Are you excited? Your daughter just sold a ton of Girl Scout cookies. The problem? Now you have to deliver them. Oops? Thankfully, this isn’t my first rodeo. I learned long ago how to help my daughter organize her cookie sales, and this free Girl Scout cookies thank you printable we put on every delivery makes things easy.

Cookies ready to deliver

I love that this Girl Scout cookies thank you printable serves multiple purposes. Not only does it thank the customer for the order, the small note tracks what each person ordered and whether they paid in advance or not – important to ensure we get all cookies delivered to the right person.

The note also encourages customers to contact my daughter to order more cookies when they run out. Every year, we hear from people “Oh, I didn’t know I could have gotten more!”

Our troop always orders extra cookies for booth sales and for girls whose customers ask for extra cookies after the door to door sales period ends. It’s a win all around!

Bonus? If you’re a cookie mom, I have ideas on how to easily organize your troop’s cookie order from the moment you head to pick up all those cases until the last girl picks up her order. Check out these Girl Scout cookie organization tips here.

And if you can’t wait for your cookies, make your own copycat Girl Scout s’mores cookies with this delicious and simple recipe. They disappeared fast in our house!

For the Girls: How To Use Your Girl Scout Cookies Thank You Printable (Updated for 2019)

Girl Scout Cookie Thank you Printable and oraganization tips

The same philosophy for I use to organize Girl Scout cookies for the whole troop applies to individual girls, as well. The main difference: I ask my daughter to do her part since this is her business experience, not mine.

Yes, I start out by printing out my free Girl Scout cookies thank you printable. However, she fills it out with the order information for each girl. Use this printable for Little Brownie Bakers cookie councils, while this printable works for ABC Bakers cookie councils.

I updated this Girl Scout cookies thank you printable for 2019 cookies. It reflects what each council sells this year and doesn’t include a price per box because so many councils sell at so many different prices. Our council went up to $5 last year, and more continue to.

I ensure there is a thank you. Plus, this includes a reminder that if customers “need” more cookies, my daughter can supply them.

As she fills it out, my daughter also notes on the sheet whether the customer has paid or not, which saves time when we deliver. While payment is not required until the cookies are delivered, some customers like to pay ahead of time.

Organizing your daughter’s cookie sales

The only other material we need aside from the printable is rubber bands and tape. I’ve found using rubber bands to keep customer orders together is the easiest method.

I save them up all year, but I still usually have to buy more. I have Little Miss pick the boxes for each order and immediately tape the thank you/order confirmation printable to a box. Then she rubber bands the boxes together.

For those customers who order more than we can fit in even a large rubber band, we place in an empty cookie box. The Girl Scout cookies thank you printable gets taped to the box – easy peasy!

From there, it’s a matter of separating the orders by delivery location. Our chiropractor (where all the employees tend to generously support her every year) goes into one pile.

Cookies sold door to door in our neighborhood go in another. Orders from relatives are another pile. This strategy continues to ensure that we don’t forget any orders when we do our deliveries. This makes deliveries go faster and ensures customers receive cookies in a timely manner.

Maximizing delivery of her cookies

When Little Miss does her deliveries, she hands her customers the orders and ensures she thanks them. She also immediately gives a verbal reminder that if they need more cookies, she is their solution.

And in the neighborhood, a wagon to carry all the orders plus some “extra” cookies for impulse purchases makes it quick and easy. I bought this foldable wagon last year for lacrosse tournaments, but it works perfectly for holding cookies, too!

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience and hacks on getting organized. This is my first year as a troop leader and sometimes organization can be daunting especially during the cookie season.

    Thank you so much for sharing the printables and tips.
    This is my daughter’s second year selling cookies but only her first in a troop that does presale orders. She’s set her goal at 1000 cookies. I started worrying how I’d keep everything organized once she passed 200 in presales. This will make things much easier. I appreciate you helping out all of us newbies.

      I’m so glad you find them helpful. Wow that’s a ton of orders for your daughter – good luck to her with her goal, and YES definitely get and stay organized with the cookies. I hope this helps. I also create a spreadsheet of every order to verify that my counting math matches up with spreadsheet math if that helps – and it lets me keep track for future years to know who bought what, too. Have fun!
