If you’re family is like mine, you’ve got some real basketball fans in the house.  Instead of just watching games on TV during basketball season, I try to get my kids and neighbors in on the action with neighborhood basketball tournaments. Whether you’re playing “H-O-R-S-E” or a simple game of one-on-one, there’s just something about a basketball goal that demands for friends to get together and have some fun. You could play family vs family, girls vs boys, or even adults vs kids (just be careful—if the kids win, they will never let you live it down!).

Wheelbarrows make any yard and garden project easier
Anyone whos done their share of yard work or gardening knows that short of a good, sharp shovel, nothing beats a good, strong wheel barrow.

Lifetimes plastic sheds come with two peg strips, which I installed on the shed walls. (If I recall, I think thats where the instruction photos show to install them, as well.) However, to maximize storage space, did you know you can also install the peg strips on the shed doors! Handy, huh? Are your peg strips already full? No problem!
