"Committed to clear conversation" must include things you would never imagine would even need discussing: Tomatoes/honey/chocolate - in the fridge or out of the fridge? Pens - one in every place you might need one or all together in one place where everyone knows where they are? Is it absolutely necessary that there is one of every kind of screwdriver in the kitchen drawer when the garage is just a short walk down the drive for that one time a year we need them? Where is the line between 'retro cool' and 'junk' and how do we find it? Why in a lounge room 20ft by 14ft with a 22inch TV do we need a 4 x 27inch speaker sound system? Just for example.
