One of those real-life stories, you just can't make up! In 2005, Kyle MacDonald, a Canadian blogger wanted a new house, but he didn't want to acquire one like one normally would, he decided to go bartering (trading with others for stuff, which he used to do a lot with his friends as a kid) via Craigslist, until he got his dream house and it worked!
He started with
a pen shaped like a fish, which he traded for
a sculpted doorknob, which he traded for
a portable stove, which he traded for
An "Instant Party", which he traded for
a truck, which he traded for
a role in a movie, Bernsen was filming, which he traded for
Which he got almost a year after starting his journey. Another story about how the internet can lead to awesome things if used right!
