     1/8 teaspoon of salt                                                                                You will still have a dip in the top of cupcake, but no worries. Use a spoon to

     4 cups of powdered sugar                                                                            Next, place unwrapped red and gold hard candies in a freezer plastic bag.
     1 cup of softened butter                                                                            Crush candies with hammer into chunks. Spread crushed candies in a thin

                                                                    for their Girl Scout activities while
                                                                     learning 5 skills that will help them in

1   Goal Setting
    Girls set Cookie Sale Program goals and, with their team, create a plan to reach them. This matters
    because Girls need to know how to set and reach goals to succeed in school, on the job, and in life.

2   Decision Making
    Girls decide where and when to sell cookies, how to market their cookies, and what to do with
    their proceeds. This matters because Girls must make many decisions, big and small, in their lives.

3   Money Management
    Girls develop a budget, take cookie orders, and handle customers’ money. This matters because
    Girls need to know how to handle money – from their lunch money to their allowance to
    (someday) their paycheck.

4   People Skills
    Girls learn how to talk (and listen!) to their customers, as well as learning how to work as a team
    with other Girls. This matters because it helps them do better in school (on group projects, on
    sports teams, and on the playground) and later at work.

5   Business Ethics
    Girls act honestly and responsibility during every step of the Cookie Sale Program. This matters
    because employers want to hire ethical employees-and the world needs ethical leaders in every field.

                                                                                                    Why do these skills matter?

Goal Getter Phase

         This is the second part of the Cookie Sale Program running from January 20-February 16.
        It’s the time between when Girls turn in their Pre-Sale orders and when they receive
       their cookies. Keep the momentum going by utilizing these suggestions!

When the Girls turn in their Cookie Order Cards with
their Pre-Sale orders to you, hand them the Goal
Getter Order Card (found online, eBudde and GSESC
website). Collect the Goal Getter Order Cards and
pick up additional Cookies from these sales at Cookie
Cupboards/Warehouses starting February 18 or use
Cookies from your Initial Booth order to fill the Goal
Getter orders. Girls can contact customers that they
missed in January and new customers anytime. They
can also continue to send emails through Digital
Cookie!
Encourage your Girls to continue reaching their goals
by setting Goal Getter goals using the Goal Getter
patch or any of the other great items for sale. See
pages 16-18 for more information.
Keep your eyes out for communications regarding a
Goal Getter incentive from GSESC, these will not be
on the Girl Order Card.

Ways to Increase Sales During
the Goal Getter Phase
 • Use a door hanger to maximize
   potential orders when going door-to-
   door.
 • Cookie recipe cards are great promotional
   materials. Found on www.littlebrownie.com.
 • Use social media to spread the word “It’s
   Cookie Season” with friends and family.
 • Use e-cards from littlebrownie.com
 • Contact local businesses for sales and
   suggest they buy by the case.
Cookies sold by Girls during the Goal Getter
phase are allocated to Girls using the “Cookie
Other” and “Spec Other” columns in eBudde.

Cookie Pick Up by Caregivers and Girls

Follow these easy steps to ensure a successful
Cookie delivery to your Caregivers and Girls!
 • Notify Caregivers of the date, time, and location they can pick
   up their order. Give yourself enough time to get home from
   delivery, unload the Cookies, and separate the orders.
 • Sort all Cookies and orders before you let any Caregivers
   pick up their Cookies. This will help you identify a problem
   with orders before anyone picks up.
 • Prepare Cookie receipts for each Girl. When Caregivers pick
   up, have them count and verify their order. Complete a
   receipt for every Cookie transaction.
 • Remember Caregiver’s are responsible for all Cookies
   they sign for. Write a receipt each and every time Cookies
   or money exchange hands. Keep receipts in a safe
   place with the signed 2019 Cookie Sale Permission and
   Responsibility Forms.
 • If you have a Girl with multiple Caregivers, be sure that
   they pick up their separate orders.
 • At this time, you can collect the Girl’s Goal Getter order
   cards. You can give them their Goal Getter Cookie
   orders from Cookie Booth Cookies you ordered or you
   can place a Cookie Cupboard/Warehouse order for
   pick up beginning February 18.

Cookie Receipts
Provide a receipt each time Cookies exchange hands
to keep a record of who is financially responsible for
those Cookies. Protect yourself, protect your Troop,
and protect your Girl Scouts.
 • Date the receipt and include the Troop number
   and Girl’s name
 • You and the Caregiver should sign the receipt.
   Keep one copy and give the other copy to the
   Caregiver.

Customer Cookie Delivery Checklist
As the Girls pick up their Cookies to deliver to
customers, please remember to cover the following:
 • It’s important to deliver the Cookies to the
   customers as soon as possible. Cookie Booth
   Sales begin February 22, and if customers see
   that other people have their Cookies before
   they do, they will be upset.
 • When Girls deliver their Cookies, they should
   ask the customer if they would like to order
   additional packages as the ones they ordered
   are likely to be gone within a short time and
   Girl Scout Cookies can be frozen.
