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.

ms. walking on sunshineJust...

bought that lovely makeup bag. :)
And it was an absolute bargain. 9 years ago

MarieStardustA Guy Laroche corset...

So beautiful.
Worth more than one month’s salary.

Got it for, well, basically, the price of a carton of cigs. Yay. I love going shopping with GothNoodle. 9 years ago

ms. walking on sunshineBought...

a couple of really nice things last week.
But still haven’t found the boots I am looking for. 9 years ago


Last week I went to a high-fashion store and bought two shirts, on clearance, and they cost me $25. I think maybe I’ll do this every couple of weeks. This way its gradual, but I can still feel good about updating my wardrobe. =) 9 years ago

MarieStardustYesterday's shopping

was such an important step I consider the goal Done. I’ll do it again, of course. 9 years ago

MarieStardustI have something to say.

I just spent some money on clothes.
Not much money.
Some spare change. A few coins.

I lie.
I spent 600€.
But, errrrr, it’s couture. It’s designer clothes, from a secret spot that sells them much cheaper than their real price.

I now have some sort of cloak, very weird, wool and cashmere, black with a bright pink lining and embroideries in vivid colors.
I now have a dress that must have been made for me. It’s heaven in fabric and lace. It’s kimono-like, it’s long with long sleeves, it’s very original and unconventionnal. I’m in love.
Last and least, I now have a very 50’s, old-lady dress so unfashion it’s terribly trendy. 9 years ago

ms. walking on sunshineSaw...

this purse today.
I’d so buy it if there was any way to get it here. Just love it. 9 years ago

ms. walking on sunshineWill...

go shopping in two weeks time. After I have been paid. ;)

Would like to get leather boots that resemble riding boots and a nice new bag. One that is close to the one pictured. 9 years ago

MarieStardustI just noticed,

reading the previous entries for this goal, that I always bought pink stuff. Which is funny, because I’m not a very pinky girl – or so I thought -, and I own very few pink items.
But I take it as the sign of a new trend. I’m allowing myself to wear girl stuff, at last. 9 years ago

MarieStardustClose, but not cigar...

I didn’t buy clothes. I bought lingerie. Why is it so much easier to buy lingerie than clothes?
Pink satin and black lace. Pretty. 9 years ago

MarieStardustNew shoes.

Cheap & nice. Pink salomés from André, 30€. How could I live without pink shoes? 9 years ago

MarieStardustNice first step.

Wonderful pink dotted dress by Doria Salambo.

Shamefully expensive, got it for nothing (I mean, litterally nothing: a ridiculous 30€, and anyway my godmother paid for it). She bought some wonderful stuff for herself, too.

I mean, Xuly Bet dresses for 25€, and Sadio Bees to die for (see above) at 40.

Why must I be broke just this month? 9 years ago


... though I can’t really afford it. Not with all the shrinks, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, psychawful & so on I quite litterally spend my life with. 9 years ago
