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.

Dressed to the shoes

I am starting to FACE my …gulp…finances
Since I have separated I have spent money like there´s no tomorrow, but I need to get this under control ASAP. Meeting my inner brat has been fun as she is catita, not my real name.
I am starting to to act my wage
Any pointers out there?


It sounds like you already know what you need to do...

So rather than looking for the right book or system get out pencil and paper. Write down what you have and what you owe. Then what your regular income is and what you bills and general expenses are grocery/gas/etc. Take a hard look and work from the truth, and good for you for owning up and growing up. I did this years ago and the truth is that the first bit of time was the hardest. You’ll do great and be glad you did it!

GazeboGal Looking forward to the Ursid meteor shower!!

Agreeing with LoveTheRain

You can do this!

If you need a bit of coaching/book, I loved “Your Money Or Your Life” – it’s the good advice LTR just wrote.

Totaly honesty with yourself, NO Guilt!, just love yourself and know you can do this challenge!

I find that giving myself a small allowance (and it’s less than I had in high school!!) helps keep me from “panic spending” – also, I increase my allowance a wee bit each time I pay off a debt. Might work for you, too :)
