Project 365: Day 54 - February 23

Today we had our first cookie booth. We started out with 177 boxes and, over the course of the next 4 hours, sold 137 of them! We ran out of Thin Mints, Caramel DeLites (Samoas)and Peanut Butter Patties (Tag-a-longs) and had over a case of Shortbreads (Trefoils) leftover!

The first crew stayed from 9:30 until 11:30, battling the cold, while chugging hot chocolate and fighting over who could count the money! In general Girl Scouts get along much better than that, but for those who don't know us well, our first crew was made up of two sets of sisters!

The second crew (11:30 - 1:30) had the difficult job of explaining to customers that we were out of the favorites, but also had pleasure of telling them where the other booths were located!

So, now we have 40 boxes of cookies left, and another booth coming up in two weeks. How many more boxes should I commit these girls to selling?

Are you willing to pick up the slack?

Glad you're cookie sales are going well! My husband ordered quite a few, and I've been trying to eat them very carefully (I'm diabetic...I can have some sweets if I'm very careful about it.) They're such a treat!
