A New Year is right around the corner! 🎉

This last year didn’t go quite as planned, and kinda stank! LOL! My personal bucket list and overall goals were definitely derailed by COVID-19 and I’m thinking yours were too. That said, there were still some silver linings and some life lessons I’ll be taking away from 2020.

Let’s get excited about the opportunity for a fresh start!

I’ll be using this time not just to think about the things we’ve missed out on over the year, but also how we can do better and use our valuable time with more intention!

Starting a brand new year is always a nice time to reset and reflect on the past year’s accomplishments and set some new goals for the upcoming year. Plus, the act of writing down your goals is a visual exercise that’s proven to be strongly correlated with success!

Here’s a fun printable I’ve designed to get you and your family thinking about the future by writing down hopes and wishes for the new year! 🎉

Hip tips for using your printable New Year’s Bucket List:

    • Simply print and fill in your bucket list for the new year. You could complete this list individually or work together to create a family bucket list!
    • Consider displaying your bucket list in a frame or hanging it in a spot where you can see it throughout the year. Placing a copy in your planner or journal would be a great idea as well!

This is such a fun New Year’s writing activity to print and fill out with the kids!

It’s cute to see what they are thinking about for the new year, and a great opportunity to focus on topics like what to read, cook, and ways to volunteer in the coming year.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of lofty new year’s resolutions, but writing down positive short and long-term goals is something I’ve always found to be helpful—and this is a fun way to do that!

Check out these random acts of kindness ideas to do all year long with the family!

    • LolaLolita

      Hahaha, I hadn’t thought about 2020 turning into an official adult!

    We can’t spend our lives living in fear. Dying in fear. We got to try and stay positive and move forward. This is a nice first step. See it and believe it. ☺️

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Susan! I like that point of view!

    • Tlee1017

      I couldn’t agree with you more Susan 5. I’m going to print this for my entire family and work on it together this weekend! Thank you so much for all your hard work H2S! Happy Holidays Everyone. 🙂

    • AngieM

      So much negativity, we need more positive people like you. 😁God bless and I will say what I say every year right before we start a new year NEW YEAR, NEW BEGINNINGS! Every years should bring new opportunities to learn something and see how blessed we are ❤

    Can you please provide the link for the Christmas lights scavenger hunt. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!!

  5. Debbie

    Hoping for a better 2021. Fortunately, the bar is set very low. LOL

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha yes! Same!

  6. Melissa

    Thanks for the list. Like everyone else, I’m hoping that the new year will be better. I’m no Pollyanna, but honestly considering things, even if it is not a better year, most of the list items don’t require travel. We can still read, learn, do new things, be creative, help others, and enjoy and be grateful for the blessings we have.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes, so well said thanks Melissa! Happy New Year.

    • Michelle B

      That’s right!

  7. Jen

    I just want to hug my distant family (not living in my “pod”) again in 2021! 🙁
    May there be more HOPE and JOY and LIVING in 2021!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes!! Same- thanks for sharing!

    It will take many years for things to go back to normal.
    I think temps should be checked before anyone can enter a public building.
    So many sick people think they should be allowed to come and go at will.
    If people are sick, staying home will limit the spread of disease. There are no magic shoots!

  9. Jeremiah2911

    Thank you for sharing! We did this as a family last year and it was so fun, really looking forward to being able to do this again=)2911

  10. Heather

    Thank you! Printed this and the New Years cards you posted. We just had baby #4 5wks premature unexpectedly, so we doubtfully will make it up until midnight so this will be something sweet for the other kids to do after dinner. At least we have SOMETHING planned now!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw well congrats on the new little one, and Happy New Year!

  11. fleurny

    This list is great! Looking forward to 2021 for sure!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks so much!

    Lina, where did you get those FABULOUS 2020 glasses? So hip I’ll say! 😉Perhaps there’s a 2021 version of these.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Lina is actually wearing 2021 glasses and you can get them at Party City here.

  13. Cat

    We did this same list last year and I put them away. We just went through them to see what we did, and it was actually more than you would think! Also, my husband wrote in ridiculous answers like “Visit: the library” and “Make: a peanut butter & jelly sandwich,” but he also wrote for the final one, “Be: ware!” which is hilarious and soooo 2020! He warned us!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      LOL That is funny!
