We flew to Ohio to visit my parents last week.  The kids had a blast at Mammy and Papa's house and the trip went by way too fast, as usual. I know it's crazy, but as soon as our adventure began, I couldn't help but think of Lifetime. When we went through the airport security checkpoint, I counted seven Lifetime tables just at the one gate I was using!  You know the table you put your carry-on luggage and shoes on before you push them through the conveyor belt?  Yep, a majority of the time, those are Lifetime tables!  Considering all of the hundreds of thousands of things that get dropped and scooted on the tables each day, they were in pretty good shape.  It definitely speaks well to the strength and durability of Lifetime tables.  (I did notice, however, they've started bringing in a few metal t...

In the months since we’ve started this blog, I've received several questions regarding Lifetime's fold-in-half tables... interestingly enough, most people ask the basic question: How do you to unfold them? Esther from Niceville, FL wrote in yesterday: "I just bought your 5 ft fold-in-half table. It’s great, but I do not know how to open it up and there wasn't any directions. Sorry, I am 69 years old and not mechanically minded and am afraid that I might do something to mess it up..." How do you unfold it?? The first few times I’ve seen this question, I admit, I thought it wouldn’t be all that hard. But then I walked down to our showroom and tried to open a new table myself... it took a little more elbow grease thought! I looked into why this is, and it turns out our engineers developed these tables t... More

Earlier this summer, we had a garage sale.  We had a lot of junk treasures, to clean out.  I was excited about the prospect of making a good chunk of change based on a few of our "big" objects and the oodles of infant gear and kids' clothes, which are always hot garage sale items.  But, I knew that presentation was the key to getting more things sold.  The neater my "treasures" were displayed, the quicker and better they would sell. We have annual garage sales so I've somewhat perfected my strategies over the years.  I usually try to arrange things similar to a mini-store with all like-items placed together.  Normally, I have enough table space simply by putting a big piece of plywood on top of our sawhorses, and setting up my card table and Lifetime 4'x2' table.   I also always use my...

Like most people, I enjoy firing up the BBQ grill to cook dinner outside. I’m usually a big fan of steaks, marinated pork loins, and the occasional chicken breasts. Last week, however, I almost tried a new cut of meat… RAT!! Ugh. My husband opened the lid to light the grill and, much to his surprise, a rat was scurrying around under the rack! Unfortunately, this isn’t our first rat encounter. About a month ago, I was in our backyard and saw two rats run across our wooden fence. I FREAKED! We just had friends in a subdivision a few miles down the road who had one rat do $8,000 damage to their new house when a rat in their attic chewed through AC lines! And now, the nasty little vermin are daring to venture into my yard. Let me make it clear – I don’t do RODENTS!! I immediately called our extermi... More

My best friend recently replaced all her wicker patio furniture with Lifetime patio furniture—her wicker chairs and table had rotted from sun exposure in less than two years! As she said, “I like the wicker look, but I’m not made out of money. These tables and chairs will last forever.” Maybe they won’t last forever, but they should last a good deal longer, and I agree with her that they look a lot better. Her wicker furniture was faded and ratty in the first summer, even before it fell apart. The clean, smooth finish on her new Lifetime patio furniture will last much longer. I know, because I’ve been using Lifetime tables and chairs as patio furniture for ages. Long before I came to work for Lifetime, we had a Lifetime picnic table on our deck and Lifetime folding chairs sitting in the s... More

Our friends over at the Costco Blog have a very nice write-up on our 44" Round Picnic Table. They also mention our durable banquet tables and chairs, and even praise our revolutionary folding trailer. Thanks for the kudos guys! *Costco Blog is not affiliated with Costco Warehouses or Costco.com More

Lifetime Wheelbarrows makes light work of big projects
Look out the window, spring is here time to get digging, planting, transplanting, and hauling wait, hauling? Yup, youre going to have to move all that compost, all those pavers and blocks, potted shrubs, soil, bags of fertilizer, mountains of mulch the list goes on and on, but it all needs to be done, and lets face it, packing it my hand just isnt a viable option! Thats where wheelbarrows come in to play. Sometimes called a garden cart or garden wagon, a wheelbarrow fills a much needed role in any backyard or landscaping project. Wheelbarrows help carry more per load, and help carry even very heavy items. But thats where traditional wheelbarrows fall short. Traditional wheelbarrows typically have one wheel at the front of the basket, leaving you to life the weight of the load on the pivot point of the wheel. Sure, its easie...
