Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Cook and eat what I have before buying more (read all 10 entries…)
Week of 11/2 = Tuna casserole & various sides

2 cans of tuna stirred into homemade macaroni & cheese = fast, easy and only used what I had on hand. The dish used up some of the cheese that was starting to go moldy (had to trim it off), so that’s an extra bonus.

Clearly, it’s not a balanced meal so I will need to cook some vegetables for a side dish.

Overall, this is going reasonably well. October grocery money spent was about half what it was in September. I’d like to see how far into November I can get with the remaining food supplies; only purchasing a few fresh items (onions, cream, butter; etc) to supplement and round out the things I already have.


ATLfemme has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
