Carolyn Hax: Lockdown put an end to decision fatigue. How to get that simplicity back?
· I semiretired to a rural, undeveloped island in the middle of the Caribbean a few years ago. There are only a handful of small shops, so you can’t price compare, be picky about brands or look for the latest and greatest products. I had no idea how relaxing it would be to have so very few material choices to make. Ironically, I enjoy shopping so much more now, because I appreciate the thrill of seeing what’s available and what I can make with it.
