    I am intrigued but too lazy to read that blog! Tell us more, how does this work?

    I think I have a Mickey Rubix Cube somewhere. And Mickey Mouse diaper pins still on the card. I have tons I could trade really.

    Ok, that is what I thought. Just something to keep in mind, a larger, heavier item will be more costly to ship. I have to go through my things and see what I can find.

    where did you get that Pluto?? I'd love that but I don't know what to trade you. Where did you get it?

    To refer back to the red paperclip story, which I have heard of before, my friends & I have played a game very similar to it, called "Bigger and Better." You can go in groups and your goal obviously is to get the biggest and best items from random peoples' homes. Everyone in your group starts off with a pen and you go door to door and try to trade your pen for something that is bigger & better. You set a certain time, to allow enough time, but not too much time for people to collect their items. You will be amazed. And the items you trade are permanent. So if someone ever does come to your door to trade something with you, make sure it's something you wouldn't mind giving away for good. It's a fun game for college students, especially. Both years I've done it, the girls have lost b/c the boys are such cheaters! Anyway, any college students out there should try it out!
