Do you purchase a box from each scout you know? Or do you order all from the first one who gets to you?

When my Mom worked full time she bought a box from each coworker that had a slip for their daughter. 

Before Carly was a scout, I would buy several boxes from a friends daughter, then John would buy a box each from the two co-workers daughters, and I would get a box each from the 2 close friends of the friends daughter (as I was neighbor to one, and had the other at the day care). So in the end we would have about 15 boxes. 

Now that Carly is a scout, I ordered 6 boxes from her. Then I will order one from Sarah at Church, and we will see from there. I did find some people didn't ask me, because they knew I had a scout. 

We asked one lady at Church, who ordered all of her cookies from one person. Then complained as I was deliverying cookies that she hadn't seen her to get them.

I think I'm going to have to buy them this year.....my uncle works for a different company now and doesn't deliver the girl scout cookies to the southern states anymore. No more cases of free cookies. Haven't bought any in years.

I don't know any girl scouts!

I usually just get them from the girl scouts when they set up outside the supermarket.

Gosh Liz, I forgot about that. I get a box when I see a booth, especially if they are outside and the weather stinks..... lol

Well, they aren't actually outside the supermarket. They're in the vestibule so they're not facing the elements!

We have a couple of stores that won't let them inside, they are outside under the awnings. 
Carly's troop gets an indoor table at each of last two breakfasts.

I don't usually have anyone that asks but I think Corbin's friend is selling this year. If they are at the store and I have cash I usually buy more.

I order from my niece. This year both nieces are in it and I will split the order. DH usually is suckered in to buy more at work also.
