Life Skills Developed through our Girl Scout Product Sale Programs
By selling Girl Scout products to friends and family, girls develop valuable life skills such as: goal setting, money management, people skills, business ethics and decision making – all while having fun!
The Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England sponsors two product sales each year. All Girl Scouts – from Daisies to Ambassadors – can participate. Both the Fall QSP/Be A Reader Magazine, Candy & Nut Sale and the Girl Scout Cookie Sale offer amazing opportunities for all those involved, learning the five life skills is just part of the journey!
(Please note, only troops that have participated in both product sales can do any additional fundraising.)

This year's theme is "Be Brilliant, Shine On!"
This sale of magazine subscriptions and renewals and high quality nuts and candies is held each September/October. The nuts and candy arrive just in time for Thanksgiving and make great holiday gifts, hostess gifts and teacher “thank you” gifts. By holding a product sale early in the troop year, troops can raise the funds they need for community service projects or field trips.
Additional Information & 2016 Forms for the Product Sale
Each year, Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England take orders from friends and family for delicious nuts, candy and magazine subscriptions as part of the Fall Product Program.

All Girl Scouts from Daisies through Ambassadors can participate in the sale.
QSP has 700+ magazine titles which are available for new subscriptions or renewals. They also offer over 200 digital titles. New this year - magazine gift cards that can be purchased for gift giving and the GL (Girls Life) Gift Club, which includes 6 great books for girls.
