If you have read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up or seen the new Tidying Up Netflix show about the Konmari method 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. Full disclosure: I modified this from another list I found online. I combined some categories and added in others that were not represented at all – like furniture.
This Konmari checklist has “room categories” and Marie Kondo says we should not go room by room. I separated the categories like this so you can quickly identify where you might find these items. Don’t forget to check other rooms before you move to the next checklist item! You might be surprised where you find your komono items!
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 PDF reader to access the file. If you have any problems, let me know! So without further ado, here is the download!

If you prefer black text, you may download a B&W checklist here.
If you cannot get the PDF to download, please try the Word file checklist. You will need Microsoft Word or a Word viewer/editor such as Open Office (Open Office is a FREE alternative to Microsoft Office).
