Hello Planning Mashers!
With this wonderful season upon us, let’s talk about all the awesome things we can do during Fall while creating a bucket list.
In this post, you’ll get tons of ideas on what to include in your list as well as Bullet Journal bucket list page inspirations.
Fall is an amazing time of the year – all the beautiful colors, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin-smelling candles.
It’s that time of the year when you can wear your cozy sweater but you also can actually go outside and enjoy the weather without freezing your ass.
Basically one of the best times of the year!
(Psss, if it’s a different season on your side of the world be sure to check my post Spring Bucket List Ideas And Inspirations)
Of course, it depends on where you live – in Saint Petersburg, fall was usually pretty just for a week before it became SUPER cold and very very wet, while in Beijing the entire season lasted for a week.
However Fall happens in your hometown, it’s still a great time with tons of activities that absolutely deserve a bucket list!

Why Do You Need A Bucket List
We all know what’s a bucket list – a list of things you really want to do. But why create one and especially create one seasonally?
Well, each season is beautiful in its own way and has its own seasonal activities that are super fun.
If you create a bucket list you’ll make sure that you do enjoy all of these and actually see the beauty of the season, not just drawbacks.
Fall can be a difficult season with everything changing, it affects people a lot both mentally and physically. So, it’s nice to stay positive and see the good in this time with a bucket list.
A bucket list also helps you to be more mindful and live more at the moment. It allows you to take a break and remember where you are, to take a second, and spend it on something you like.
With the rush of modern life, it’s so easy to get consumed by your work and other obligations and miss the little things that make you happy. A bucket list will help you to snap out of it and enjoy the season.
How To Create A Bucket List
To be honest, there are no rules here, you do you!
But if you’re a beginner, here are a few tips on how you can get the most out of your bucket list.
- Think of what you want
There are tons of things you can do (just check the list below for some ideas), but you won’t have the time to do it all. Even though everything sounds amazing – take a minute to pick and choose activities that you know you love and will bring you joy.
- Create a plan of action
Just writing a bucket list is a great step, but you should try to do a bit more. To make sure you complete at least a few points of your list – create an action plan. It might not be a very detailed one, but at least have a general idea of how and when you can do it.
- Commit to it
Finally, be sure you commit to your plans. It’s important you stay motivated and always keep in mind to find time to do the things you love. You don’t have to do everything on your list, but set a goal to do at least 3 things.
The most important thing, however, is to have fun! Your bucket list is there to make sure you enjoy yourself and live your life to the fullest.

