What will you give me for.....

I mentioned in an earlier post that there was a story behind the paper clip, well, one paper clip in particular. It was a giant red paper clip which Kyle McDonald used to trade up to a house in Saskatchewan. Here is the story from Wikipedia.

MacDonald made his first trade, a red paper clip for a fish-shaped pen, on July 14, 2005. He reached his goal of trading up to a house with the fourteenth transaction, trading a movie role for a house. This is the list of all the transactions MacDonald made:[2]
Here is the official site of the Red Paper Clip. Read their mission statement. It's fun. Also look at their list of crazy ideas under the Ideas tab. I may just have to try one. Or create my own.

Here's the challenge. Start trading something and let me know what happens!!

Have a fun day!!
