The Fall Product Sale is a council-sponsored program that combines
educational activities with money earning opportunities for the
troops. The Fall Sale is directed toward family and friends- those
closest to Girl Scouting and enables troops to earn start up money by
selling magazine subscriptions as well as nuts and candy.
Thank you for your support of the girls, troops and the council by
purchasing or participating in the Fall Product Sale!
Product Sale Programing
Focuses on leadership, collaboration and exploring personal values
through discovering, connecting and taking action to help girls
explore their future potential

GOAL SETTING ACTIVITIES
Setting goals is the key to a successful sale Troops and girls who
set goals earn big. Talk about what your plans are for the fall and
what the funding would be needed to make it happen. Give your girls
the opportunity to fully experience Product Sale Programming and don’t
skip the Goal Setting and Decision Making skill building! Fall
Product isn’t as simple as saying “sell 350 boxes of cookies” since
the product line is varied. But by leveraging all product options, the
girls can discover, connect and take action to meet their troop’s
For example a Troop with 10 girls
- If each girl sells…
- 3 Magazine orders
- 20 nut
- Troop earns $266!
Join the 100 club by selling combined items from Ashdon Farms and M 2 Media!
The Fall Product Sale Program is managed in the Nut-e web based
system by Troop, Service Unit and Association volunteers. It is also
the system used by council to order product as well as rewards. The
Service Unit Fall Product Chair will be sure the troop is provided
login information. Registered girls names will be uploaded prior to
the sale start date though newly registered girls can be easily added
as they join your troop. Use the links below for the Troop Nut-e User
manual (which is also accessible from within the system); the web link
address for Nut-e as well as specifics on troop deposit procedures.
Ashdon Farms offers sixteen delicious nut and candy selections
- These items will be sold in a three tiered pricing structure
of $6.00, $7.00, $8.00 and $9.00. The product is of extremely high
quality and will have 2 items offered in decorative collectors
M 2 Media Offers a Wide Variety of Products
- It’s not just magazines! Magazine and books make for an easy
sell. With the M2 Media program, those same magazine sales can
benefit GSCNC with 45% of the purchase price from every sale going
directly to council, not the publishers.
How it Works
All Fall Sale options in one envelope and there are two ways for
troops to earn proceeds
Taking orders for magazines
- Customers can order online or via paper forms
Nut and candy items
- Girls take orders via a nut order card
Online Nut and Candy Store-When the girls send emails for
magazines they can select to add the link for nuts and candy.
Customers can purchase online and have the items directly shipped to
them. (customers will have 25 items to choose from)
Customers Pay Up Front
- Collect all money when orders are placed
- Once product
is delivered, you are done
MAGAZINE/NUT Online Program
Girls can invite family and friends to support GSCNC through online
sales and it takes less than 15 minutes to get started! Girls
complete the interactive learning activity and enter email addresses
to allow friends and family to shop online for magazines, nut and candy.
When a girl sets up her online email program, she can offer nut and
candy items to their family and friends that will be receiving emails.
She can select all of her email contacts to receive the offer to order
nuts and candy or just a few.
Magazines are paid for online with a credit card and will arrive to
the customer sooner than orders placed on the paper order forms.
Nuts and candy are paid by credit card and shipped directly to the
customer. Customers will incur a shipping fee.

to be awarded for individual girl achievement. The troop earns:

Reward Items, as a team proceeds instead of reward items but
remember, it’s a GIRL decision and MAJORITY rules!

all sales but no rewards (Patches will be Awarded)
and candy items and online orders

The troops have the opportunity to earn an additional 2% regardless
if they are taking rewards or not. Troops must have an average of $150
per girl selling to earn the tiered- proceeds incentive.
