November Bucket List: 30 Things To Do This Month

By now, you may have noticed that I’m obsessed with bucket lists (I mean, what’s life without a few million goals?). And the start of a new month felt like a perfect reason to devise a new one! So, whether you want them or not (I hope you do… 😅), here are 30 awesome activities your November will feel incomplete without! Try one each day or shoot for the stars and squeeze them all into one day!

1. Set a goal for the month

2. Plan a weekend trip for the month (and actually take it!)

3. Have a bonfire (don’t forget s’mores!)

4. Attend a college football game

5. Take a fall colors tour

6. Jump into piles of leaves

    What a fun list! I love jumping into a pile of leaves. I’ve never been apple picking and that is actually on bucket list. Thanks for the reminder!

      Ahhh you will have so much fun! There are so many things to do with fresh apples, so don’t be afraid to bring home a ton of them!! 🍎

    What an awesome bucket list <3 I wouldn't mind trying to unplug for a day and will have to try bake an apple pie too.

    I love this list! It gave me all the fall feels! Now I need to get out and do some of it!

    Love it! I actually have a yearly list that I wrote called “52 in 53”, basically 52 things in 52 weeks. I publish it every year, and love looking back at the end of the year to see how I went. It means the year doesn’t just pass aimlessly, it feels like I’ve achieved something, no matter how big or small.

      I absolutely love that idea, Kel!! And it’s so cool that you do it every year! I am ALL about goals, so I get super excited about setting daily, weekly, and monthly goals – but I’ve never made a list of yearly goals for myself. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Love this! I will definitely try out some of these this fall 🙂

  11. November 3, 2017 / 10:49 pm

    Ahh I love this list!! I can’t wait to do some of these things this month, too. 🙂
