What is interrupting your organising system or routines? How are these things preventing you from maintaining your daily systems? What are the things that break your cycle or stop you from maintaining one?

You may have set up a great organising system, but what is blocking it?

The truth is, anything could be interrupting your organising system!

It could be an overfilled drawer with items that have fallen down the back so you can’t close it. Or one that’s so full that you can no longer open it.

Could it be a pile of items placed in front of the cupboard which prevents you from accessing it? Your cupboard might just be overflowing with so many items that you can’t put things away or even close the door.

Perhaps it’s a cluttered office now filled with the most random items.

What are your current organising system blockers?

Is it that you can’t find the item that you need to complete the task?

Maybe you just haven’t worked out the system that would most effectively work for you.

Or maybe you can’t find the time to find out any of the above!

Does this sound like something you’re dealing with? I get it.

These are all valid things– but they are all things that can be easily conquered and resolved.

You’ll be amazed by how little things like fixing the handle or runners on a drawer or simply emptying the drawer will make a difference in your life.

For instance, fixing the lightbulb that’s been flickering might just be the first step to sorting the rest of your life.

It can be a pain to make time for these things, but completing these tasks will instantly lighten what you have on your plate.

Unblocking your system may just be the key to living a more stress-free life. And it starts with your decisions and actions to get them out of the way.

It’s not easy but there are various resources available that can help you! If you’re unsure of whether your home really needs organising, here are 10 signs it’s time to do so!

Here’s a Christmas challenge for you: it might be worth adding all these little projects to your to-do list. You’ll find just how big of a blocker they’ve been in your life!

If you find it too overwhelming, be sure to get in touch with us after the holidays to have professional support.

From all of us at The Organising Bee, we hope you have a safe, joyful and clutter-free holiday!
