Here's what those tiny green salespersons aren't telling you: You might be able to buy those Girl Scout cookies cheaper elsewhere. Girl Scout cookies sell for different prices in different areas. The going price is either $3.50 or $4.00 depending on where you live. Local Girl Scout councils are actually allowed to set any price they want, so somewhere they could be charging more. Unless you are a total cookie monster and have been left really hurting by the economy, you should still buy local. The extra 50 cents you spend goes to programs. Girl power!
