It's one of the most exciting times of the year in Texas. That time when tables begin getting setup in front of your favorite stores, and these little boxes of goodness get dropped out for you. It's something you can't resist...and they know it.

Most of the time, we don't even realize it's that time of year, but the second we see it, we start making trips to the store specifically for those little round discs of goodness. Yes, I'm talking about when those Girl Scout cookies go on sale.

I remember my mom just buying boxes and boxes of them when I was a kid. I want to say they were only around $2-3 back then, and $20 made you feel like you were almost robbing the table. Thin Mints were always her favorite. She'd get them home and immediately throw them in the freezer. No, it wasn't to keep them fresh, they seemed to taste better that way.

Over the years, we've seen the price of those boxes go up. Instead of going home with 8-10 boxes for $20, we've been going home with four boxes for $20. I know, inflation has something to do with it, but it still hurts the soul a bit.

Well I've got bad news for 2024 if you haven't bought that first box of cookies yet. They've gone up in price...again, for what feels like the third year in a row. In order to enjoy those cookies, you'll have to shell out $6 per box now, meaning that $20 burning a hole in your wallet now only gets you THREE boxes of tastiness...and $2 in change.

It seems there's a hack though. I saw someone mention if you order online with a link provided from someone who is a Girl Scout, you can still get those boxes for only $5 a piece. Music to my ears. However, there's a catch even to that. Shipping charges will be added to your order.

So if you want to try and get a little more bang for your buck, grab that link from someone and order away. Just make sure you order enough to save you some coin and offset those shipping charges.
