This contest has ended! Surprise!  We just finished our March contest last week, and here we are again already announcing April's contest.  We have a good reason for starting so soon…it's a Spring contest!  Ok, really it's Spring and/or Easter. This month we're giving prizes to two winners...and that's not an April Fool's Day joke!   So, time to put on your creative hat and show us your own favorite homemade Spring/Easter craft.  It can be any sort of craft…paint it, sew it, stuff it….make it for you, make it for kids…hang it on a door, or put it on your table.  We don't care what type of craft it is, just as long as it's original, creative, and related to Spring and/or Easter. This contest is reader’s choice. After the ent... More

For most of us in the Lifetime family, winter is on its way out. What does that mean? Time to start cooking compost! For those who don’t know, Lifetime Products makes a Composter! (You can read all about it in my previous post.) The question was asked “How do I separate my compost from my non-composted organic matter?” Good question! First would be getting another composter. One composter would be  for actually making compost in while the other would be for filling up. When you’re done making compost in one, you can empty it and start using it as your “filler” and the other as your “composter”. Of course, this means buying two of our composters, which we wouldn't mind at all. ;) The second idea is what I do with my single Lifetime Composter at my house. I c... More

The beautiful thing about gardening is, in one way or another, everyone is a beginner. Even if you’ve been gardening your whole life, there’s something new to learn about growing different kinds of plants, growing in different climates, or dealing with new pests. If you’re just starting out and contemplating planting a tomato, rose, or petunia, don’t be intimidated.  Trial and error are the best ways to learn. For example, I tried multiple ways to rid my yard of moles. I tried baits, traps, and even vibrating mole repellants to no avail. It wasn’t until I tried castor oil, that I was able to convince the moles to move away. Here are some tips on getting started in the vegetable or flower garden. Follow these 5 S’s and you’ll be well on your way to a productive, beautiful garden.... More

Think Inside the Box
We love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we cant officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever. Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor StorageBox. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the door of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box sh...
Win a Fold-In-Half Table and Chairs to Seat Your Thanksgiving Guests!
This giveaway has ended. Halloween isn't even here yet, but if you have walked through any stores lately, you know that retailers are already in full swing with Thanksgiving and even Christmas displays. Personally, I like to think about one holiday at a time! But, at Lifetime we're already starting to think about the holidays, too with products, sales, and more. In fact, the holiday entertaining season is one of the most popular times for people to purchase Lifetime folding tables and chairs because they need extra dining space for Thanksgiving dinners, extra buffet table space, and more. So even though it's still October, this month our giveaway is geared for your November and December needs. We're giving away a Lifetime 34" Fold-In-Half Square Table and four Lifetime Light Commercial Folding chairs! Square tables - or card...
