Fall means Fall Product around here! As a parent, I know the thought of selling one more thing (cookie dough, anyone?) on behalf of your child might make you cringe. However, our daughter has sold Fall Product for the last five years, and it is the easiest of all the sales in which she participates. I promise!
Not only is Fall Product super easy, it can be handled completely online. You simply have your daughter type up an email (or you can have her dictate it to you if she's too little), pop a cute Girl Scout picture of her onto the page, and email this out to your friends and family. They have the choice of buying either nuts/candy or magazines.
At our house, we buy the candy to use for teacher gifts, or holiday tokens. My husband's relatives eagerly await the Deluxe Pecan Clusters and Fruit Slices each year. We also love magazines, as do our friends and relatives who live out of state, so our daughter always sells plenty of those. It literally takes less than an hour of her time or mine and she does it all ONLINE.
If your daughter or troop hasn't sold Fall Product in the past, please consider doing so. It's quick and easy, and the products and girl prizes are great. It's the perfect way for the troop to make some start-up money for the year. Be sure to try the new Honey Roasted Mixed Nuts (my family's new favorite!) and the Black Forest Trail Mix. Both are delicious. The Dark Chocolate Caramel Caps with Sea Salt are tasty, too.
Happy selling, everyone!
