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.

RachelJuly Summary

This month I spent $1,579.43, made $47.29, and got a $1500 refund. (Technically I have another paycheck from the 29th, but since I didn’t have direct deposit set up yet, I haven’t gotten it.)

$44 – non-food groceries
$216 – groceries
$36 – food out
$36 – alcohol
$525 – rent/bills
$30 – bus fare
$23 – meds

$276 – work/interview clothes
$110 – running shoes
$106 – other clothes/sunglasses
$78 – bike stuff
$25 – office supplies

$25 – entertainment
$26 – warrior dash
$15 – donations
$9 – misc

Savings is at $1500. CC balances are at $1,738.25. Available credit is around $1900. IRA balance (reserve) is around $800.

I’m trying to decide if I should transfer the ~$200 off a store card and onto one of my other cards, because the interest rate is way higher. On the other hand, I can use my other card for other stuff, and I may need it.

Those running shoes really hurt, but so did my knees & shins. I’d been using barefoot shoes, but I was running on surfaces made for running then, and now where I live, everything is paved.

Coming up:
No more clothes thankfully, unless I get an office job and need a few more things for that. If I get a job though, that doesn’t count.
Probably going to drop a lot of money on housing applications over the next couple of weeks, and then on a deposit of course.
It looks like my bike is only going to need one more $30 part, which is sweet. So I’ll have paid all of $30 for this bike, my second free bike from my roommates. They’re the best.
My rent will almost certainly be going up after I move, or at least the utilities will (everything’s included right now). I’m aiming for $500-$600, since that’s all I make at my current job. 4 months ago

MeRossyNot too shabby

I got a promotion! So I’m making slightly more money than I was before. Because I was so busy with the new job, I was able to save over 80% of my salary last contract, which is incredible. Now I just need to save some on vacation! 4 months ago
