OMG Girl Scout Cookies!
Thursday, March 15, 2012
Someone shoot me if I volunteer to be Cookie Mom again! It's bad enough that I am leader of two troops, and then add the stress of Cookie Manager? Holy cow! I have personally bought two cases of cookies, they are taking up valuable space in my small living room, and I have nightmares about not being able to pay our cookie bill! If we didn't have to participate in GS sales to be able to make money, I wouldn't do it! We'd just do car washes and spaghetti dinners. Most people don't realize just how little troops get relative to the price of the damn things. They are $4 a box, and, at the level we are right now, we are making $0.40 a box. Forty cents! A box! WTF? So, we have gotten $4,000 worth of cookies from the warehouse and we will make $400. I guess it could be worse. Well, definately need to think of other ways to make money so we can do more. Next year, as Juniors, we are going to do so much more to raise money! Ugh...Oh, well, off to another booth to sell 8 boxes (not cases, boxes, sales suck this year!!)
