Get Started!

Fall Product Sale = Flexibility

The Fall Product Sale is made up of four individual parts, giving troops and families four ways to participate:

  • Online Magazine Sales:
    Girls click Magazine/Chocolates Online Program button to send emails to friends and family so they can order magazines online. No money is collected by the girl and delivery comes straight from the magazine distributor.
  • Paper Order Form Magazine Sales:          
    Girls visit potential customers so they can browse the magazine catalog. Customers fill out an order form and pay the girl for their order. Customers should keep  the pink copy for their records. Girls turn in the yellow and white copies to their troop leader along with all money.
  • Nut & Candy Sales:
    Girls visit potential customers or email through the online portal at Magazine/Chocolates Online Program, to collect orders for nuts and candy products. Be sure to tell customers that nuts and candy make great holiday gifts.
  • Address Booklets: 
    Girls can fill out postcards in the address booklet and turn in to troop leader for $2.50 in troop proceeds. Note: 1 booklet per girl.

5 Skills for Girls
1. Goal Setting
Girls set sales 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 product, how to market their sale and what to do with their earnings. This matters because girls must make many decisions, big and small, in their lives. Learning this skill helps them make good ones.

3. Money Management

Girls develop a budget, take 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 responsibly during every step of the product sale. This matters because employers want to hire ethical employees—and the world needs ethical leaders in every field.

Project Thank You – Military Program

Project Thank You allows Girl Scouts to collect donations in $6 increment to be donated to our local military troops. Girls will collect donations directly from the customer and turn in with all of their orders at the end of the sale. Girl Scouts–Dakota Horizons will distribute the product to local military bases throughout North Dakota and South Dakota. Girl Scouts earn the share patch when they collect 5 or more Project Thank You donations.
