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.

rlostraccoToo much stuff and nowhere to put it

My bedroom is constantly getting messy. I have drawers but my closet is just ordinary. No shelving and I am financially stuck right now. I hae so many things that I could probably throw out but won’t just because I may need them one day. Help me organize! It’s pretty sad that my 16 year old daughter has better organizational skills than I do… 4 years ago


My room is now clean enough that I can begin the sorting process. Lots of purging—and LOTS of dust!! My goal next weekend is to begin to tackle the closet. 5 years ago


Well, the laundry is folded and put away. I am going to take the room by sections. Tomorrow’s job will be to sort through the odds and ends of Christmas decorations that just ended up in the bedroom by default. Have to just start somewhere!! 5 years ago

Mary Catherine MillerFinally!

I finally got my room organized. My daughter helped me for a few hours yesterday because I can’t do the lifting and carrying, and I finished up today! Whoopeee! All this space! 5 years ago

Tabetha SmelserGonna Finish Today

I am going to really bust my butt and get this room organized today. No more putting it off, I am just going to get it done. Then I am going to dust and sweep, and call this goal complete. If I don’t get it done today, then I will tomorrow, but still, it is going to get done! 6 years ago


I’m always cleaning my room because it always becomes messy after i clean it. 6 years ago

Tabetha SmelserMore done!

I finished all of my dusting today and got my computer desk and dresser switched around. My computer was in front of the a/c so it got too cold to sit at the desk. I like the layout of my room better now! And having all of the dusting done is great! We swept the floors and gathered up most of the trash and recycling and have a handful of things to take out to the garage. If we do that and get the laundry done, my room will be completely clean for once in what seems like years. I am truly excited to be this close to being done. 6 years ago

MJ1986First & Second day

For some reason, I like keeping staff even if I don’t use them. so my room is really in a huge mess.

Few weeks ago I got rid of my high school books & papers and just kept few of them as a memory. I used to keep them for our family members who will be in high school in the next few year, and might need to use them. Since that the educational system changed, the books are useless, so I was able to throw them without any feeling of guilt.

Now I’m working on my college papers. I don’t want to throw them until I graduate, so I got some of those paper boxes and filled one of them with the papers. I’ll keep it in the reading room.

For the CDs, I’ll keep them all in a file instead of boxes or cd bags. I have alot of those cd refill pages, I think they are much flexible than boxes or bags.

What I’m done with so far are the electronics & cables drowers. Still have to work with the clothes, CDs, books, papers, magazines and many other staff. 6 years ago

Tabetha SmelserAlmost there!

So, I am actually almost done cleaning my room! I got my husband to take 6 boxes out of our room that was full of stuff we didn’t need in here. And you know, I still think there is a lot of stuff we need to take out of this room. We honestly don’t use anything up here other than clothes, the bed, the lamps and the computer, so it could be all cleaned out and I probably wouldn’t think anything of it.

Anyway, my goals for today is to get the dusting done, switch around the dresser and computer desk, sweep and put away the rest of the laundry. I think I can get that done! 6 years ago
