A Houston Mom’s Guide to March 2018

Hello March!  This month is going to be one like no other in the Bayou City :: Rodeo, Spring Break, Easter, and so much more! There is LOTS to do as a family this month so pull out your planner and add some of these to the calendar!

We are so excited this month to introduce our newest partner, Callbox Storage!  Now that spring is upon us, there is no better time for a little de-clutter spring cleaning!  Callbox Storage is a better alternative to self-storage. Whether you need space to empty out your garage or extra storage for your business, they have a solution for you. It’s simple and just a click away. And can we talk about how easy they make it for you?!? 3 easy steps designed for the busy mom on the go ::

1) They pick it up for FREE and load it for you so you don’t have to haul it yourself to the storage facility.

2) Then Callbox digitally itemizes all of your items with their state of the art photo inventory system when they store it in their climate-controlled facility.

3) They bring the items back to you as you need them. Just looking to bring back a handful of things? Simply scroll through your online account and choose your belongings by that handy dandy inventory system. Boom. They are back on your doorstep. Say what??

I personally would have LOVED to know about this service when I needed all of the baby gear that takes so much space OUT of my house…since I wasn’t quite ready to part with it!  Callbox Storage is perfect for families, businesses, and life’s transitions! Check out their website for creative storage solutions

Annndddd now onto all of the amazing events happening in and around our area this month. I am SO ready to usher in March. What are you most looking forward to this month?
