Woman Who Started Her ‘Trade Me Project’ With Just A Bobby Pin Has Finally Landed Herself A House

If determined, anything is achievable.

Demi Skipper launched her trading project to make multiple trades during the global pandemic. She started with a bobby pin but soon upgraded to shoes, electronics, and even cars along the way. Last December, the 30-Year-Old traded up to a Wildbound Tiny Cabin but had her mindset on a bigger, more permanent home. 

Demi Skipper, who started the Trade Me Project, has reached her goal & now she’s an owner of a HOME.

The San Francisco woman started with just a bobby pin!

On TikTok and Instagram, Skipper continued to trade up for a Honda CRV, three tractors, a Chipotle celebrity card, and a $40K trailer with a Tesla Powerwall. The San Francisco woman made her final trade on the day after Thanksgiving, swapping the trailer for a house near Nashville. A building she and her husband called HOME.

Her new home was traded to her by a house flipper who had been following her journey.

In one of her TikTok clips, Skipper told her audience she was looking for something to do during the pandemic when she was struck with the idea. She has been using platforms like Facebook, eBay, and Craigslist to trade one item at a time. She’s now a prouder owner of a house – all from trading with just a single bobby pin.

Throughout twenty-eight trades, Skipper went from a bobby pin to earrings, to an Xbox One, numerous cars, a tiny cabin, and even to a penultimate trade: $40,000 trailer. She recently made it up to some big-ticket items, including three red tractors, which she eventually traded in a sponsored video for a Chipotle celebrity card. The card was traded for a $40K trailer with a Tesla Powerwall 2.

Skipper later found a Chipotle superfan to take the card in exchange for an off-the-grid trailer worth $40,000.

It was late last month; Skipper got a message from a man who flips houses in Tennessee. According to DailyMail, the man claimed he had watched her trading up and would like to end her journey by giving her a home for the trailer. She shipped the trailer to him, then flew to Nashville and drove to Clarksville to get the keys to her new house. 

Reportedly, Skipper has since found the whole thing has been so surreal.

She has plans to start all over, but to donate the next home she scores to someone who needs it.

NBC News reported that Skipper found the whole thing has been so surreal. However, she and her husband are now planning to relocate from California to Tennessee to live in their house. Then again, she has plans to start all over, but to donate the next home she scores to someone who needs it. “There’s been a couple of people who have done this once, but one’s crazy enough to do it twice.” Skipper stated. 

She had swapped a computer for this electric bike food truck, valued at anywhere from $1,800 to $4,000.

However, here’re photos of some of the swaps Skipper made to achieve her goal: A permanent home.
