January Bucket List

January Bucket List

I haven’t done a bucket list in such a long time! But as January is the month of resolutions and goal setting then let’s get started! There’s a handful of things I aim to do this month and they are mostly to do with organising the home. So in no particular order here is my January Bucket List…


One of my lifetime bucket list items is to re-do the kitchen. But as I don’t have money to completely re-do the kitchen at the moment, there are a few things I do need to sort such as:

– Put child locks on the drawers and cupboards
– Sort out the cutlery drawer
– Sort out our chocolate/cake cupboard
– Install a spice rack as we have so many jars of spices around
– Clear out the cupboard under the stairs

Front Room

I’m determined to make our front room a bit more homely this year. We will have been in this house come 6 years in April and we still haven’t got any photos/decor in the front room! So some homely touches I want to add:

– Twinkly lights on the mantelpiece
– Buy and put up a mirror above the fireplace
– Sort out the kids’ toys

Red Room

This room is our dumping ground as it’s the first room as you come in the house. So as you can imagine it has all sorts of bags and stuff just thrown in there. So this month I aim to:

– Clear out all the shoes and coats that have been dumped there
– Sort out the rubbish on the DVD cabinets
– Tidy up the cables around the computer

Non-Home Stuff

These are a few things I want to do this month that isn’t to do with sorting out the house:

– Start taking the dogs for a walk every other day.
– Sort out my stationery and find storage for said stationery.
– Read a book. Specifically “The Chocolate Lovers’ Wedding” by Carole Mathews.
– Have a wonderful birthday for Little Miss! Can’t believe she’s 3 already!

What’s on your January bucket list?

    I love your list for this month. I have to rearrange the cupboards so many times because I have a small kitchen and a lot of pans (my husband would say too many). This year I’ve decided to cut down the amount of food I store, like cans and dried pulses, oats and so on. The supermarket is only 10 minutes away, I don’t have to pile up food like a squirrel in the autumn.
    The spice rack is so important. I used to have loads of spices I didn’t use because they were tucked away. Now I use them often, as I can see them easily on the racks.

    Honestly though, sorting our your cutlery draw is the worst thing there is, it’s the only chore i really hate doing!

    Good luck with your decor and DIY. I too want a new kitchen but first need to complete the kids rooms with carpet (that should be today) then do the new study.
