According to Punxsutawney Phil, who we are told did not see his shadow on Groundhog Day, spring is just around the corner. Here in Houston, winter’s chill may be short lived but can serve as an excellent motivator to stay inside and declutter your home by donating, throwing out, or storing items you rarely use or need.

Obtaining a Houston self storage unit to preserve your valuable, but infrequently used goods can be the perfect way to open up more than just space in your home; you may feel so liberated after you’ve completed your organization that you’ll want to get out of the house to enjoy some of the many things to do in Houston in February, including:

  • Ice at Discovery Green – You still have a few more days to enjoy ice skating in Downtown Houston, as the model boat basin will remain frozen for use as a skating rink until February 7. With the largest ice skating surface in the southwest at 7716 square feet, a separate ice play area located right next to the main rink for toddlers to explore, and different themes occurring on particular evenings, your whole family will appreciate the fun!
