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.

I have managed to do pretty well at saving and I am very proud of myself for that. I just don’t seem to budget well with the rest of my money and I am not sure why. I start off budgeting quite well at the beginning of the month but by the end I am using my credit card and going into my overdraft. This means the following month I pay this off but the same things happen.

Lets see if I can do any better in the month of May… 8 months ago

So I have set myself a budget and this month will be the first month for me to try it out. Its the only way I will be able to save enough for our house and not prolong it any more than it needs to be.

So lets just hope I can stick to it and don’t happen to set my eyes on any dresses I just can’t resist! 2 years ago
