Blogger makes multiple swaps until she gets a truck

How much could you get without money? Many would think that it is impossible to get things without a single penny; however, Demi Skipper, a blogger from San Francisco, challenged herself to match the feat of Canadian Kyle McDonald, a boy who managed to get a house in 2005 through bartering.

The main rule of this challenge is to use absolutely no money and just use one item to get another. Demi opened an Instagram account to document her experiment. She started by offering a bobby pin and four days later she had already made two changes. The first for some earrings and the second for some crystal glasses.

Little by little the objects that I obtained were increasing in value; he managed to acquire from an Xbox to a computer. People knowing about the challenge have been encouraged to participate.

In the middle of last July, the blogger managed to exchange an iPhone 11 Pro for a Dodge Caravan truck. See how it started:
