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!
