It's time once again to celebrate our wonderous Earth. Though Earth Day began as a grass-roots movement 38 years ago to educate people about pollution, conservation and to draw the government's attention, it has changed over the years. Today, we all have concerns like climate change and diminishing resources fresh on our minds.It seems like everyone's making some small changes, or just being a little more aware. I've made a consious effort to buy more organic food, switching my light bulbs to compact florescents (CFLs), and turning off unused electronics. But I'd like to do more this Earth Day, so I've been searching for ideas. Here are some of the best one's I've found... a few of them utilize our Lifetime Products: 1- Plant a tree in your back yard: Besides being a fun activity for... More

Scrapbooking for 3 days straight may sound like a weird form of torture... but even after the paper cuts, late nights, and reeeeally early mornings, I look forward to it twice a year. My family’s crazy little tradition is called "Scrapbook Weekend". If you’re anything like me; you have a busy schedule, a suffering photo album, talkative friends and family, and an endless appetite for good cooking. Scrapbook Weekend gives me the chance to learn new layouts, trade materials, or just catch-up on all my photos. Twice a year, all my aunts and cousins (about 18-20 people total) drive to my mom’s house with cars full photos, paper supplies, and the fixin's for some great food. We load all the food in the fridge, spread out our cutters, paper, pictures and embellishments on about 6 or... More

Creating Additional Space in Your Home
As a real estate agent, I often hear from people who want a new home because theyve outgrown the current one. In some cases, people really do need larger homes, but other times, homeowners just need to use their propertyinside and outdifferently. In a tough economy, like the one were in, its especially important to understand that difference. Do you think youve outgrown your house, but cant afford to build an expensive home addition or move to something larger? Thankfully, there are alternatives. One significantly more budget-friendly option I recommend for people who decide to stay put (at least temporarily) is an outdoor storage building. A shed instead of a larger house? you may ask. Absolutely! A great shed, like the ones from Lifetime Products, can free up closets, cabinets, attics, garages and more for other uses. ...

Where to Find Lifetime Tables
We often have consumers ask where they can find Lifetime tables in their area. The simple answer is at most every major retailer! But, here is general list: Sam's Club, Costco Wholesale, BJ's Wholesale, Lowe's, Walmart, Kmart, Shopko, and a variety of regional retailers. However, some of you who have been in some of these stores may not have been able to find Lifetime branded tables. You may have seen a table that looked like a Lifetime folding table and wondered if it really was a Lifetime table. Although most of our tables are sold with the Lifetime brand loud and proud, a few of our retail partners sell our product under their in-store private label brand. To help you find a Lifetime table next time you are out shopping, here's a quick list of some of the private label names that our Lifetime tables have: Mainstays - at...
