I know we're all trying to watch what we eat, but don't feel guilty about treating yourself to a box of cookies, because your purchase supports a good cause. Each package of Girl Scout Cookies costs four dollars (except the gluten-free Trios, which cost five dollars a package) and more than 70 percent stays with the Girl Scout and her troop. According to the Girl Scouts that money is used to fund programs that build courage, confidence, and character.That sounds like a really good cause so maybe treat yourself to two or three boxes.

Listen to James Rabe in the mornings from 6a to 10a on Y105 FM.

Girls Scouts will start selling Girl Scout Cookies on Saturday, February 3rd at hundreds of locations around southeast Minnesota. Want to locate the closest cookie booth? There's an app for that! Download the Girl Scout Cookie Locator on your iPhone or Android and it will help you get to nearest box of thin-mints in the shortest amount of time! You can also find a map at GirlScoutsRV.org.
