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.

So far I have a little over 1,000 in savings. I am determined to not take it out of my savings! I should be able to accomplish this goal soon since I start my job in the next couple of days.

Savings Update

Even though I have the big goal of saving 60,000 dollars by the time I am 31, I also wanted to have smaller savings goals, that could be accomplished faster.

I really want to focus on saving (and paying of my credit card), and trying really hard to not buy things that I do not need. Saving will also be easier since Alli is working on moving in, which means we can grocery shop together, and plan meals, and not have to use as much gas.

Savings total so far: $500.02

Putting this aside for now

So as much as I want to save, I think it is best to first pay off my credit card, and then put what I have left from the month into savings. I will continue to save, but not nearly as much as I had wanted to. I will also continue to put coins and, extra money I have into my piggy bank. For now the piggy bank is going to be used for the apartment, or other similar expenses. However, I am not going to count the money into it is full!
