    Hey everyone,

    Many of you know Kyle MacDonald, or the "Red Paperclip Guy". In 2006 he traded his way up from a red paperclip to a house. You can see exactly how he did that here. Like many others, I was inspired by this and decided to try it out for myself. It's very possible that this has already been attempted on EMC, but I thought I'd give it a go myself. I'm going to call this the "Dirt to Diamonds Experiment" I'm not necessarily trading up to diamonds, but I want to trade up as far as I can. I will keep track of all trades on this thread and this thread will also act as my trading service. Keep in mind that there aren't any items that I don't want!

    Note: Whatever I trade up to will be given away. I'm not doing this to make rupees, this is an experiment.
