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.

akamal$3000

If i spend $3000 more I will receive $100 voucher.

I will probably stop spending at $2700 then wait for when I’m able to use the voucher, as it is auto-issued once quota is reached. 3 weeks ago

I have accrued 59 points out of 100, which will become a $100 voucher. Once I receive the next voucher I will stop using this card. 1 month ago

jflower3I need to take my card back out of my wallet

I had to sign up to take a test for my job - which could ultimately help me keep my job - so I had to use my card but I will pay that off next time I get paid. I really have to get out of this cycle where I spend money ahead of getting paid though. That is crucial! Once I break this cycle, it won’t be an issue anymore because I’ll have that money in my pocket instead of having to pay off what I put on the card last paycheck. 2 years ago

I closed all 3 of my cards. I have yet to pay off the balances which is my plan with taxes this year. Credit card companies are thieves and are out for themselves. It is better to work hard for money and save it to buy a big ticket item or go without the item. 2 years ago

jflower3I spent so much this weekend...

because of the girls’ birthdays. I’m not going to spend on my card, though! I’m going to lay very low, find cheap fun where I can and eke through until next paycheck. I will be fine! 2 years ago

I realized while paying my bills this weekend just how much money I would have left over each month if I weren’t using my credit cards to overspend. It’s really exciting actually! And, I haven’t spent any money on my card this year. It’s not even hard! It’s just a matter of deciding to do it (or not do it, as the case may be.) 2 years ago


jflower3Took the first step...

I took my credit card out of my wallet today and put it in a box of important papers, etc. by my bedside table. Now, that I’ve decided not to use it, I can see how I was relying on it to bail me out instead of just focusing on how much money I had available to spend in my checking. 2 years ago
