Welcome

This is Cookie Cupboard 9

A  well sugared,  cookie selling machine

     The  girls and their volunteers  of Communities:  235,  241,   246,   253,   parts of   240 and 244 .     

The cupboard  is located at the  McLures Moving and Storage,     167 Colchester Road (2A) in Essex.  

The warehouse is just a little south  on  2A  of  where 289-the circ meets Susie Willson Rd.  

 Storage Unit  # 

Come through the gates and turn to the right  - then it's on the right side.

THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU PICKED UP YOUR INITIAL ORDER

The Gate!   If you are picking up after 4:15 (the gate closes at 4:30) you will have to call/text me when you arrive at the gate - or honk if you forgot your phone, so I can come open it...


For pickup schedule times,  please scroll down the page or click  Notes and/or Schedule  on the green bar.

If you plan to have a booth at a location outside of your community's area, PLEASE  check in with the community cookie manager of the area you want to have your booth.   We don't want two troops to show up in the same spot or too close together.

When you have returns,  if you can let me know roughly what you will be bringing back ahead of time, I can enter it into the Budde and print the receipt before I go to the cupboard.  

Status

7/25 - Just Resting.... enjoying the summer  and having my daughter home for a few weeks.

5/24 - Arrangements are being made for the 450 cases of donated and left over cookies  to go to the National Guard, which should be in a couple weeks.   Thanks to Vicky, troop 30145 for arranging this and to Keith for the delivery.

6/1 - A huge thanks to troops returning booth data.   I've forwarded it to Kathie, so she and Crystal can start picking  through it for ordering purposes for next year, etc.   If you would like to have the info now, let me know and I'll email it to you.  I'll post a link here in the Fall or when we get closer to booth time next year.

THANK YOU to all the Adult Volunteers and Parents who have  helped the girls sell cookies !

A Big Thanks to Keith and his crew at the warehouse for all the assistance he volunteers to us during cookie time.   Passing out the initial order to those communities who pick up here in Essex and providing our cupbord space.  

We sold 42,240 boxes  at booths last year - that was amazing !                                                                           

This year 55,020   packages went out of the cupboard.   I'm hoping your supplies are pretty much  gone by now.   What a sale you all did !   Please share this with your girls so they can see how well they did this year.

Rutland - 19,644

Barrie - 14,100

Barton (Newport area)  - 4,380

Camp Farnsworth - forgot to ask what that one was...

Please Order For The Next Booth by Monday Night  

As soon as you have planned your Booth times,  place your order into eBudde and enter the pickup date to be a couple days before your booth date.  Order early but don't pickup too early.    Don't forget to make sure your booth date is entered on Cookie Locator,  so customers can find you.

Troop Number Notes

I'll try to match the pick up time you entered into eBudde as close as possible to when I'm at the cupboard,   and in the order that the request was placed in eBudde - sometimes there are several people requesting the same pick up time.       

PULLED Orders -   

 Means your order has been assembled in a pile and waiting for the pickup time.





Independant Girls  Orders:


Using the Cupboard

Please keep these things in mind when placing a cupboard order:

Always Check The Calendar Schedule below, for cupboard times before coming to the warehouse.

  • I will post notes for your troop number letting you know when your order is ready to be picked up - which would either be Wednesday or Friday if the order is placed by Monday .  Monday cupboard time is mostly for returns.  If I have enough supply, extras and small booth orders may be picked up then.


  • I will usually have cupboard hours on M W F after 12:00, during the day (because it is a storage warehouse and it's warmer after 12 ).   If you are totally unable to make it there during daylight, please let me know so we can make other arrangements.


  • Very important - Fill in your contact information on your cupboard order - Name, Phone Number, eMail address.


  • ORDERING : To ensure we have enough cookies for everyone's booth accross the council and yet not have cookies left at the end of the sale, Please place your orders for your booth as soon as you know the date of your booth or at least by the Monday before your scheduled booth so it can be picked up on Friday.  Kathie places our cupboard restock order on Tuesday according to the orders placed on Monday .  If  orders come in after this, it throws off the reorder schedule and I may not have enough supply for you.  This also gives me time to get them ready for you and find more if there is a shortage. This is one of the reasons for prompt returns, so they are back and can go out again for someone elses next booth.   As an occasional exception - Since we don't want any spontaneous booth sale opportunities to be passed up, please check with me for availability of cookies, if you have short notice of a possible booth sale.


  • RETURNS:  If you have cookies left from a booth sale and wish to return them,  you may bring back 25% of  what you checked out for that  booth (your last order,  not a total of all of them).  They should be back to the cupboard by Monday night.     If you can't make it to the cupboard Monday,  please let me know by Monday night what you will be bringing back by Wednesday so we can include them as available inventory that can go out in the Friday pick ups.   The better we control this, the less leftovers we have at the end.  If I am available  Sat. or Sun. or on Mon. morning before cupboard time, returns could be  brought to my house - email or call to arrange.    I encourage you to return unsold cases promptly, even if you plan to have more booth sales, especially if there will be a weekend between  planned booths.  This keeps inventory flowing so Kathie doesn't have to make as many reorders to the bakery and avoids having too many  left at the end of the sale.   I also don't want to see troops stuck with cases they can no  longer return if they are done selling.  Please do not hold them all until the end of cupboard time in April - contact me.  I know it's   inconvienent to make lots of trips to the cupboard,  but this is what we need to do to have  better control and availability of our cookie   inventory.       Returns (and small pickups) can always come to my house at odd times if your schedule doesn't match the cupboard schedule -  just check in with me.                  Remember,  you can take out mixed flavor cases but returns have to be full cases of each flavor.   Also, when you have returns,  if you can let me know roughly what you will be bringing back ahead of time, I can enter it into the Budde and print the receipt before I go to the cupboard.  


  • Troop to Troop Transfers:    This can be done if you want to trade cookie types with another troop or just transfer them to another trooop.  Why would you do this?   If you are out of some type at a booth and the cupboard is not open or the other troop is near by.  If you have kept your supply too long and they can't come back to the cupboard and you are done selling and the other troop isn't.   This transfer can be done in eBudde,  there is a spot for it.   No money is exchanged.   Each sales report is adjusted so the final sweep will take the correct amount.   


Internet connection at the warehouse:  The connection is pretty good  (in the parking lot...), so when I get a chance I am able to update this site while I'm there with any "emergency" cookie developments.    Like,  there was an attack by a  random herd of squirrals  and all the Thin Mints are gone....       Email, call OR text my cell to contact me.   802-363-5565 - If you can - A Text is better - just remember to include who you are,  because if I'm helping someone with cookies I might not answer and will have to get back to you.

 There is lots to look at on the eBudde site,     littlebrownie.com   and    vipetraining.littlebrownie.com

There are Sales suggestions as well as instructions about how to work eBudde if you need a refresher or are new.

All suggestions and comments about how to make the cupboard work better are welcome ...
