Blogger Kyle MacDonald spent the last year trading up. His experiment went a little something like this:
- Take a weird red paperclip.
- Enter the paperclip in the barter section of Craig’s List along with the request to trade for something bigger or better.
- Suffer through pens, ceramic knobs, camping stoves, generators, beer kegs, snow globes, and appearances on Good Morning America.
- End the experiment when your final trade procures you a three-bedroom house in Kipling, Saskatchewan.
Bossy wants you to know she’s ready.
