bought my GS cookies

March 10th, 2012 at 04:32 am

I broke down and bought one (1) box on Wednesday. Now I'll have to ignore for the rest of the season. Big Grin My traditional rules of buying cookies were this:

Last day of the sale.
Buy on the fly - no preorders.
Buy whatever is my favorite from the limited choice.
Parent should be nearby and only as an observer and doing security.
Girl(s) have to be the saleswomen and do the entire thing...
Discuss their product
Do the math
Take the money
Make the change
Thank the customer

I passed by a stand at the grocery store and with the exception of it not being the last day, every thing else was met. I bought a box of a new flavor, Thank You Berry Munch, that had dried cranberries in it. The salesgirl assured me that those cookies went well with coffee as she was asking another girl to help another customer and a third girl to help me with change. CEO material there!

    I used to buy when my nieces were in Girl Scouts, but the cookies are not much of a temptation for me. I actually love the cheap store brand oatmeal cookies I get at Jewel, and they are my vice!

    our cadettes meet all of the above requirements, but then they have been doing it 5 years now! We had the cranberry last year, but the lemon/powdered sugar this year. and CB-beware the transfats in those cheap oatmeal cookies, my organic husband banned it in our house (hard to do but almost completely gone in our purchases).

    Good for you with just buying one box. I bought several from a family friend, and I think I ate most of them myself. I eat them all in one or two sittings, with a good, trashy book. I like to just get the calories over and done with!

    Only the males in my house buy Girl Scout cookies. Their rule is: if it is being sold and they have cash, buy it.

    The scouts I bought from were very cute and shy so I waited until they asked me if I wanted to buy some cookies (mom was standing back quietly) - I made it a (kind of) formal transaction, asking questions then buying the really irresistible Dulce de Leche cookies.
