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.

I got on the 52 Financial Challenge. You can go on FB or PM me for a link on how it works. I also got a loan on some money I put down at the bank and I’m paying that back so I am working on a nice little nest egg. it’s taking me some time but I’m doing it.



Doing the thing

It is funny how I started on this savings program, but sometimes I believe God put things in front of you, and you run with it; Anyway, there was a book I ran across called “Christmas Jars” by Jeffrey F.Wright; I finished his other book, The Wednesday Letters” was pretty impressed and got this book. Although the book is small, no more than 150-200 pages at best, it taught me plenty; Basically, you get a jar, save throughout the year, then give the jar to another. I started THREE; one to give, the other two to keep. one is for the kindle I want. I pray it works. I feel like I’m disciplining myself to things.



started saving today.

I just finished reading Richard Paul Evans, “The Five Lessons A Millionaire Taught me for Women” a little over a month or so ago, and one of the things that he spoke on was saving coins. silver coins. it helped to accumulate a fortune and such. On my way to another place, there is a coin shop and I took the time to go there today and bought one shiny silver dollar. It cost over $23 with tax, but worth the weight. So now I am going to save at least two a month. I felt real proud of myself. I highly recommend Mr Evans books. The Five Lessons as well as the one geared for women and start saving.



Working on it.

I’m going to put my state tax in savings. I want to raise $1000 each in three accounts for savings, emergencies and family stuff. That’s my thing. I also want to get stock as well and perhaps build up my Walmart stock. personally I don’t plan to but I also have a stash jar for immediate needs as well. I guess I am on my way.

I feel that as a person especially a single mom/dad with just your income, the BEST thing you should do is save something. I keep feeling this, but don’t do this. A couple of months ago, one of my uncles turned 80, and a cousin wanted to get me up there, but somewhere along the line, we lost communication, and I didn’t get to go. I felt hurt about that, but I kept feeling if I had some money of my own to the side, I wouldn’t have to feel that way, so I am working on saving a little each check until I get where I want to go. $1000 each for three accounts. One for when things come up, another for emergencies, another for serious saving.

saving and have two accounts



Opened a savings account today!!

I opened a savings account today at the City’s Credit Union; On top of that, I got a spill proof cup for joining which I could use for work; this will start up my regular savings, christmas club, kid’s school clothes and other ventures I want to save for.

I think that the thing here is to start small and go from there; like right now, I get paid biweekly, and to be honest, a girl needs her gas, so how to go about getting it? I know I have to put some to the side and start a little something to get the show on the road.



new entry on this

Hello Hello!!
Well, I got myself one of those little piggy banks; more like a pot of gold; but it’s black and have pink lettering called, “The Queen’s Stash” and I put my very last piece of change in there; and since I been buying up stuff for kid’s going back to school(I think I will be saving up for that as well too)this week, I didn’t have but that little bit of money and I put it in the Queen’s stash. hopefully it will be the start of something good; Also I want to start saving for school classes as well; wish me well.



socking away my Alabama refund check

ok, it may just be $15, but it’s a start in the right direction; keeping on, keeping on;
