As a real estate agent, I often hear from people who want a new home because they’ve outgrown the current one.  In some cases, people really do need larger homes, but other times, homeowners just need to use their property—inside and out—differently.  In a tough economy, like the one we’re in, it’s especially important to understand that difference.  Do you think you’ve outgrown your house, but can’t 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, ...

One of my Dad's traditions at the lake house is to build a campfire outside almost every night.  My dad likes to eat popcorn around the fire, but when the grandkids visit, it's time to break out the good ol' traditional smores!  After all, what kid can resist melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows smooshed between graham crackers?  For a change of pace for the kids' campfire sweet treats, one night my sister-in-law introduced us all to Hobo Pies.  If you've never had a Hobo Pie, you're in for, well, something different from smores.  :)  First of all, to make a Hobo Pie over a campfire, you need an iron pie maker, available in camping departments.  Then, you'll need bread and some fillings.  In the tradition of "pie", my sister-in-law br...

Roll It... Lifetime Fold-Up Utility Trailer Video
Sigh. So, I think I finally have my house and garage rearranged and organized to make room for all of the Christmas presents Santa brought. It was just a few things but, boy, they seemed to all be really big in size. As you know, I LOVE hosting garage sales. So, consequently, that means I insisted on storing everything we cleaned out until we have our garage sale in the spring. Luckily, we have two big attics in our house to stash all of our junk. But, I know lots of you don't have the luxury of an attic or basement so you have to haul your stuff to a storage building, or eliminate the hoarding all together and simply haul it to Goodwill or the dump. Oh, and I know how those multiple trips to storage buildings or the dump can get tiresome. Even a pickup truck can fill up fast. If this sounds all too familiar to you, maybe i...

At Lifetime, we strongly believe that part of our corporate responsibility as a successful business is to support our local community. So, I am excited to tell you that this Memorial Day we will, once again, be hosting our "Salute Our Troops" event! This event will be held only at our Lifetime Store location in Riverdale, Utah.

Continuous Kayak Innovation with the New Lifetime Monterey
Our water sports team is constantly trying to improve our current lineup, as well as design new innovative and stylish kayaks. We looked at our popular Daylite and Lotus models carefully, put our heads together, and out popped the LifetimeMonterey! The Lifetime Monterey Kayak is the newest addition to our kayak family, but it still has many of the great qualities of its cousins, the Daylite and the Lotus. The new Monterey is 8 in length and 29.5 wide. We have added enhanced tracking channels to the bottom of the kayak which will help keep the kayak from turning side-to-side with each paddle stroke. It will also allow the paddler to go a greater distance with less effort - who doesnt want that?!As with all Lifetime kayaks, the Monterey is extremely stable and great for everyone from kids to adults. This new kayak also has ou...
