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.

calypsaticI consider this done!

Now that I’m finished with school, I won’t be passing Starbucks every morning. In order for me to get a Starbucks coffee now, I’d have to drive there… and I’m not willing to do that very often. =)

Unfortunately, Diet Dr. Pepper has replaced the coffee addiction for the time being, lol. At least it’s a lot cheaper of an addiction to maintain… 5 years ago


I haven’t had starbucks in over 2 weeks—- woo hoo! I don’t want to take this off my list because the second I take it off, I’ll probably start drinking tons more SB coffee haha.

It feels good knowing that I’ve saved a quite a bit of money by drinking less SB. If I can continue and drink less starbucks for 2 more months, I’ll consider the goal complete! =) 5 years ago


I didn’t realize just how much money I spent on Starbucks until I looked over a series of previous monthly statements. $4 a day+5 days a week is just ridiculous! That’s… $80 a month I could spend on something else! I know that I won’t be able to cut out starbucks completely, but I want to bring this down to about $20-25 a month.

To do this: I will set aside $25 at the beginning of the month in cash that I can spend on starbucks and coffee/energy drinks. Once this money runs out, then no more for the month! 5 years ago

upsanddownsI NEED to do this!

I’ve basically been a starbucks addict since I was 14 and its really pathetic. I frequently spend $5 a day just on coffee! I don’t have a job right now, so this is a huge drain on my funds. 5 years ago


I can’t do it! When I’m on the CORE Weight Watchers program, I can have a Soy Caramel Macchiato for no points. Its just too good.

:) Oh, well! 6 years ago


So, I’ve gone from drinking a grande to a tall every day for/with breakfast, next step for me is to only go to starbucks M/W/F.

Wish me luck! 7 years ago


I’ve cheated at this already. I asked for a grande sugar free ginger bread latte w/ skim milk (only a 110 calories) but they were out of the sugar-free syrup…but I got it anyway. 7 years ago

smith2pmJust the Frou Frou Drinks

I just wanna give up the mochas, frappuccinos, flavored lattes, etc…I’m hopong this will help me lose weight.

I literally work within walking distance of four (maybe more) Starbucks, and there is a Starbucks in the Grocery Store and Target by my apartment. 7 years ago

miserychastainbustin' up a starbucks...

so, i’m thinking that if i drink less starbucks, it will help me save money, which is another goal. i’m starting slow, though, because..well….lets face it. i’m addicted. :) so i’m going from a grande to a tall.

baby steps, right? 7 years ago


It is proving to be almost as difficult as quitting smoking…. damn their coffee and all it’s sugary sweetness…. 7 years ago
