Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I don't buy them anymore, too many moms at work who are selling them for their kids....I would go broke and would surely gain twenty pounds because I wouldn't share...lol
I was a Girl-scout back in the day. I love the cookies but the only "fundraising" benefit is for the cookie vendor. I dont think that parents should be peddling the cookies for the kids. Immediate friends and family are one thing but i hate getting hit up to buy from kids I dont have a connection with. I prefer to just donate a couple of bucks to the troop vs buying cookies. More $$ for the troop vs the cookie vendor. My bad???
One of my friends would ask me to buy cookies and then expect me to drive the 30 minutes to pick them up. I never did. She never delivered them either....i guess she got stuck paying for them.

Karen R. They are $4.00 a box. My little friend (5 years old) hit me yesterday for 3 boxes. 1 for me,1 for DH and (oh yes she did this) 1 for her. Said I never have cookies when she comes over. So today I will be making her choc chip cookies, I felt bad.
I'm right there with you! I have two girls in Scouting, a Junior and a Senior and we are picking up our cookies tomorrow. Good luck! We will be eating, breathing and sleeping cookies for the next couple of weeks too!
Anyone remember when they were just .50 a box???? Way back.
Nope....but we get tons of buyers who say "When I was a girl scout....." they tell us stories and prices. I love it!
Love Girls Scout cookies !!and i remember when i was little my mom was our leader, and we had boxes and boxes stacked up in our house while waiting to get them to all the other Girls scouts .. this year they are $4.00 a box and you dont have to pre order , they will have the cookies on hand to sell
