Roy Rogers was a girl scout, eh....? lol

I ordered 7 boxes from our friends. Then my old neighbor called and reminded me it was "that time" again. So I ordered 12, 5 for me, 7 for my sister. Then my husband came home with a few boxes from someone at work.

Needless to say, my boys have got their lunch cookies taken care of for the next month or two.

My kids and I bought some the other day...Samoas. Yummy. We stopped on the side of the road as we saw a whole family waving down cars to sell cookies! I still remember the grateful faces of that family. That was our good deed for the day and mmmmm, was it good too!

when I stared in Brownies, Girl scout cookies sold for 35 cents a box. They did go up to 50 cents when I wsa in high school.

I buy them strictly for support - I think they don't taste very good - especially for how much they cost. I remember them tasting better - not sure if it is the cookie or my old taste buds!

I do not presently have anyone selling them. The price varies in the different states/areas. My G'Dau in AZ sold them a dollar cheaper than in the San Diego area. I offered to donate $5 to a girl and just forget the cookies but she said they could not take donations. The GSA get such a small amt of money from the cookies it is shameful. My son had to buy 30+ boxes 2 yrs ago when people refused to take their cookies! One was a 20 box order from one family. He said NO MORE selling. I think the girls should collect the money at the time of ordering.

If anyone knows anyone selling them in the Little Rock Area tell them to head my way, my wife and I will buy them out!

All my neices are grown now so my cookie source has dried up there and my Great-neice isn't old enough to join yet.

Actually, the studious scout might set up a website and sell them online, gathering business from those who have no scouts to buy them from. (hint hint hint)

Just like MicheleMarie I too buy them for support. My guys are in boy scouts and they sell popcorn and they went door to door to sell it (It's partly our fault because we wanted them to do a little legwork of their own and not get mom and dad to sell it at work or to people we knew). Now a days its pretty disappointing since no one would buy their popcorn (atleast around where I live) and I felt so sad seeing their down faces when they sold 1 after going to 20 odd homes.

We have so many affluent people around but most with a please don't bother us attitude.

I personally can't resist buying from little kids who are trying to make a diffference and contribute to a good cause be it little girls or boys.
