@BootstrapCook @lickedspoon Not specifically a decluttering guide (it touches on that as well as gives help on staying that way), this book on getting organised with ADHD was really helpful for me: Order to Chaos, Jaclyn Paul      source

I love this perfect gift from my colleague @lizzielove! I had this book as a kid, and I swear it set me up to be a product manager. It's a story of feature creep and demanding customers, as told by a boy and his mouse 😅 Anyone else remember this #prodmgmt gem?      source
