Nuts. We don't sell big. We actually only do it because we must participate in both sales to do a fundraiser of our own.
Well that's a bummer!
We sell nuts, actually don't do to bad on them. Make a few hundred bucks...I have a lot of repeat customers who know it is almost time.They are hitting me up already. Keep telling them.. be patient your Cajun crunch will be here soon..lol
We do fall product (nuts, raisins, etc) and based on how much we sell in the fall, we can get a bonus on the Cookie sale.
Our Girl Scout Fall product sale is magazines, nuts & chocolate in October.
Our GS council sells nuts and magazines. Some girls sell lots, others sell bare minimum to get a patch, others sell none. There's also a Step 2 Booklet that the families fill out with names and addresses of people for the magazine company to send an order form to...the troop gets $3 per completely filled out booklet whether or not any magazines are sold through that particular booklet. We ask every girl to do that part. It's tough though because the school is doing a magazine sale at the same time. Cookies go better here and they start Jan 12th this year (it was Jan 6th last year).
We used the money to buy badges, some craft supplies, and for our first overnight-a mom and daughter one since they were so young.
My Girl Scout troop will be selling cookies in November. My son is in Boy Scouts and he will be selling wreaths and popcorn (two different fundraisers) during the fall.
The school usually has a fundraiser also. We typically opt out of that one because we have so many others to do. We don't sell a lot... but we do our best!
I'm actually curious to see the school fundraiser this year though. I don't have the details, but they mentioned something about a gift basket raffle. Each class will have a basket to raffle off. I assume the parents will donate items for the baskets, I'm not sure yet. Sounds intriguing though.
