Dear Anne, I’m a working mom with two kids and not a shopper by nature. What are your go-to kid sites where I can find cool things?—Margot S.

Dear Margot, Keeping up with kid supplies is a full time job. Timing is key. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve sent my kids off to school with a coat that is too small or boots that barely fit—only to then panic order a bunch of things that don’t really work. Thank goodness for the evolution of subscription-based services. They are like a magic wand for alleviating my guilt complex! Here are three that aim to help moms and dads save time—and feel good about their purchases.

  • Kiwi Crate

    A master weapon in the the war against kid boredom. You get super fun science and art projects are delivered to you every month in a fun-to-unpack crate. (They cover every age group too—from 24 months to teenagers.) Online video tutorials help bring each project to life, which is especially helpful on the days when I’m feeling super listless myself!
