If you recently bought or sold a home, you likely need to move quickly to pack up your family's belongings. In fact, you may have only a limited amount of time to get your child's toys packed up and ready to go to your new address.

Ultimately, packing a child's toys can be quick and simple – here are three essential packing tips for toys that every parent needs to know.

1. Make a List of Your Child's Toy Inventory

If your child has a wide selection of big and small toys, you may want to make a list of toys that need to be packed up prior to moving day. That way, you can ensure that all of your child's toys will make it from Point A to Point B.

As you create your list, think about the toys that your child uses frequently. If possible, you'll want to avoid packing these toys until the last possible moment.

On the other hand, you can immediately start packing toys that your child rarely uses. Pack up as many toys as you can, and you may be able to minimize stress as moving day draws closer.

2. Involve Your Child in the Packing Process

Packing can be a stressful process for kids and parents alike. Fortunately, you can involve your child in the packing process to help your son or daughter prep for moving day.

In many instances, children can pack up toys on their own. Kids may require supervision while they pack, but with the help of their parents, these children can get their toys ready for an upcoming move.

With the right approach, packing can be a fun bonding activity for parents and kids. Together, parents and children can pack up toys and other items and ensure all of a family's belongings can safely be transported from one destination to the next.

3. Pack and Label Your Moving Boxes

Parents will want to guarantee that no toys are broken or damaged during a move. As such, it is essential to use bubble wrap, packing paper and other packing supplies to ensure all of a child's toys remain intact.

Furthermore, parents will want to make it easy for kids to find their toys as soon as a family reaches its new address. If you use bright markers to label moving boxes that contain a child's toys, your son or daughter can instantly unpack his or her toys and start getting settled into a new home.

If you need extra help getting ready for a move, you may want to consult with a real estate agent as well. In addition to helping you buy or sell a house, a real estate agent can put you in touch with the best moving companies in your area.

Don't leave anything to chance as you prepare to move to a new location – use the aforementioned tips, and you should have no trouble packing up your child's toys.


Baking soda is something that most of us have in our homes. We use it for cooking, but have you ever thought that you can use it for cleaning as well? Baking soda is actually a fantastic thing to clean with. It deodorizes and is non-toxic, so it’s safe for kids, pregnant women, and pets. Below, you’ll find some of the household chores that you can complete using baking soda.


Scrub Down The oven


Since ovens can become really dirty, really fast, you need something that can take on the grease. Baking soda is great for this purpose. Make a paste using baking soda and water or vinegar. Let the paste sit in the oven for up to 24 hours. Then wipe the mixture down with a sponge or cloth. You can heat the oven after you do this initial cleaning to help you loosen any additional grease, grime, or food particles. Let the oven cool and wipe it down again. 


Keep Drains Clear


If you notice that your drains are a bit slow, you may want to avoid harsh chemicals and start with the baking soda right in your kitchen. Pour some baking soda into your drain. Then, run some warmed vinegar down the drain immediately afterwards. After you let that mixture go to work for about 10 minutes, you should flush the drain with boiling water. This won’t work on already clogged drains, but it’s great for maintenance on your drains that may be a bit slow. 


Keep Your Fridge Fresh


Your fridge can become a breeding ground for germs, crumbs, and spills. All you need to clean the  refrigerator up is a simple solution made up of baking soda and dish soap. The soap will help to cut any grease that has built up in the appliance, and the baking soda acts as an abrasive to get the gunk up. Just create a paste and apply it in the refrigerator. Then wipe down the shelves with warm water and a sponge. You can even disinfect your sponge in the microwave after you do this. Just place the sponge in the microwave for 2 minutes and you have a sponge that’s like new! 


Freshen Your Washing Machine


Baking soda helps to deodorize things. To deodorize your washer, just pour half a cup of baking soda into the detergent dispenser of the washing machine. Run a cycle through with hot water. Your clothes will be cleaner than they have been in months! Make sure you do this to your washer about once per month to keep it smelling fresh and deter those funky odors from building up in your laundry room. The only thing that should be smelling funky in there are dirty socks!
