It is Girl Scout cookie season! Congratulations Girl Scouts, but your cookies are overpriced! Seriously $5-$6 dollars for 14 cookies. Whatever! I will buy almost anything from someone under the age of 18, but I cannot wrap my head around .40 per cookie. I would rather donate the $12 in cost of two boxes of cookies straight to your Girl Scout camp fund. I do appreciate you asking me to buy the cookies, even if I say no. We all know I am a cheapskate, and I want to help you get your Budget Badge, Girl Scout.
In fact Girl Scout, offer to Swiffer my hardwood floors and I’ll pay you $10. I’ll pay $20 for you to help me clean my carpets. I don’t even want to admit what I would pay some Girl Scout to clean my baseboards. Basically, Girl Scout camp would be paid for in one afternoon. I will pay double for a service. As delicious as those Girl Scout cookies are, I would prefer help around the house. Am I right people?
So with the help of my SHMM’s daughter and a lazy Sunday, I made the amazing, always tasty Tag-a-Longs, and enough Samoas to kill a horse.
So, for $6, we made 100 cookies. This would have cost me between $36-$40. No thanks.
