When Lifetime started this blog nearly three years ago, it was with the intention of showing you how we all incorporate Lifetime products into our everyday lives.  Today, this blog has grown into so much more.  But, every once in a while, I still like to share just the normal, everyday stories about using Lifetime products.  Sometimes I really have to think, ponder, and put on my creative hat to come up with my lifestyle blog post ideas.  Other times, they just unfold right before my eyes - literally. Look at these photos.  You probably think I purposely set up my Lifetime Card Table and Chairs just for a photo op.  Nope.  The other day I went to the grocery store while my husband stayed home with the kiddos.  When I pulled in the driveway, I was welcomed by this absolut...

Whew, the crazy holiday season is almost over.  All the gifts are opened, all the relatives are gone,  and now all the cleanup begins.  Lots of presents, lots of food, and lots of decorations add up to …well, lots of trash.  But, before you start chunking everything in the garbage can, a majority of your holiday trash can actually be saved to make one last great gift to give to... your Lifetime Compost Tumbler! Holidays provide lots of great compost material that often gets overlooked. Take a look at all of these items you probably have laying around your house now that Santa has come and gone that you can easily add to your Lifetime Composter. Do put in your composter: Wrapping paper - Use only non-foil, non-glossy papers.  Be sure to remove any ribbons and tape.   Tear ...

Lifetime Products is a leading manufacturer in high-density polyethylene folding chairs. Keep on the look out and I'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 bac... More

This past weekend, my husband and I took our kids to the Christmas Celebration at SeaWorld San Antonio.  The kids love seeing all of the extra holiday decorations and special festivities.  And, of course, getting pictures with Santa Shamu is always a thrill!  We've actually been  to the SeaWorld Christmas Celebration the past four years.  It's somehow unintentionally turned into an annual holiday tradition for us.  While some things like Santa Shamu and the giant Christmas tree at the front gate are always the same, most of the other displays have changed each year.  This year, one of the new Christmas attractions was Snowman Village, an area featuring snowman characters resembling famous people.  Guess who was the first snowman that I saw?  San Antonio Spurs Basketball Playe...

If you're like me, the lights are up and the tree is decorated…but now I need to figure out what to put under the tree for everyone.  Sure, Dad can always use a new shirt and Mom can ooh-and-aah over the latest kitchen gadget, but sometimes it's a nice surprise to get them something totally unexpected. So, in case you are still struggling to come up with an out-of-the-ordinary gift idea, I've pulled together a few unique items from Lifetime Products that are sure to make Santa's elves  - and your family - smile.

Since its beginning in 1962, Christmas Village in Ogden, Utah has grown to an extraordinary seasonal attraction. Each year thousands of tourists and citizens come to view the Christmas lights and cottages, drawing visitors from great distances as well as local families who have made it part of their holiday tradition. Spectators find themselves in a dazzling winter wonderland set aglow with Christmas lights and a unique setting of cottages modeled after Santa’s village at the North Pole. This year, Lifetime joined in the local community Christmas tradition by transforming a Lifetime shed into a cottage. Complete with windows, flooring and steel trusses, the shed naturally made for a great cottage in this winter wonderland setting! The steel-reinforcements on its plastic walls and roof gave Santa, th... More

 This giveaway has ended.  Ho! Ho! Ho! 'Tis the giving season.  Eariler today on our Facebook page, we challenged you to help us gain 50 new Facebook fans in just a few hours.  We said we'd reciprocate by giving away not just one, but two prizes this month.  Unfortunately, we didn't reach our new fan goal today.

Things are starting to look a little different along the Wasatch Front in Utah, and I'm not just talking about the fresh layers of snow on the mountains.   We are excited to tell you that Backyards Inc., the Lifetime factory retail store, is changing its name to "Lifetime Store". Start watching for the name change to take place over the course of the next four months with updates to all outdoor signage to be completed by February 2011.   For those of you who don't live in Utah, you'll see a change, too.  Our online store will soon share the Lifetime Store name to give customers a simpler shopping experience. So why did we make this change?  Most importantly, for you - our customers!  Even though Backyards Inc. has always been owned by Lifetime, there was no easy way for our customers to in... More

Free Picnic Table Rides?!
This picture just made me laugh and it begged to be blogged about for an explanation. When you live in the country, fun often comes in strange and crazy forms. This summer, my city-raised son experienced yet another new adventure at Mammy and Papas house in the countrypicnic table rides! (Yes, you read that rightnot pony rides, but picnic table rides.) Ok, probably not the most exciting thing in the world or his most memorable experience, but it was different to say the least. Remember last post I was talking about how easy it is to move my parents Lifetime 4-person picnic table compared to the wooden A-frame picnic table we had when I was a kid? My parents did in fact get rid of the small wooden A-frame table and now use their Lifetime 4-person picnic table for daily use by the pond. But, what I didnt mention is that they a...
Lifetime Chairs on CSI:NY!
I may not be quite as sharp as the CSI team, but my keen eyes did spot several Lifetime tables and chairs onlast week's CSI:NY "Turbulence" episode! (A rerun BTW.) Some companies pay BIG bucks to get ideal product placement (meaning actually using or showing the product) in movies and TV shows. You know, like how all the American Idol judges have a giant Coca-Cola cup sitting in front of them every show!? But, sometimes, a company is fortunate enough to have its product used just because it is the ideal product for a scene. I'm always watching the background shots of various shows, especially home improvement shows, to see if they use Lifetime tables. Every once in a while, I catch a glimpse of one. But, the foldingtables and chairs in this CSI: NYepisode were pretty hard to miss. Well, for me anyway.You probably wouldn't n...
Backstage at Lifetime's Semi-Annual Meeting
Peering around the curtains, I began scanning the auditorium. It was quickly filling with around 800-900 Lifetime employees (judging by the seat capacity of 1000). Just a few more minutes until starting time... I told myself. Before I knew it, I felt the stage crew manager tapping my shoulder. Time to start he said. I looked at my laptop and queued up our opening video... here we go Welcome backstage to a behind the scenes look at Lifetimes Profit Sharing meeting 2011. If you read this blog 6 months ago, you know that our Profit Sharing meetingis a semi-annual tradition at Lifetime. This January marks the 44th time weve gotten together to share company updates, new products, and more often than not, a lovely bonus check for every employee in proportion to our profitability over the past 6 months! Pretty sweet employee perk, ...
