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.

keep a cleaner house

3 cheers


Mamby Pamby has written 8 entries about this goal's definitely cleaner.

I told my mom that it was because I don’t have a TV in the living or dining room and it keeps the living/dining room from becoming a hang-out for old glasses, books, crafts, etc.
Mom said that that’s why italians lived in their basements – to keep the upstairs clean. Smoooth idea!!! I’m taking this one off of my list. I still want a cleaner house, but it IS cleaner and I can handle how it is now.

almost done

I think I’m ABOUT done with this goal. House is cleaner and easier to keep. I’m aiming for cleaning out the guest room and then maybe I’ll settle for “cleaner”.


Ok, it’s gotten dirty. BUT, it’s not REAL dirty, and I think I’ll fix it tomorrow. Since both of the dogs have died, it’s amazingly clean, comparatively speaking. I still dread having any blanket or piece of clothing touch the floor because I fear it’ll become covered in dog hair. Alas, those were the old days. Now we just have one cat who sheds a little and we really don’t notice it. Tomorrow, I pick up the bills and papers that are strewn around, take the camping box out to the garage, sweep a little, organize the pole room again. Easy. sooooo easy.

and NOW....

so, this newer house is MUCH cleaner. of course, we’ve just started living here. STill, there’s no dirty dishes, no scummy sinks…it just keeps getting cleaner and cleaner!

not here!

So, this house is a mess, but it’s not my FOREVER house.
I DO want to keep my next house MUCH cleaner than this house.
I want several mops and brooms. I want fewer dogs. I want MUCH LESS JUNK laying around to collect dust. A-fucking-MEN!

I'm FAILing!

yet tonight I will clean for an hour. Take THAT boyfriend!

tonight? the carpet

that is all. the carpet. better than nuthin!

New job, new schedule

Well, the house ain’t spotless, but I’ve been waking up two hours early in order to work out, practice bass guitar, make dog food, and CLEAN.
So, almost every morning, I do dishes and then I do something else like vaccuum and sweep
clean a refrigerator section
clean the bathroom, or microwave, or living room, etc.
It’s working out great.

Mamby Pamby has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
