Super Bowl Sunday is a fine excuse to throw a great party. You and your guests can cheer on a favorite team, laugh together at outrageous Super Bowl commercials and last but not least, catch up while enjoying the all-important food and drink. Follow these tips to plan a fun, casual Super Bowl Party: Make your guest list and invite your friends with a football-themed e-vite. They can RSVP and get maps to your home online. Purchase football-themed party goods and decorations at a party supply store. Pick up napkins, plates, cups, streamers, etc in your team’s colors. If you are on a tight budget, concentrate your decorating on the table where the food will be served. Prepare the Chili Boats with Fixin’s the day before the Super bowl and simply re-heat. These savory chili boats are tempting because guests can cu... More

Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history. In 2008, we opened a wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China. This means we have tight control over product quality. This is a huge distinction and big advantage over imitation "Lifetime" products made in China by other companies. By having our own manufacturing facility overseas, we can be more globally competitive and more effectively and profitably manage our international sales and distribution to the more than 52 countries we sell products to worldwide. Being wholly-owned also means the facili... More

Where do you pay bills? In a recent survey of my newsletter readers, 43% said they pay bills in their home office/study/den and 45% said they pay bills in the kitchen, living room, dining room or bedroom (the remaining 12% pay bills outside the home). Having a designated home office space makes it simpler and easier to handle incoming mail and paperwork, organize bill paying, and manage your household. But what if you don’t have an entire room that you can dedicate for your workspace? In many homes, the kitchen or dining room table does double duty as a home office. The biggest hitch with this solution is that papers tend to accumulate on the table, leaving nowhere for the family to eat!  It’s not just you who needs to pay bills and manage mail; your children also need a place to do their homework. What if ... More

I was just reading the latest issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine and noticed that January is National Puzzle Month.  Who knew?  For the life of me, I can't find any information regarding who actually declared this celebration or started it, but I'll go along with it.  (If you know the background, leave us a comment and please share!) Personally, I LOVE jigsaw puzzles.  In fact, my husband and I put one together every year as part of our Christmas traditions.  This year was no different.  I set up my Lifetime card table and Lifetime folding chairs in our living room and we started our masterpiece.  This was my first year using our new Lifetime card table for our annual puzzle tradition and it worked great.  The Lifetime card table is extra big (37" compared to mos...

National Night Out
Last night was a fun night in our neighborhood. We celebrated National Night Out. Apparently, most of the country celebrates this event in August. But, because of the summer heat, Texas officially moved its National Night Out to October 7. Plus, we all know, Texas just has to be different! :) The night is a national crime/drug prevention event designed to heighten community awareness and strengthen community spirit. San Antonio and outlying towns hosted various festivals and events last night. And, some individual subdivisions also hosted activities. Our subdivision celebrated by hosting a block party fully sponsored by our Homeowners Association. It was great we just RSVPd and showed up for a yummy dinner and chance to mingle with our neighbors! A free night out of the kitchenwhoo-hoo! Our subdivision is made up of only 64...
Which Lifetime Chair Is Right for You?
Lifetime Products is a leading manufacturer in high-density polyethylenefolding chairs. Keep on the look out andI'm sure you'll notice them everywhere from industrial break rooms to professional waiting rooms. Why? Because they are durable and require very little maintenance to look as good as new throughout many years of constant public use, indoors or out. That's especially important for professional environments, but for me personally, I love Lifetime chairs because THEY'RE COMFORTABLE. If you spend alot of time sitting at a desk suffering from back pains (like I did) you may want to start thinking less about cushioning and more about firm support. I found my cushioned office chair was causing me to slump into the back of the chair with my shoulders rolled forward and absolutely no support against my lower back. My aching...
