Read All About This Amazing Story At My Companion Website: Et CeteraKyle MacDonald started out a post on his blog by stating:This red paperclip is currently sitting on my desk next to my computer. I want to trade this paperclip with you for something bigger or better, maybe a pen, a spoon, or perhaps a boot. If you promise to make the trade I will come and visit you, wherever you are, to trade. So, if you have something bigger or better than a red paperclip to trade, email me with the details email@example.com. Hope to trade with you soon! Kyle. P. S. I'm going to make a continuous chain of 'up trades' until I get a house. Or an Island. Or a house on an island. You get the idea.See a video of the CNN report on his feat here: CNN: One Red Paper Clip

But one year ago, the 26-year-old blogger from Montreal actually set out to do it, hoping to trade one red paper clip for something and that thing for something else, over and over again until, he dreamed, he just might end up with a house. Kyle MacDonald, it turns out, has actually pulled it off!! On Wednesday the journey is will come to an end just as MacDonald had dreamed: he will become the proud owner of a three-bedroom, 1,100-square-foot home provided by the town of Kipling, Saskatchewan!!!
