Would you like to take part in the paper clip challenge?

Tanya from Burwood

Hi all (this is my mum's account - I don't have my own), I've been set the paper clip challenge in my high school commerce class, where you start with a paper clip and trade it up for another item, which you then trade up for another item, etc (if you’ve not heard of this … View moreHi all (this is my mum's account - I don't have my own), I've been set the paper clip challenge in my high school commerce class, where you start with a paper clip and trade it up for another item, which you then trade up for another item, etc (if you’ve not heard of this challenge, see link below to learn more).

I've done pretty well so far; I've traded up to a Vodafone Smart V8 (VFD710) in amazing condition. It’s barely used, factory reset, and has no marks or scratches (see photos attached and link for specs). It looks like it retails for around $120 e.g. from Ebay (see link below).


Do any of you or someone you know need a phone, and have something of a bit higher value but that you have no use for, and would be happy to trade for the phone? If you do, please reply to this post, or message me directly.

Or it might not be a phone that you want. If there’s something else you’re after, and you’ve got something suitable to trade it for, let me know, in case it comes up in one of my later trades.

I can put updates on here to let you know how the challenge goes 😊

Thanks so much for your time!!

However, some people believe school should actually be more practical, teaching kids to change tyres and balance their finances. Thinking about all the skills that have benefited you over the years, tell us what would be taught at your School of Life?

It's been 13 years since the 2011 earthquake - a day many of us will never forget.

If you'd like to look back on Christchurch as it was before the earthquakes hit you may wish to head to Google Maps today and see past images of your old school, workplace or favourite haunts.

How to do it:
- Head to Google Maps and click the yellow man icon in the bottom right corner.
- If you search an address or location then move him to a spot on the map, it brings up Street View.
- There is a black menu and usually an option to "See more dates". You can view that spot on the map in past Google street images.

Feel free to share any of your finds on Neighbourly for others to see!
