I'll see your paperclip and raise you a house!

Just found this story today on CNN's site. Seems a guy had a huge red paperclip and decided to barter it for something better. Then take the new item and barter it for something better. And so forth. And so forth. And so forth. Until he had a house!

He doesn't have a house yet. But at this point he has one free year rent on a house in Phoenix. So he has made QUITE some progress since starting out with a red paperclip less than a year ago, wouldn't you say?!

It's a really cool story. Here's a link to his site in case you are interested to see what's been involved in the trades so far. I'm pretty sure he'll get there. Just a matter of when not if!
