Inventory Management

Please try to get cookies from a local troop before going to the cookie cupboard. We want to help troops since every returned case means $15 loss to your troop.

Start by checking the Edina Cookie SWAP doc or going to the cookie wiki. See Training materials for more details on cookie wiki.  We have great success moving cookies there.
