Mags & Munchies

(Formerly the Fall Product Sale Program)

When you sell 150+ units, you'll be invited to our Super Seller Event on December 4 at the Juliette Low Friendship Center. See All Rewards.

The Mags & Munchies Sale is one of the easiest and best ways for girls to start earning troop funds and helps leader's save on membership fees, program registrations, meeting supplies and more before the Girl Scout Cookie Program. 

Also provides guidance by helping girls develop the 5 Skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, & Business Ethics.
