Girl Scout cookies are the closest thing we’ll ever have to an eighth wonder of the world. For much of their existence, the iconic cookies have been a lucrative entity that, like Santa Claus, only appear once a year. Now, we live in an age where even Girl Scout cookies are (mostly) accessible to all. Let’s face it, everyone knows someone who knows a Girl Scout. But, if your Girl Scout connection is far away, don’t fret you can buy cookies online. Exciting news, right? Well we’ve got you covered because we’re going to share with you how to get your hands on those Thin Mints (or whatever your favorite cookie is).

Essentially it’s as easy as any other online transaction. You just have to get in touch with your favorite Girl Scout so she can send you her personalized link and you can get shopping! While it may seem like a hassle to actually reach out to someone for their link, the Girl Scouts like to keep track of who is selling what so the money can directly impact the seller. So actually, you’re making a ~direct~ impact with your purchase, which is pretty cool.

But what if you don’t know any Girl Scouts? In the unlikely chance that nobody you know is connected to a Girl Scout, you can still go out and find yourself some Girl Scout cookies. On the Girl Scout website, there’s a place for someone input their address and contact their local Girl Scout office to see if any Girl Scout cookie booths will be popping up.

Happy shopping and maybe order a box (or 5) for us!
