Well, I'm sure some of you have heard of this, but there is a blogger from Canada who has been working on converting a red paper clip into a house. Seriously. Kyle MacDonald started with a single red paper clip about a year ago. It was his goal to trade the paper clip for something just a little bigger and a little better. He would then repeat the process until he could trade for a house. He has finally succeeded. I must admit, I wouldn't have thought of doing it, but I do have tip my hat to him. Hmmm....I wonder if I could do the same to get the money to pay off my car loan? Anyone want to trade for an old, dry ball point pen? Anyone? No one? *sigh* back to doing it the old fashioned way, I guess . . .
