Kyle MacDonald - One Red Paperclip

Kyle MacDonald has been trying to trade his way from one red paperclip to a house for about 1 year and it seems the town of Kipling Saskatchewan has ended his journey for a house by trading a role in Corbin Bernsen’s movie Donna on Demand for a house in Kipling.

It took Kyle 14 trades over the course of almost a year to go from one single red paperclip to a house.

Cool to see anther great idea succeed. Check out Kyle’s blog for more information.
