Blogtober Day 18- How To Create A Fall Bucket-List: Guest Post

Happy October!

Welcome to Blogtober Day 18 Today we have a guest post! The next few posts will be guest posts from some amazing people. Today’s post is from the amazing Emily and her tutorial on how to create a bucket list for fall.


We all know what a bucket list is: It’s that list of things you want to do before your last day on earth. But did you know that a fall bucket list is even better? That’s right—we’re giving you permission to have a fall bucket list! Here are some ideas for creating one.

What is a bucket list?

The term “bucket list” was first used by author and journalist Bucket List, in his book of the same name. The book’s premise is that there are certain experiences in life that each person should try to have before they die, and it’s called your bucket list because you want to fill up your life with these experiences before they’re gone forever.

That means that if you’ve never been skydiving before, you should make it happen on your next vacation; if there’s an international destination you’ve always wanted to visit but haven’t yet made it there, now’s your chance; even if all you want to do this weekend is take an art class or read a new book (which can also qualify as bucket-list worthy), then go for it! The point is: whatever makes YOU happy should be something YOU do—and not just someday when time permits or money allows—now!

Pick your theme

Now that you’ve decided to make your bucket list, the next step is picking your theme. It’s important to choose a theme that fits with the season and also reflects who you are as a person. Here are some ideas:

  • Pick a theme that is relevant to fall in general. For example, if you’re someone who loves hiking or camping as much as they love pumpkin-spiced lattes and sweaters, then consider creating a list of fall-themed adventures like attending an outdoor festival or going on hikes in the woods!
  • Pick a theme based on things you’re interested in learning more about. Maybe there’s something specific about fall that intrigues you (like how pumpkins grow) or maybe there’s something specific about yourself (like wanting to date more people or learn how to cook). The point here is just getting creative—a great way of doing this is by thinking of all the different ways we can connect with nature beyond autumn leaves changing colours each year; for example, think about what types of activities allow us, humans, most closely relate ourselves back towards our planet earth: walking barefoot through grassy fields after rainstorms may help us realize how much life exists outside ourselves; eating foods made from ingredients grown locally before being processed into grocery stores could be just one way among many others–but don’t feel limited by these suggestions!
Put it somewhere you can see it daily.

In order to stay motivated, you’ll want to keep your bucket list in a place where it’s visible every day. Some people choose to put their list on the fridge or on their phone screens with sticky notes or apps. If you don’t want something so permanent, there are other ways to go about this:

  • You could write it down and stick it somewhere like above your desk or on the bathroom mirror.
  • You could even just have an image of what your completed bucket list looks like saved in an album somewhere!
Check it off once completed.

Once you’ve completed a task, it’s important to celebrate the accomplishment. To do this, you should check the item off your list. (And if there are different lists for different tasks, then make sure that they are all organized in a way where you can easily cross things off.)

You have several options when it comes to checking things off: You can cross them off with a pen or pencil; mark them as complete on an online calendar or planner or use any number of apps such as Trello and Google Calendar to create digital lists with checklists.

No matter how you want to keep track of your progress, keeping track of what needs doing will help ensure that nothing falls through the cracks — and remind yourself just how much fun fall can be!

Make a bucket list for the fall season

You’ll first want to make a list of everything you want to do this fall. You can include anything from apple picking to leaf peeping, depending on your area and interests.

The next step is to go through your list with a fine-toothed comb and decide if each item is something that would be fun for you, or if it’s just someone else’s idea of what’s cool. If it doesn’t fit either category—like a pumpkin patch trip with friends who don’t share your enthusiasm for spooky things—it should probably be crossed off the list so that you’re more likely not to feel discouraged when the season comes and goes without trying out those quirky experiences!

Don’t worry about what other people are doing either; just get out there and have fun!


As you can see, creating a fall bucket list is not only fun but also rewarding. You’re sure to have a blast as you check off all your new seasonal goals (and maybe even some familiar ones). So what are you waiting for? Start planning today!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post just as much as I did.

Love Always,

Gee xoxo
