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.

New '07 budget!

I started a new budget at the beginning of the year and it is working out really well so far. My husband and I have been trying to figure out how to put together the right kind of budget for our family for years now…

We decided that I would get a certain amount per month for the things that are really easy for me to overspend on like knitting supplies, clothes- for both me and the kids, fun things for the house, etc. I really feel like I am spending the right amount on things and I also have a way to save for bigger purchases that I really want.

grocery shop weekly

Well, I finally did it! I picked 5 dinners and shopped on Sunday for the week. It really made my week easier. I only had to send my husband to get last minute ingredients once. Now I just need to figure out how to do my planning so that I am ready to shop on Sunday. I also need to figure out how to go shopping without the our little ones!
