AMAZING! Woman Trades Bobby Pin for a Free House
Many years ago a man traded his way from having a red paperclip and ending up with a house.
Some of you might remember this guy and this thing because it was a pretty big deal when it happened. Just think about how insanely difficult it must have been to trade a single paperclip for something of a little more value over and over and over again until you finally end up with a house.
The man who did this, Kyle MacDonald, traded his red paperclip for a fish-shaped pen, then traded that for a funny looking doorknob, then a camp stove, then traded that for a generator, then traded it for an “instant party” which is a keg with a neon sign on it basically, then traded that for a snowmobile.
Then he traded the snowmobile for a van, then traded the van for recording contract, who then traded the contract for a 1 year rent free house in Phoenix. He then traded the rent free house for a year in order to get a meeting with Alice Cooper. He traded that meeting for a Kiss snowglobe which he then traded for a paid role in a movie, which he then traded for a house.
Well, guess what? Someone else decided that they could do something similar and traded a bobby pin for a free house.
TikToker Demi Skipper has successfully traded a bobby pin for a free house in Nashville, Tennessee.
The San Francisco native started the “Trade Me” project back on May 26 in 2020 on social media platforms TikTok and Instagram. Skipper then spent a year and a half with the mission to trade up by swapping items with higher and higher value until she could turn a bobby pin into a home.
Demi has acquired and given away everything from margarita glasses, an Xbox, a snowboard and more. She had even gotten her hands on a Wildbound Tiny Cabin and other items she traded up included a Honda CRV, three tractors and a $40,000 trailer with a Tesla Powerwall 2.
