If you have read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up but can’t figure out where to start, I have created a Konmari checklist that may help! It contains all of the broad categories that you will need to work on such as clothing, books, and Komono. Then, it breaks the categories down into smaller categories. I modified this from another list I found online by combining some categories and adding in others that were not represented at all – like furniture.
You will notice that the Konmari checklist has categories that appear to be rooms and Marie Kondo says we should not go room by room. The reason I separated the categories like this was to make it easier to remember where these items may be found. Don’t forget to check other rooms before you move onto the next checklist item!
Hopefully you will find this list helpful as you go through Konmari.
The Konmari checklist is colorful (which sparks joy for me) but you can print it on a black & white printer if that’s all you have. There are check boxes beside each category so you can mark as completed as you move through the list. The checklist is in PDF format so you will need Adobe Reader (free) or an alternative PDF reader to access the file. If you have any problems, let me know! So without further ado, here is the download! You can click the picture or the Download Now link below:
If you prefer black text, you may download a B&W version here.
If you cannot get the PDF to download, please try the Word file version. You will need Microsoft Word or a Word viewer/editor such as Open Office (Open Office is a FREE alternative to Microsoft Office).
