Who loves composting? We do! Remember how we introduced the Lifetime 80-Gallon Composter last spring? Well, with its success we have designed a smaller version and are excited to announce—the Lifetime 65-Gallon Composter! We have kept all the same great features but just made it a little smaller. The Lifetime 65-Gallon Composter is constructed of UV-protected high-density polyethylene (HDPE) panels and is black with a galvanized steel base. Its extra large, removable lid makes it easy to load lawn and garden trimmings and organic waste. The lid latches shut to help keep rodents out and compost in. The ingenious tumbler design turns on an axis to allow for easy and balanced rotation. The aerated internal bar mixes compost and allows for air flow. Even if you’ve never composted before, what better time than now to... More

At Lifetime, we're always looking for ways to improve our website to make it easier for you to use.  Most recently, we overhauled how customers access our assembly instructions in the Customer Care section of Lifetime.com.  Why is this a big deal?  Well, Lifetime makes a lot of products, and we're continually finding ways to improve upon them to make them easier to assemble, less expensive, and for various other reasons. When these improvements are made, we have to publish a new version of the assembly instructions for that product. On the surface, that's not a big deal because the instructions get printed and packaged inside the box with the rest of the parts. But what happens when a customer loses the instructions? In the past, we've only shown one version of the assembly instructions on our website -- which... More

Happy Valentine's Day!  We hope you're doing something special on this day built for romance.  We know how Patrick S. of Hampshire, IL is spending his day…celebrating his lucky win of the Lifetime 10' Manta Kayak built for two (or three) people!

Spring is on its way! Well, maybe, depending where you live, right? Nonetheless, we are excited to announce our new “Spring” product… the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed! This 4 x 4 foot garden kit makes it easy to have a successful garden in less space. We’ve been consulting with fellow Utahan, Mel Bartholomew, who invented the square foot garden. The purpose of this smaller garden is to grow a larger, more plentiful harvest with less cost, in less space, using less water and seeds, and less work than traditional gardens. With its simple, do-it-yourself assembly and low-maintenance features, gardening has never been so easy. Not requiring any tools, your garden can be assembled in less than an hour. Growing your own garden can be a very inexpensive and healthier way to consume your vegetables. And ... More

Happy Birthday BSA! The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated and chartered by the United States Congress on February 8, 1910. That means this week, they are 101 years old! Last year, they reached a large milestone as they turned 100! In the summer of 2010, Lifetime received a phone call from a 14-year-old Scout named Mason. He was calling on behalf of the Spectrum program at the local Burton Elementary School in Layton, Utah (very close to Lifetime’s headquarters). Spectrum is a program designed to provide activities for children who are academically gifted. Among their activities, they put on a play once a year, which we hear is a great performance. But he wasn't calling to talk just about the program; he was calling because the local Spectrum program had a problem that was putting their annual play in jeopardy. He... More

This giveaway has ended.  Valentine's Day is next Monday and lovebirds everywhere are scrambling to find just the right gift.  I'll be the first to admit that most people probably don't think about buying Lifetime products for Valentine's Day.  After all, we don't make traditional Valentine gifts like sparkly diamond jewelry, yummy melt-in-your-mouth chocolates, or beautiful long-stemmed roses.  And, we only have two or three products that are even red or pink in color.  But, if you think outside the heart-shaped box just a bit, we do have an ideal Valentine gift that's perfect for romantic outdoor enthusiasts… a kayak built for two (actually three)!  Think about it. What better way to bond with your Valentine than to give a gift that the two of you can enjoy together.  Sure, de... More

As Katie mentioned in the last post, our semi-annual company meeting was a success! By the way, I want to put this disclaimer out there: I was asked to write a blog post on my experience at the Semi-Annual meeting, so I did not volunteer to write this post. So here it goes: I’m sitting backstage feeling a little anxious for the big event. It’s Profit Sharing! It happens twice a year and Katie and I have worked hard getting presentations, videos, and everything else organized for the meeting. As I watch Katie finalize a few things on the final presentation, my adrenaline starts going. The backstage “men in black”, as I call them, give us the queue. Time to begin! The opening video rolls, then Richard (our President) runs out and begins his presentation. He then announces the founder’s wife, Kath... More

Family Fun with the Kayaks!
I had a family reunion a couple weeks ago. This is not your typical family reunion with cousins youve never met, let alone seen, before. My extended family is very close-knit and (I hope its safe to say) we all look forward to the DFR (aka Dixon Family Reunion) every year, truly. My dad and his two siblings take turns planning it each year. This year was my Uncle Brents turn, so we went to Pineview Dam near Huntsville, Utah. I have about 20 cousins in the age range of 28-35. They all have spouses and, on average, 4 kids each; so our family is pushing close to 60 people. The kids range from brand new babies to 16 years old. As you know, Lifetime acquired the kayak company, Dragonfly Innovation, back in February. I bought two of the blueCalypso kayaks and decided Id take them up to the lake and see what kind of reaction they g...
Win Dad a Shed for Father's Day!
This giveaway has ended. Wondering what to get dear old Dad for Father's Day? (Yes, in case you haven't glanced at a calendar recently, Father's Day is just 11 days away June 19.) Last year, I wrote a blog post with some unique Lifetime product ideas to buy for Dad. (Which, I might add, is still a very useful list to read for ideas.) But, this year, I figured rather than just giving you ideas for Dad, why not actually give you a gift for Dad? And, if we're going to give away a gift Dad's are sure to love, we might as well make it one of our most popular items on every Dad's lista shed! That's right, this month, one lucky winner will win a Lifetime 7'x7' shed to give to Dad. Umm, can you say ultimate Dad's Day Gift?! Seriously, what Dad doesn't dream of having his own extra space to use for extra storage area, a woodworking s...
