What is a Bucket List? A bucket list is a list of all the things that you want to accomplish before you die. Some want to climb Mount Everest while others want to see the Northern Lights. The point of this list is for you to remember everything that makes your life worth living before it’s too late.

Quick Tip For Creating Your Fun Bucket List: 1) Make a list of the things you want to do before you die. 2) Rank them in order of importance to you. 3) Start working on the tasks that are the most important to you. 4) Add any other tasks that come up along the way.
