Yearly Bucket List Ideas

Savvy Tip: Create a Yearly Bucket List


Bucket lists are a great way to set goals and daydream about grand plans, but it's easy to feel overwhelmed by everything you hope to see and accomplish in your lifetime. To make your bucket list more manageable, divide it into parts and give it a yearly spin: "13 Things to Do in 2013." Choose one item to tackle each month and be realistic with your picks, setting aside the loftier ideas for a separate "someday" list.

Committing to just one item a month is reasonable enough, and when one fresh experience leaves you reenergized, you'll feel inspired to continue with the rest of your list. Not sure where to start? Here are 10 fun and doable bucket list ideas:

  • Go to a museum in your city that you've never visited.
  • Volunteer for a cause that means something to you.
  • Visit a restaurant or attempt an intimidating recipe you'd usually avoid.
  • Go all out and host the dinner party or birthday bash you've always imagined.
  • Run a challenging race that requires regular training.
  • Save $100 a week for four weeks and put the money toward a dream vacation.
  • Do the thing you're always talking about but have been too scared to try.
  • Take a beauty or fashion risk.
  • Sign up for a class — fitness, language, etc. — that interests you.
  • Spend a month focusing on your space and decorate in a way that inspires you.
