Occupation - Stay at Home Mom
Location - Farmington, Missouri

Brenda Tanner is a stay at home mother. After she feeds her kids and husband and leave for work she gets to work on cleaning up. Cleaning the kids rooms, her room and the rest of the  house. After the house is spotless she gets to the flyers. Looking through them all and clipping out her needed coupons for shopping that day. Putting her collected coupons in an envelope, grabbing her purse and keys Brenda was out the door and to the store being in a rush since she took longer then she anticipated. Moving through the grocery store as fast as possible missing a few items she needed but was able to make it through the check out isle and back to her home right before her kids. Later that night when talking with her friend, she was suggested a new website that had saved her a lot of money. Curious about this suggestion, after the phone call Brenda looked the site up and noticed that a competing grocery from what she went to, down the street, was having a sale. Looking at the items she realized she could have saved more money then what she did with the coupons just by going to the sale and saved time to boot.

Anthony Russo a gamer in college always want to stay on top of the best gaming technology but usually does not have the funds is always looking for the best deal. He searches over and over on the web to find something in his budget but it is too time consuming that he is searching more for the new technology that he barely has time to play the games he has, between his classes and homework. Frustrated at what was going on he gave up on looking at the webpages moving to his phone to text his friends to see what they were up to. He noticed a notification from an app reading flash sale. Curious as to what it meant by flash sale he booted up the application and saw to his disbelief the new gaming console he wanted in his price range. Without a second glance his fingers moved quickly afraid it would sell out, putting it in his cart and bought it right then and there. Through his Venmo he paid for the item instead of wasting time entering his information. The console would be on its way the next day. With a grin he texted his friends gloating.
