Transcript for Woman wants to trade a bobby pin for a house
We are back now with a tiktok star who is moving on up. Her pandemic side project has earned her millions of followers as she shares her journey attempting to trade her way to owning a house and wait until you see what she is starting with. Demi skipper is on a mission to own her first house. But she's not in the market to buy, she's looking to trade. I started the trade me project in may of 2020 with a quest to trade a single Bobby pin for a house. That's right. A Bobby pin. A Canon camera. Documenting every swap on social media she's captivated millions of followers. If it sounds familiar, well, it's been done before by Kyle McDonald in 2006 with his one red paper clip he bartered to a house. During quarantine we have so much time to kill, I might as well try it myself and, yes, I, you know, I recorded the first video and thought, let's see what happens. Reporter: Her rules are simple. Find people who are interested in the item I have and also willing to trade. These people can't be anyone I know and the trades can't include any cash. Sounds easy, right? Reporter: In two months demi trading everything from a vacuum cleaner to even a macbook pro. It feels like a full time job. I am up at 5:00 A.M. Every day. Reporter: Sometimes she spends days planning and prepping for the next best swap. Ebay, craigslist, yeah, you name it, I've tried it. Reporter: We caught up with her during trade 13 and it's her biggest get yet. So now I have a red minivan. This couple trading their car for an iPhone 11 getting her closer to the goal of a house. I think now it's different with a vehicle. Something that you can actually drive around. It makes it feel that more real. And demi says when she does eventually get that house you know what she's going to do, she's having a housewarming party inviting everyone who has traded with her along the way. We will keep an eye on all this.
