It all started 1 Year Ago today
with the original One Lucky Cent. The original plan of sending the One Lucky Cent around the World didn't work out too well. There were numerous Lucky Cents just waiting to be found though and the New Trade Up plan
The first trade
came exactly 6 months after the start of the original plan. Michael and his family traded One Lucky Loonie for my One Lucky Cent. They also included a very nice surprise. The second trade
came just a few weeks later when Jeff Johnson from Minneapolis, Minnesota traded his One Lucky US Greenback Dollar, One Lucky US Dollar Coin and Jeff also decided to throw in One Lucky US Cent for extra good luck in exchange for my Loonie. The third trade
came just as fast as the second one. Chris, who just happens to be from my city of Winnipeg, traded One Canada 1954 Issue 2 Dollars Note, One Canada 1986 Issue 2 Dollars Note, One Canada 2 Dollars Coin (also known as a Toonie) and Chris threw in One Lucky Cent,
just like Jeff did, which he also found on the ground in exchange for the One Lucky US Greenback Dollar, One Lucky US Dollar Coin and One Lucky US Cent.
So here we are one year and three trades later. We may not have traded up to a house in one year like Kyle at OneRedPaperclip
did but we took One Lucky Cent that we found on the ground and increased it by 60,000%. We have met a few great people along the way which means more that what we're trading up for. If the journey ended today with me reaching a house or whatever I traded up for I'm sure I'd have mixed feelings. It's exciting to not know what's going to happen at any given time. I waited 6 months for the first trade and then the next two trades came within weeks.
Maybe we'll have another burst of trades 6 months after the first trade came after 6 months from the start date. Who knows what is going to happen but I'm looking forward to the journey. With one year and three trades gone by on this journey I'm looking forward to seeing how this all plays out for One Lucky Cent
