbing and that will keep them occupied.
Thermometer and Mister are unnecessary. Thats just the shit they say at the stores to get you to spend more money.
I don't know what you are looking at food wise, but there are certain foods the dragon cannot eat. Some even kill him/her so be careful. (I'll find you a guide of what they can eat if you need one)
Also to start out, mealworms are the best. Eventually when he/she gets bigger you can feed them crickets. When you start, don't get huge worms, go with small, and don't give them too many (give them like 2-5 too see how hungry they are) because if they don't eat the leftover worms, the worms will eat the dragons eyes, and then you have a problem. (Not a joke either)
The dragon also needs a salad every day, which also needs to be regulated because there are certain foods the dragon can't eat. I've found that my dragon is fond of kale which is like lettuce, so look into that.
Hope this is everything you need.

Expanding on slowskis post, my gf's dragon eats an organic salad mix that we usually pick up at the grocery store for a few bucks and usually last a week. She feeds him that daily and worms every few days.

Mine has the caged top and the sand that doesn't mess with them if they eat it.
