Momfinds.com saves your sanity as well as your money. It offers “online ‘window shopping’” for everything from backpacks to classroom fashion, then redirects parents and kids to sites that sell the items.
Zwaggle.com lets families exchange last year’s wardrobes, since children “grow out of new clothes before you get the tags off.” Trades use a point system based on how much of your own clothing you pass along.
Restockit.com helps replace all those lost pens, pencils, and other school supplies. Either order a bunch to stay stocked for the whole year, or “get together with other parents and buy supplies in bulk” to save money and get free shipping.
Sortfloorbooks.com helps kids “find books from Scholastic Press and other classroom publishers at bargain prices.” Enter the code “Summer09” and get 10 percent off.
