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.

This is Well done, wasn’t really tough, I got a pretty decent pay rise and we basically just pretended I didn’t.



WOOOO!!

Just had a HUGE boost to our savings, Turns out I was getting paid incorrectly for the past 2 years, two pay increases went by without them deducting my car and phone allowances like in my original contract. So my weekly wage just went up, but best of all the backpay is a MAD injection of funds!half on my car loan, half toNYC BABY!! Wooo!!



New York, New York!!

Technically the NYC money doesn’t count as savings, our actual savings account barely has anything in it. The America trip money however is coming along awesomely. Living on a super tight budget, selling our crap even, we made $190 with a trash and treasure stall last weekend, and I’ve already made like 200 bucks with rando eBay stuff!! It all looks good until next month when we go to the travel agent, lol!



Mini goals

We are starting to cost the trip out, it’s so much easier to save when everything is equated to how much entry to XYZ costs… We made enough for our book of morman tickets this weekend :)



Woo!!

I got a $1500 bonus at work today!! I got taxed to the hilt, but it still left me with $800 for the savings. Close to 10% again. It’s so easy when we have such a brilliant goal!!



Over half way...

We are saving $200 a week at least at the moment, so we are getting there.

Getting there…



Fail

A few bills came up, spent a bit too much when we were away… the same old story.



Purchase

We are buying a laptop, the opportunity came up and it was offered to us so cheaply it was hard to say no. My aim is to do it without touching our savings. This should be fine because I paid all the bills last week, but tough because we are going to The city this weekend.
