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.

Always remember to use my "green bags" when I go shop!

catherine's daughterAnother green thing on my list that I am doing!

I save printer paper that I have used,and I write notes on and keep it on my desk. I don’t write that many notes and so this paper is piling up!!! I have decided not to waste paper so I put the blank side back in the feeder and just print on the other side. They do this at work so why not at home. I really think they are doing this at work to save money, I could be wrong they could be trying to conserve trees! 5 years ago

catherine's daughterI am doing very well at this!!

As an added incentive, when you bring your own bags to Jewel Foods they give you a slip of paper to fill out with your name and phone # and you can win $25.00 in groceries if your name is picked. I could use those free groceries! Good luck to me! 5 years ago

I am getting so much better at remembering to bring my bags into the store with me. I am also glad to see more and more stores offering to sell their bags. 6 years ago

catherine's daughterI will try to leave this world a better place.

I bought 3 bags, one from work and two from the Jewel, one of them is even insulated, how cool (no pun intended) is that?! 6 years ago
