Cheap Bucket List Ideas

Everyone should make a list that you should set out to accomplish

List of stuff to do

I love me some list of stuff to do. Life goes so quick but it is still a good idea to put together a list of fun stuff you want to accomplish. Bucket list for you and your boyfriend. Here are some cheap bucket list ideas items I have now:

  • Do One Thing You Are Afraid Of
  • Lemonade stands.
  • Leave a Love Note on the Bathroom Mirror
  • The beach (seashell hunting, castle building, ocean splashing, lying down in the sand while your kids throw sand in your face)
  • Face this fear today by planning a date with yourself
  • Learn to Juggle
  • Have a luau in the backyard. Don’t forget Limbo!
  • Hike a New Trail
  • Give Blood
  • Get Fitted for a Bra
  • Find a pen pal, and start writing letters
  • Bake a Loaf of Bread
  • Play 20 Questions With Your Partner
  • Surprise Someone
  • Go for an inch hike. Create a gauge or mark your finger at 1 inch. Then go for a walk or hike, looking for things that are less an inch or less long
  • The lines do not need to rhyme, actually most of the time they don’t
  • Handwrite a Letter to Someone Special
  • Perform a Magic Trick
  • Homemade snow cones, popsicles, or ice cream. No one wants to bake in the summer, but frozen treats are totally fun to whip up together — and eat
  • Do a Charity Walk
  • Go to the Movies By Yourself
  • Go to Dinner and/or the Movies Alone
  • Kids Skate Free offers free roller-skating passes for kids under 12 during the summer.
  • Stay up late and have a night of stargazing
  • Read a Classic

  • Tie-dye! Get a cheap kit from a craft store and go nuts. Definitely take this project outside
  • Donate Clothing
  • I can guarantee you that
  • Have a picnic at a local park or even just in your backyard
  • Get a bucket with soapy water and a few sponges. Have the kids wash your car. Have them wash their toys cars. Whatever. Water + kids + hot summer day = magic. And you might end up with a (slightly) cleaner car in the end
  • Visit an animal shelter (though I can’t guarantee you won’t return home without a new pet or two)

  • Take a New Route to Work

  • But think about it
  • Cheap movie theater deals. Lots of theaters will have half-price days or early-morning $1 shows
