Man Trades Paperclip for One Year's Free Rent

Posted on April 22, 2006

When we last left Kyle MacDonald he had managed to trade his red paperclip for several items. His last trade back in November was a red generator for an instant party. Since then his trades have included items like a skidoo and a trip to Yahk. And now the clever trader has worked his way upto one year's free rent at a rental house.

Good for Kyle. He has almost achieved his original goal: "I'm going to keep trading for bigger or better things until I get a house." He has a house for one year. Will he be able to achieve his ultimate goal of owning a home? You can keep up with Kyle's trading at his blog.
