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.

Noodles84Scheduled last payment

I scheduled my final payment for June 13. Once it clears I count this goal completed. And I’ll debt free (expect my student loans). 6 months ago

Noodles842 more payments

I let my credit card bill just simmer for the last months (so I could pay off my car). I still owe $441.68. Paying $225.41 on next paycheck. And then I pay off the rest next paycheck. After that I’ll be debt free. 7 months ago

mholikOne. More.

Just one. That’s it!!! And we’re going to pay off some smaller loans before we tackle the final card. Whee, that’s a relief to have that one gone. 8 months ago

mholikTax return!

Cut one in half, I should be able to eliminate it by the end of May or sooner. Then there is only ONE between the two of us, wheeee! 8 months ago


Woohoo! Income tax came. Credit card is paid off. Closing it as soon as my check clears. 8 months ago

funniculeeThis is going to happen sooner than I thought!

Barring disaster, I should be able to pay this off completely by the end of next month – maybe even the end of THIS month! I’m waiting to be reimbursed for some work-related expenses, and it’s not clear how much I will be reimbursed for (grr), but even a conservative estimate will let me pay off most of this balance (yay!!).

That’s a pretty cool feeling. My fiance has also offered to help me pay off the very last of my car loan(s) this month as well, which will be wonderful. I’m looking forward to helping him pay off his car as well, once all my smaller debts are done. 8 months ago


My desktop computer died. So I had to buy a new computer. While, the computer itself was a good deal I’m back up to $428 in debt.

I want to debt free in five months. So I am going to have $86 a month. I’ll try to put $100 down in April just to keep on top of it. 9 months ago

Kaylee ThompsonFrustrated

I usually pay it off in full every month, but last year it got a little out of hand because we had an emergency. That in itself wouldn’t be such a big problem; the problem is that they’re charging me around $30 in fees every month. So if I pay $70, only $40 of that will go towards paying my balance, and the rest is sucked up by the stupid fees.

My income is very small right now, so I can’t make big payments, and with the $30 fee, progress is very slow.

This is very frustrating for me, because I’m used to paying it off in full every month, and now I feel like I’m barely making any progress at all, even though I’m giving them everything that isn’t going towards rent or food. 9 months ago


As of this month, my largest one is FINALLY PAID OFF. 9 months ago

funniculee45% done!

Next month is going to be a little complicated – I have to go to a conference for work. I will be reimbursed for everything, but I may need to use my card (depending on how my other expenses shake out).

Really good motivation for keeping exquisite track of all my work related spending in that regard! 10 months ago
