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.

Annie da SilvaThird bag!!

This is my third bag of junk/clothes that I’ve decided to get rid of!!! Feels so good purging through all this old stuff :)
Might need to treat myself to a cute new outfit! 21 months ago

Annie da SilvaBook donations!

Upon going through all my ‘stuff’ I found some old books I loved while reading them! I definitely don’t have the space so this box plus another full one is going to the local library! 21 months ago

forgotmyheadSlow but steady

I’ve even got G on the lookout for things to give away/return/donate and we’ve started a facebook group with our friends for a book swap. We’ve been filling a box and bag slowly to take to goodwill, not as much stuff as I’d like but it’s hard for us to part with things. We’re packrats! I did a big clean of my work areas but I still need to go through and see what I can do without. 2 years ago

forgotmyheadFilled a box

it wasn’t a very large box, but I put some kitchen stuff we don’t use it in. And a dress that I haven’t worn since grade 9. And I marked the first day of my reading week as “decluttering day” and asked G if he would help. And I’m going to go take it to goodwill tomorrow. :) 2 years ago

forgotmyheadMy house is getting more and more cluttered

and I don’t even have that much space. It’s getting really out of control and honestly, I can’t find very much to get rid of. Mostly because I’m a crafter and a design student so I see things and say “oh, I could use that for something!” and then I put it in a box with other random things I could use :S Also, I don’t like getting rid of things I actually spent money on. It makes me cry inside. And it doesn’t help that my bf is the same way. We have a lot of stuff. It’s probably the first thing people think when they come into our house. We have a lot of stuff on display. Because there’s nowhere else to put it.

I think during my reading week I need to set aside a day to declutter. :S 2 years ago
