Cookies are never a big temptation for me either. . My daughter sells between 700 - 1000 every year too. . and there are always at least 150 - 300 boxes in our house for sale and I just never want to touch them. . My hubby goes on eating binges and I have to track them when they disappear into his belly. . But it is what it is. .

I am impressed with my girls. . They are 8th graders now and a couple of my girls decided a few years a go they were done with booth sales. . this year our goal is to get to GA and both of them are doing booth sales to pull their weight for the trip! And many of my girls who only sell 100 - 200 boxes doubled their presales this year and are working harder on getting to 300 boxes. I am over all really proud of them!

Go Team Golden Phoenix!

Our booth sales have been really low this year. And my 3 new girls don't want to work them as they might be "seen". So the "old faithful" girls are working like crazy and carrying the troop. Really annoying. I gave them the speech Tuesday night about how we use these funds for our programs, trips, etc. They want to go to Europe on their sr/amb trip . .. . and they sure won't get that with 50-100 packages as a goal.
Funny, my daughter always sells over 1000 boxes, so we have a lot of stock in our house. I am never tempted at all. I almost hate them during this period . . . about mid-summer, GS cookies start looking good to me.

One day at a time . . .

Our girls got some great news this week at our meeting. The goal we set as a troop for Cookie Sales was 7000 boxes. After our booth sales last weekend, the girls not only hit their 7000 box goal, they have surpassed it by almost 500 boxes with 3 weekends left to go. They were so excited that they decided to raise their goal to 10000. They have worked really hard this year and are running through the ideas of what they want to do with the money we have earned.

The Troop Leaders love it because when we told our Council that we set a 7000 box goal, they didn't think we could do it. Not only have we passed it, but we're off to demolish that goal! :) Let's just say there are some very jealous Troop Leaders in our Service Unit. We have 27 girls selling cookies this year - there are troops in our area with more girls and lower sales.

Ours aren't in yet but I know it will be an issue. Of course, DH decreed that we weren't buying any ourselves and I didn't buy any from my secret source, but I know there's atleast a box of thin mints in my future!!! What I do though, is freeze them which works with the "out of sight, out of mind" thing.

Since it is cookie time. Is it hard to resist cookies and keeping up with your goals?
