If you are going camping this summer or planning a July 4th picnic on-the-go, then our newest product is perfect for you - the Lifetime Folding Tailgate Table!  Although we designed this new table with a tailgater in mind, don't let the name mislead you - this recreational table is ideal for picnics, camping, or any outdoor get-together. Simply put, this table is basically like a Lifetime banquet table with a metal grilling table attached to it - it saves you from lugging around two tables all the time.  It has a 5'6" x 28" high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tabletop for prepping or serving food.  (You can even easily sit four people around the table to use it as a dining table.)  At the end of the table,  there is an attached 28" x 15" heavy-duty grill rack with utensil holder.   But, the b...

Thanks to everyone who entered this month's giveaway to try and win the Lifetime 7'x7' Shed for their Dad for Father's Day.  We received some very touching stories about how much your Dads mean to you and why you wanted to win this shed for Dad.   But, in the end, the winner picked by random.org was Sonya R. of Knoxville, TX.  Congrats, Sonya.  We hope your husband enjoys this year's Father's Day present for years to come! We also heard some great feedback about which features you liked best about this relatively-new Lifetime 7'x7' Shed.  By far (and not surprisingly), the feature most of you liked the best was the full-length roof skylight.  That's a pretty awesome addition to a shed!  Other popular answers were the shatterproof windows that open and the customizable shelving.

Last month, Katie shared with you that we have lots of new products on the horizon.  I'm happy to tell you that one of these new products is a Lawn & Garden product that is now available… a Lifetime Adirondack Chair! If you're still wondering what to get Dad for Father's Day, this is a perfect gift to give your Dad or husband to help him relax this summer in his backyard, on the front porch, or on the beach with his feet in the sand.  (It's also good for moms too, so don't feel guilty about purchasing a matching chair for her!) What will Dad love about the new Lifetime Adirondack Chair?  Lots of things, starting with the way it looks.  It's manly - no fluffy cushions or dainty wicker.  This is a sip-your-beverage and admire-your-lawn-work kind of chair.   (But, as you ca...

We have great news! Mark Whiting, chief financial officer of Lifetime Products Inc, was named a CFO of the Year in the June issue of Utah Business Magazine (read all about it). Whiting was recognized for his 22-year contribution in building a “recession-proof” company, and a company that has become an international player in the sporting goods and outdoor products industry. The first time you meet Mark Whiting, you are surprised by his genuine warmth. He laughs often, listens attentively, and usually refers to himself as a “bean-counter”. When asked about being nominated for the Utah Business CFO of the Year Award, he bursts into laughter (I experienced that one myself). Though he would not say he deserves this award, the growing numbers speak for themselves …...

Last summer on this blog, we wrote about one of our newest products, the Lifetime Tru-Motion™ Cane.  Here at Lifetime, we predicted this cane's breakthrough design was going to change the way we all look at canes…. and we were right!  I'm thrilled to tell you that the Lifetime Tru-Motion™ Cane was named "Best New Product" by Drug Store News. The award was bestowed recently at ECRM's Home Health Care 2011 EPPS Show and is given in recognition of the best new product invention from the more than 50 suppliers at the event.  Obviously, we are excited that we have an award-winning product.  But, we are even more excited to know that this product is truly making a difference in people's lives.  Former American Medical Association President Dr. John C. Nelson even said, "The Lif... More

 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 list…a 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 hi... More

As consumers, we have become accustomed to looking for safety features when making important purchase decisions, especially when it comes to products like vehicles, power tools, and baby items.  But, did you know you should also look for safety features when buying a folding table, too?   In my past few blog posts, I've been diving into various topics that help you make more educated folding table purchases.  Unfortunately, probably the most overlooked features consumers consider when buying a folding table are safety features. The last thing you need is for your table to collapse while you are using it! So, what should you look for to ensure you are purchasing a safe table?  A secure locking mechanism for the table legs.  Now, the tricky part is that locking mechanisms will vary depending on t...

You've probably already gotten this question... but how was your Memorial Day weekend? Ours was great! As you probably read in our recent post, once again Lifetime partnered with the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF) to celebrate Memorial Day with our annual "Salute Our Troops" event. We put on a big sale at our Lifetime Store in Riverdale, complete with a free-throw contest, free ice cream, and kids activities-- with the goal to donate 5% of all proceeds to the UMFF. It was a blast! We're excited to announce that we even surpassed last year's donation for this great organization, and raised $1,712! We are proud to have been able to contribute to a cause that helps military families in our own community.  Thank you to all veterans past and present who serve our countr... More

Shed Project Update
Ok, for those of you following my blogs, we haven’t forgot about our shed project. It just kind of got put on the back burner with summer vacations, back-to-school etc. But, we’re ready to start tackling it again. Like I mentioned before, unfortunately, we really only have one ideal place for ashed in our backyard since we have a sloped yard and lots of trees. It will be in the back corner with fence on two sides and trees on the other. If you take a look at the pictures, you can see where we plan to put it and why it’s going to be slightly challenging. We did some measuring the other day. The space we have to work with is really only about 6’ wide before we’d have to start removing trees, which we don’t want to do. A 5’x8’ shed would fit perfectly! Of course, things are never as simple as they seem with our projects. We hav...
Our Shed Arrives!!
Its been several months since I first wrote about wanting/needing to build a shed in our backyard. Great news - you no longer have to read any more about my shed planning or problems. Why? Because last week we finally built our Lifetime shed! Whoo-hoo! Applause please. So, lets start at the beginning. We had our shed delivered to us. Before the delivery truck arrived, we assumed we would have to move our car out of the garage to keep the shed package until we were ready to build. We are building an 8x5 shed so naturally the packing is going to be huge and in several boxes. WRONG! When the driver opened his truck, he only had twoyes, 2 small boxes. Trust me, I double-checked the packing slip to make sure he brought everything. After that, I then noticed Lifetime actually prints right on the box in big print box 1 of 2 and box...
After dinner, head out and go shopping! Black Friday!!!
What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? My wifes favorite part is going shopping! I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?). My goal is to help you know where you can find our products. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess.

Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! Love my Pumpkin Carving Table!
Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didn’t really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and ...
