Personal Shopper Assignment


You've opened up a business to be a personal shopper for busy people who don't want to deal with the crowds. Little do they know you won’t have to deal with the crowds either.  You’re going to shop for everything online. 

Your first client is Mr. Burns.  He's very wealthy and doesn't worry about the best deal in town so lowest price should not be your priority. However, he does want everything by the end of the week so you'll have to find everything fast.

Also, since this is a rush job, you get to charge him 15% on top of the total cost instead of your usuall 10%


Search for each item below and keep track of it on Google Docs Spread sheet. Go to your "Drive", Create, Spread Sheet

Make a column for each name, each item, vendor (the company you bought it from), each item’s price, and tax. 


Remember to format your cells for currency where needed. 


HINT: The best way to do this is to copy the exact name of the item and paste into Google and do a search.