Fall Bucket List Inspirations
Finally, here are some Fall bucket list spreads to inspire you when creating your own.
It can be a simple list, or you can go extra creative and add doodles and drawings.
While you can include it into your Bullet Journal, it also might be cool to put it up somewhere, so it always cheers you up and reminds you of all the cool things you get to experience.
A list-like spread for your bucket list is probably the best way to make sure you make all these things happen.
I also like that each thing has a checkbox – a great way to cross out all the things you’ve already done and stay motivated to keep on going.
Really love this spread and the beautiful fall colors
Adding a wonderful fall-scented candle adds more coziness to this picture. As somebody who is completely obsessed with candles and amazing fall smells this just made me want to buy some more in my collection.
Such a cute list and I really love the handwriting. I’m really obsessing lately with having better handwriting, if you are too check my post 9 Easy Tricks To Improve Your Handwriting.
I also really like these awesome fall stickers used to decorate this page – such awesome aesthetics.
This is one very ambitious list, with two pages of awesome things to do during these 3 months.
I love the calligraphy on the header – it looks so unique and pretty.
I love all the things on that list! Especially watching Hocus Pocus. I love watching Halloween movies while I’m cozy under a blanket with some coco to assure me it’s all good, even when it’s scary.
The color palette for this spread is also so perfect, with those warm browns and reds.
This list looks so happy! Just look at this cute family playing with fallen leaves. Definitely made me want to do that as well.
Also really like that she added a romantic weekend with the hubby to the list. All the coziness of Fall seems perfect for a nice weekend getaway together.
Nicole always has the best bucket lists with her cute doodles. I just adore her style so very much.
There are a lot of cool ideas here, and all the cooking really made me hungry. I don’t think I’ve ever had a baked potato soup but I totally feel like I have to now!
I wonder what markers she used to write Fall because that orange is so perfect for the season.
It’s also great to see how much she managed to cross off the list.
Always makes me happy to see people following through with the list and actually doing their best to enjoy the season.
Cute list in my favorite style – with little doodles for each thing on the list.
I love how in each list I find something else interesting to do during fall. In this list, it has to be grape stomping – definitely something fun I’d never think of myself.
A list that definitely shows you all you need is just a good header to make your page look amazing.
Must also give special admiration to the flat lay in this image – the accessories are so perfect for Fall and generally creating a wonderfully warm atmosphere.
Read while drinking tea under the blanket seems like the best thing to do any season, but it does feel very special in Fall.
I hope she managed to do all the things on this list because they all sound absolutely amazing and I want to do it all now now now!
Awesome list and great use of stickers. I believe these are Happy Planner stickers.
I love Happy Planner stickers, I got a few packs when I was in the USA and I absolutely adored using them – they are so fun, colorful, and creative. I know I know I don’t use stickers much in my day-to-day planning, but I use them a lot in my memory-keeping pages.
A wonderful proof that black and white can look just as amazing as brightly colored pages. To keep it Fall-themed the image is of mushrooms, which is a pretty clever idea.
Can we also take a minute to appreciate how beautiful this handwriting is?!
Mmm, now I feel like I want some pie. But then again I always feel like pie.
I really love that there is a photoshoot on this list, Fall is such a beautiful time to take bright and cozy photos.
Beautiful list and all straight to the point. I wish I understood what exactly was on the list, but I believe this is German and I don’t really speak German.
Also happy to see how far the author is going with her list.
I love all the different elements present on this page – a drawn background, kraft paper, stickers.
All together these elements made this page look bright and very happy.
This is more of a Halloween Bucket List, but let’s be honest – there are so many amazing things to do in this spooky season that it absolutely deserves to have its own list.
My favorite thing to do in October is probably scary movies. I don’t usually watch those but there is something more fun about watching them before Halloween.
I wonder what the homecoming game is? If you guys know – let me know in the comments.
I really love the idea of filling out the fall leaf with different patterns. This must have been very calming to create.
I must say I absolutely adore the color grading of the header! I wonder if it was done with the watercolors or Tombow Dual Brush pens.
And again this handwriting is so perfect! I find that it’s very hard for me to develop handwriting I like because I see so many different and pretty ones that i can’t choose what style I like the most.
Very cool bucket list and I really like that she divided the list by categories.
It’s always great to have a variety of different types of activities, so this is a great way to organize things.
Such a perfect bucket list! The lettering is amazing and I love the doodles.
I wonder what markers the artist used to color this spread. My guess would be Karin markers – they have the brightest and richest colors I know.
How pretty and atmospheric is the background, I love the photos with a nature background.
Also looking at all these lists makes me want to get some hot cocoa with some whipped cream.
I love what people do with the blackout book and this list is a great example. Just two colors but how much they stand out on the black paper!
Again I must say how in love I am with the handwriting. Maybe I’m just too concentrated on improving mine – I admire handwriting almost on every page in this list.
Another cool list in the blackout book.
I really love the effect used on this page with the white outlines and just a few elements in color.
Ok if these two good boys are actually the artist’s dogs I’m absolutely jealous. Aren’t they just the coziest little guys?
I also really love adding kraft paper to the page, it’s one of my favorite ways to decorate my journal right now. It comes out looking cure and it creates that special coziness.

This is such a beautiful spread and I absolutely love the way she did the flowers. I have no idea how it was done but it looks stunning.
And the drops of color – just such a perfect Fall spread.
This list gets a few points just for having this cute little pumpkin in the picture.
I love that all the items and so simple and yet create so very much joy! By the fact that they are pretty easy to do, you can definitely complete this list during the 3 Fall months.
Awesome list on how to enjoy the Fall during the quarantine. It really shows how many things you can do and enjoy even in the hard times of the world pandemic.
