one red paperclip

it all takes one red paperclip to get a HOUSE.


dali dali! basahin nyo! matutuwa kayoooo!

it was an impressive market idea. i never thought it was possible to get a house with just one typical red paperclip. but now i believe!!!

if you find it rather troublesome to click on the link i provided you i’ll be happy to explain it here. kyle macdonald’s goal is to get a house through a series of trades starting from one red paperclip.

he traded his one red paperclip for a fish pen. then traded it for a door knob. then traded it for a coleman stove which he traded for a red generator. then he traded it for a party then a famous skidoo – a trip to yahk – a cube van – a recording contract – a year in phoenix – an afternoon with alice cooper – then a kiss snow globe – then a movie role which was FINALLY traded for a house at 503 main street at the town of kipling saskatchewan, canada.

all in one year. awesome.
