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.

- The Robots.

Really fast to set a budget. Being able to look at past spending makes it pretty easy to zero in a reasonable amount. I feel some confidence about being able to save for a house down payment. 10 months ago

JackEverymanHaven't had a budget that I've stuck to ever.

Always had a preponderance of debt or a surplus of cash. Need to plan. 10 months ago

I joined a week ago and wow what an eye opener! It has access to my bank account so it breaks down my spending. I spend way more money on eating out then I could have imagined. Next month will be my first full month. I am excited because I can track my spending in real time. 10 months ago

sea_stormI did this...

And realised I’m overspending a lot and not saving enough. But I can’t really shave much off my expenses so I’ll probably have to get another job if I want to start saving properly. I’m not going to mark this done because at this point I’m not happy where I’m at financially and this will probably need to be reassessed several times in the coming months/years. 13 months ago
