I Caved

...to the desire for Girl Scout cookies.

My daughter's friend is a girl scout and she asked if we wanted cookies. Really, who doesn't love a GS cookie? Why do they hve to have so many flavors we like? I bought 5 boxes! At $3.50 each. The math on that is $17.50 for cookies. Eek.

They come around once a year. It's for a good cause. The cookies will taste fabulous. I'll likely eat less since I'm on diet. Oh my I'm on a diet with GS cookies in the house!!

In good financial news, I earned enough Swagbucks to redeem another $5 Amazon.com gift card. I'm up to $25 now! Did I mention how it is a bit addictive? Would you agree?

    Going to Swagbucks now.
    Hoping the demist of DD's Girl Scout troop will mean a thinner me.

    Yes, they are both quite addicting. However, if any of the kids here ask me to buy, I will have to say no. With potentially 100+ girls in girl scouts, and my seeing them all once a week ... who'd I choose to buy from?!

    I used to buy the peanut butter sandwich cookies from the GS every year. I'd buy a whole case (and they'd actually last for a half year). A couple years ago, though, shortly after DS was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, I read the ingredients list on those cookies and it totally freaked me out. Haven't bought them since. I remember thinking no wonder they are so addictive with what they have in them. Now I'll just ask if I can make a donation instead. But I do miss those peanut butter cookies!

    Sorry this is so late, but I'm on the Girl Scout cookie 12 step program. Big Grin A couple of rules that helped me.

    1. Do not pre-order.
    2. Buy only on the last day of the drive (end of the month).
    3. Buy only from the Girl Scout herself.
    4. Buy one box of whatever is your favorite at that time.

    Buying on the last day from a stand at, say, the grocery store is my favorite strategy. You can't be tempted to come back for more, and many of the truly deadly flavors are sold out. And I buy from the girl scout herself - I'm one foot in the fundraising biz and just better if the GS herself is selling rather than her parent. Smile
