List Rules Vote up the things that you hope to do before you die

Have you ever created a bucket list? A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die (or, you know, "kick the bucket"). If you haven't started to think about all the things you want to accomplish before your time runs out, start with this list - it might just inspire you to think of things you want to achieve! After all, the best way to get things done is to make a list, and it's oh so satisfying to check stuff off when you complete the tasks!

Whether your goals in life are to travel, learn a new skill, or do something totally daring and out of the ordinary, this list of things to do before you die is chock full of great ideas. You and your friends may have always wanted to make bucket lists, but maybe you needed some bucket list examples to get you started on the right track. Well here they are! We're giving you bucket list ideas, so no more excuses! These things to do before you die are kind of essentials to life, so don't overlook them.

If you have a bucket list item that you don't see here, add it and see how many other people want to do the same thing! Tomorrow is guaranteed to no one, so once you have your bucket list going, make sure to get to work and do as many of the things as you can! Vote for your favorite bucket list items and see how they stack up against the others!
