Tales from the config rabbit hole - and some advice

We've all been there before - as you stare at your screen with bleary eyes, you wonder why the 218397218th color scheme/plugin you've selected hasn't soothed your senses yet. Your plugin manager is crying for help. Not to mention, you've got absolutely zero work done!

Falling down the config rabbit hole like this is usually a huge time sink, and leaves you with zero motivation to actually get back to what you wanted to do. As people who've overcome this, what is your advice to beginners who often find themselves in this situation? Any stories would also be appreciated!

(also, feel free to leave links/screenshots to your own setup in the comments! In the event someone still in the rabbit hole chances upon this post, you might help end their indecision.)

Also, thank you all for the warm welcome to the dev.to community! This is my first post, so please be kind 😄
