One Red PaperclipTrade one paperclip for one house. Deal. That's what Kyle McDonald did. He's a young man from British Columbia (Canadia) who started with one red paperclip and then started to "up-trade" for bigger and better things. We keep talking about Craigslist.org around here, and this is a perfect example of why it is so wonderful. He posted the Paperclip onto http://www.craigslist.org/ and then he got a trade. Then went back and got a better trade. It started to spiral out of control. AMAZING.
He traded a paper clip for a pen, for a doorknob, for a grill, etc, etc.... Alice Cooper got involved and then there were recording contracts and snow globes and movie roles on the trading block. It is quite amazing the people that Kyle met and traded with. Finally he ended up with a house on Main Street in Kipling, Saskatchewan. 503 Main Street to be exact.
Check out his story and see what you can trade for bigger and better things. Have fun!
