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.

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 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.

I have girl scouts in 1st grade (Brownies). We will be selling Nut and Chocolate products. Last year I heard it and thought of those cheap ones the schools sell in the same catalog as the wrapping paper and various gifts, so I was upset. But the products are really good and good quality. People love it. We will be using these sales to cover troop meeting costs. I asked parents for a start up dues of $10 and then I said we would pay dues again in December and in March. At the start of nut sales I will tell them if they sell to the troop goal they won't have to pay dues again for the year. Most will like that! We will use our spring cookie sales for the big trip to the zoo overnight.
