Wow. that is some #hustlemania...Canadian blogger Kyle MacDonald, who bartered his way from a single #red paperclip📎 to a house🏠 in a series of fourteen online trades over the course of a year.
Here's a list of his trades: -On July 14, 2005, he went to Vancouver and traded the paperclip for a fish-shaped pen.
-He then traded the pen the same day for a hand-sculpted doorknob from Seattle, Washington.
-On July 25, 2005, he traveled to Amherst, Massachusetts, with a friend to trade the doorknob for a Coleman camp stove (with fuel).
-On September 24, 2005, he went to California, and traded the camp stove for a Honda generator.
-On November 16, 2005, he traveled to Maspeth, Queens and traded the generator for an "instant party": an empty keg, an IOU for filling the keg with the beer of the bearer's choice, and a neon Budweiser sign. This was his second attempt to make the trade; his first resulted in the generator being temporarily confiscated by the New York City Fire Department.
-On December 8, 2005, he traded the "instant party" to Quebec comedian and radio personality Michel Barrette for a Ski-Doo snowmobile.
-Within a week of that, he traded the snowmobile for a two-person trip to Yahk, British Columbia, scheduled for February 2006.
-On or about January 7, 2006, he traded the second spot on the Yahk trip for a box truck.
-On or about February 22, 2006, he traded the box truck for a recording contract with Metalworks in Mississauga, Ontario.
-On or about April 11, 2006, he traded the contract to Jody Gnant for a year's rent in Phoenix, Arizona.
-On or about April 26, 2006, he traded the year's rent in Phoenix for one afternoon with Alice Cooper.
-On or about May 26, 2006, he traded the afternoon with Cooper for a KISS motorized snow globe.
-On or about June 2, 2006, he traded the snow globe to Corbin Bernsen for a role in the film Donna on Demand.
