Since the Internet provides access to products around the world, your challenge involves some global shopping. This year you have been given a budget of $10,000 to furnish and decorate your off-campus apartment. You have chosen a global theme. Your job is to find items from as many different parts of the world as you can to use in your apartment. You can spend up to $10,000 but you cannot exceed your budget. Do not forget that shipping must be included in your budget. You can choose more than a single item from any country.
(a) Visit the Internet to find products for your apartment. You need to furnish a one-bedroom apartment. You do not need to worry about major appliances (computer, television, stereo, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.), but you do need everything else. Since you plan to host a major party in your new apartment, everything you buy must be delivered within six weeks.
(b) Provide a list of all of the items you would buy, the cost of each item, and the total money spent. Organize your list by the room the item is intended for. Be sure to identify the country of origin for each item. Have fun shopping!
