D&D 5E Character sheets are too cluttered

When I make sheets for first time players, they look similar to those:

important thing is not having skills tied to atributes.
I just tell them, if skill or tool applies, increase the value by +2. If both apply, also roll woth advantage.

I use two different character sheets in text format, one for all the gritty details, and an abbreviated version for when I run games. Monsters and PC's are so easy to manage this way that I can run combat on the fly without having to look anything up.

Bold move rolling with just 3 torches and no 10-foot-pole. ;)
halfling. a 10' pole would just be awkward.

Anyway, story behind that sheet: This was right when 5e came out, and the fact that I could fit a character on a notecard like I did in B/X was a huge plus for me liking the game.
