  • WOW! Our personal goal is 39 boxes. One girl has already sold over 300, but her mom is the cookie mom, and they're really outgoing. We haven't set a troop goal. We just like to do our best and take it from there.

  • That's what I'm afraid of. I was just wondering what other troops ask their girls to sell. Our troop set a goal of 170 boxes per girl. I couldn't get that many sales, and to tell you the truth it seems like a really high number for a kindergartner to sell. I wanted to know if that's a goal for every girl in GS.

  • My middle daughter is a Daisy. Their individual goal was 15 boxes each. We only got the order form last week because she missed the Christmas party back in December when they were passed out and her leader didn't think to drop it off to us. The money is due tomorrow (and we have to pay up front). I guess she isn't selling any this year. Actually, all the other years my girls have been in scouts me and my dad have bought 98% of the cookies they have sold. I don't like the idea of having them bothering neighbors and our family doesn't have the money and all live too far away to buy anything. They most we have ever sold was like 25 boxes the first year my oldest was a Brownie. That was her personal goal.

  • Each of my 8 girls has a goal of 200 boxes. I have about 3 girls (my daughter included) that usually sell around 400 each.

  • Our troop set a goal of 200 boxes sold by each girl. I don't think a single one of them reached it--the forms were turned in yesterday at the meeting, and the top seller (not my kid, lol!) had 176, I think. We have a lot of booth sales coming up too though, so that should help.
