Kyle MacDonald Trades One Red Paperclip for a House

Kyle MacDonald is famously known around the web as the Red Paperclip guy. He started with one red paperclip on July 12th, 2005 to make a series of trades for bigger or better things to fulfil his goal to become a house owner.

After one year and a series of 14 bigger and more bigger trade offs he has managed to finally get his own house.

It’s “official.” I’m going to trade one movie role for one house with the town of Kipling Saskatchewan. But nothing’s official until Dom and I go to Kipling and shake hands with the Mayor.

The red paperclip guy Kyle MacDonald finally won his house for free with this unique idea.
