e.g.
Budget: £10
Time limit: 2 months
Target: maximum number of seperate purchases from different sellers.


Budget: £20
Time limit: 10 days
Target: maximum weight of purchases not including packaging.


Budget: £0.50
time limit: 1 calendar month
target: maximum distance from seller location to buyer location for a physical delivery

The winner of each round gets to keep all of the stuff ordered by the losing competitors.

       Yes I suppose you could have a budgetary target as well, e.g. 10 items delivered from 10 different sellers, winner is person with smallest bill (or largest)
