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.

2008 is the year!

Going to start taking this goal a lot more seriously this year. Heading to Bali in June so need to save for that for starters, but going to work hard on the debt reduction too this year

Doing pretty well with this at the minute...

I just wish that the big unexpected bills would come less frequently! Hubby’s bike broke down and of course it wasn’t a simple job, so it’s going to cost $2000 to get fixed! So there goes half the money I’ve saved since my holiday….Never mind I’ll keep plugging away – I’m aiming for $5000 by Xmas but with the bike that might be a stretch now.

Simple Savings

I’ve find an Australian Website called Simple Savings. Full of amazing tips and tricks for saving money. You can either sign up for the free newsletter, or buy into the “savings vault” for $47. I know – I thought – Buy into a website for SAVINGS tips, but I think I might – I’m finding so many inspiring things on their site! Anyone thats interested it’s


A work friend asked me to lunch, so I had my homemade lunch before I went and had a coffee with her instead!! Sounds silly but it’s a big step for me to have at least starting sticking to my budget. AND Bras and Things – my all time favourite shop ever – had a huge sale on and I didn’t buy anything cos I really didn’t need anything!! This time a couple of weeks ago I would have bought 7 sets just cos they were pretty!!

Dipster has gotten 14 cheers on this goal.
