Debian with the ease of installation of Ubunru

I worked with Debian for a while before finally succumbing to the attraction of Ubuntu ease of software installation, with all the added repositories, PPAs, and App Armor. Most of the software I need is available from Ubuntu and Ubuntu based distros’ repositories, but I prefer the cleanliness of Debian. Installation of the software I need requires manual installation in Debian which isn’t quick or convenient.

I would like to return to the clean slate that is Debian, while keeping the ease of software installation of Ubuntu-based distros. Is that possible, and how?

Here is a a list of Debian repository that you could use:
