Over the past few months, I've been sharing my personal reviews of the Lifetime Yard Cart.  I've come to the conclusion it's an awesome product with lots of cool and unique features.  So far, the only drawback I've discovered is that it is difficult to dump multiple small loads because when the load shifts it is hard to tip the cart back down, both in wheelbarrow and trailer modes.  Ironically though, this negative turned into a huge positive for us when we were spreading our compost.  At first, I thought Lifetime had thought of everything with this product... cup holders, tool holders, trailer mode conversion, slats for building up the sides, and more.  However, after using the Yard Cart for a while, I now have a few more ideas that I think would truly make the Lifetime Yard Cart &q...

Every home owner with a yard or garden to take care of can attest to the necessity of a quality wheelbarrow. Event the ancient Greeks and Chinese, and medieval Europeans knew the value of having a solid, reliable wheelbarrow.1 Wheelbarrows haven’t changed much over the years. Lifetime Products thought it was about time someone challenged that. Lifetime took the design of the traditional contractor’s wheelbarrow, studied it to find out what its shortcomings were, then reinvented it. The result? The Lifetime Wheelbarrow (65011), which gives you superior stability, added maneuverability, and thanks to a re-engineered center-of-gravity and pivot point it lightens your workload by an amazing 85%. Lifetime wheelbarrows: yard work made easy. More

Good friends help friends in need.  We had friends who needed to spread 13 yards of dirt on their lawn, so we loaned them our Lifetime Yard Cart to help make their work easier.  What?  Did you think I was going to say I offered to actually help spread the dirt?  Hey, I said we were good friends, not great friends!  (Just kidding. Marc & Jenna, we love you guys!) Truth be told, the Lifetime Yard Cart was practically screaming for Marc and Jenna to borrow it.  Why?  Because Marc and Jenna live on an acre lot AND they own a 4-wheeler that can pull the Yard Cart in the trailer mode.   This is the kind of dream job the Lifetime Yard Cart was built for.  The measly six yards of compost that we spread on our yard by pushing the Yard Cart like a wheelbarrow was mere child's p...

So, we're curious... Do you, your company, your church, your civic organization, your city, your Mom, yadda yadda use Lifetime Tables?   If so, how many? What kinds? Where are they stored when not in use? Are they stored/transported using Lifetime Table Carts? If so, do you have any feature requests for us? If not, why not?   Please reply with your answers here! Your feedback is GREATLY appreciated! More

School is out!  Wait for it, wait for it.  Yep, there is it, I knew I’d hear it soon.  “Mom, I’m bored.  What can we do today?”  Sigh. Of course, there are the traditional summer activities of swimming pools, parks, and amusement parks.  But, sometimes hanging outside in the heat and dripping in sweat just isn’t appealing.  Personally, I try to so some sort of outing at least twice each week to help break the monotony.  One day is usually focused outside around water either at a swimming pool, splash park, lake, or water park.  The other day I try to find something to do that’s inside.     Earlier this week, we tried out a new indoor play place here in San Antonio called Funtastic Playland.  Wow, where were these places when I was a kid?  It had a ...

Sunday night was the season premiere of Army Wives on Lifetime TV.  I love this show!  Since I'm a military spouse, there are so many aspects of the show that hit pretty close to home.  So naturally, I was glued to the TV anxiously awaiting the fate of my favorite characters.  Now, I've admitted before that I pathetically watch for Lifetime products in TV shows.  Well, Sunday night was no different.  Wait, wait.  I promise I'm not going to write about every single time I see Lifetime products on TV, but I just have to share a snapshot from Sunday night's Army Wives episode!  Why?   Because it highlights a great, yet little-known feature, of the Lifetime picnic table.  Check out this first photo.  What do you notice?  Yep, the t...

Two Lifetime employees submitted some photos after leveling the yard of their new home using one of Lifetime's Wheelbarrows they recently purchased. Jenn and Wes found themselves all caught up over the weekend and then every day after work for a week hauling dirt, raking out rocks, and landscaping the yard with rocks. Luckily they had a handful of willing helpers to get the job done. "We love that Lifetime Wheelbarrows have two wheels, are stable, and so easy to use," said Jen, "Ours has really come in handy."  The first few days started with three truck loads of lava rock that was wheel barrowed and shoveled in to fill the curbing around the stairs and the island (This took 3 days of on and off work). And in the next&nbs...

Sometimes I just amaze myself with how stinkin' creative I am!  Just kidding.  But, I must say though, I am pretty tickled with the clever idea I came up with last week.  Our neighborhood was having a community garage sale, and two days before the sale, the HOA president agreed with my suggestion to hang a banner on the fence at the entrance of the subdivision to help advertise the sale.  We are located right behind a school so lots of parents turn around in our subdivision to drop-off/pick-up their children.  So, we wanted the banner to be out on Thursday and Friday to catch the school traffic. Since I was the one to suggest a banner, I felt obligated to volunteer to check on banner pricing.  Unfortunately, a one-day turnaround was not going to work in our favor, unless we wanted to pay thr...

Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game
If theres one thing I love, its college football season. Having attended a large public university where football is its own institution, Saturdays are always spent in front of the TV watching the NCAA action. I hadnt had the pleasure of actually going to a game and better yet, enjoying the tailgating festivities in more than five years until recently.I might as well spill it now. Im a Gator fan I bleed orange and blue. And now is as good a time as any to be a Gator fan. In case you dont follow college football, the Gators ranked second this year and claimed a spot to play the number one ranked Oklahoma Sooners in this years Bowl Championship Series game in Miami, FL. Essentially, this is the Super Bowl of college football. As a Florida native, I knew I had to make it to this game. A couple friends and I were able to g...
Over 500 Lifetime Employees Beautify Two Parks and a Cemetery in West Point
What another great service experience last weekend! On Saturday, September 17, the remaining 500 Lifetime employees (who did not attend Ogdens Service Project on September 10) helped clean up Loy Blake Park, East Park and West Point City cemetery in West Point, Utah to participate in Lifetimes 6th Annual Employee Community Service Project. Between both projects, we dedicated approximately 2,700 man-hours, saving both cities thousands of dollars in labor to accomplish complete park makeovers. These projects included everything from installing a drainage system in the playground area that was collecting water, cutting tree rings, leveling headstones, replenishing bark, rebuilding a fire pit to painting playground equipment and picnic tables. It was quite a site to see so many people working together to make the parks and cemet...
