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.

How to remove Wax

I love candles in my house. But sometimes, a few drops of wax fall upon your table cloth or worse on your furniture. I just let them dry, don’t try to scratch it with a knife. Warm up your iron, put a piece of tissue paper/kitchen roll/Toilet papar on the dried drop of wax and run the warm iron over it. It will melt the wax and the paper will absorb it. Clean the spot with another clean paper and Presto!

Be a Domestic Goddess!

Hi! i have decided I am going to be a domestic Goddess, like my mom. I recently read an article on the May issue of Marie Claire (UK) and have decided to follow this routine I found there. I have added a few things of my own.

  • Turn down the beds every morning and air the bedroom.
  • Do all the washing up after every meal.
  • Tidy and clean the bathroom everyday.
  • Hang up all the clothes in the wardrobe at the end of the day.
  • Spend weekday evenings – mending, restoring, patching etc.
  • Get up two hours early once a week to clean the house.
  • Always iron the washing/ spritz bedlinen with lavender water.
  • Order the shopping on the internet.
  • Sort out the wardrobe twice and year and pack away unseasonal clothes.
  • Arrange clothes and accessories in order.
  • Prepare dinner partis in advance, lay the table in the morning.
  • Water and mend to potted plants twice a week.
  • Tend to personal beauty and pampering once a week.
  • Buy flowers wholesale in the early morning market.
  • File and arrange my cookbook.

thats all for now but you can add anything you wish to this list.
