With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your garden. Here in Utah, it has felt like Spring all winter long. We have had a very mild winter. I fear, however, there is more snow to come which means the tulips and daffodils are in for a rude awaking.  It’s a good time to start building up your compost reserves to feed those plants that will feed you this summer. Lifetime is still very much in the composter business and we have had tremendous success with our composters. I feel we have helped to make another step in "greening up" our planet with the vast amounts of Lifetime composters that are composting away in yards all over the world. I'm excited to share with you that because of the success of our composters, we have developed a new version based on feedback from our custo... More

Lights, camera, action!  It has been another exciting week here at Lifetime. On Monday, Lifetime was featured in a Made in Utah segment on Studio 5, KSL's local lifestyle show.  The hour-long show featured a pre-recorded segment (starring yours truly) that was filmed in the Lifetime Store, as well as three live segments with host Darin Adams in our factory.   Studio 5 is doing a week-long series to show products and companies that are made in Utah. We were honored they decided to start with Lifetime!   Filming the pre-taped piece was SO much fun. Studio 5 Producer, Stephanie, was a blast and great to work with. She was very creative and full of energy. Who knew sipping lemonade on a Lifetime Glider Bench would be so fun?  For the live segments, the KSL camera lady, Jen, showed up about 10:... More

Back when I was a kid, my Dad asked me to look at some computer specs and "pick the one we wanted". He was a very frugal man and told me to make sure it would "last me though college". That was probably a bit naive, but neither of us knew any better. Today I have a "computer" with a much faster processor, more RAM, more storage space, and a significantly faster Internet connection -- it fits in my pocket and I call it a "smartphone". It really is amazing, the technology that we take for granted. Here at Lifetime Products, we've always used technology to solve problems -- not just because it's "cool" -- though a lot of it is really, really cool! Such is the case with smartphones and tablets! If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Windows Phone 7 we have an app for you! Our apps put our information about all our pro... More

 This giveaway has ended. You asked for it so we listened!  In December when we asked giveaway entrants to tell us what they would buy if they won a gift certificate to the Lifetime Store, one of the most popular answers was a Lifetime Shed.  So, this month, one lucky winner will win a Lifetime 7'x7' Storage Shed!  We figured it's the perfect time to give away a shed since some of you probably made a resolution to get more organized this year, others are still trying to figure out where to store all their holiday decorations, and a few more of you might be starting your spring cleaning already. This 7'x7' shed retails for $929 in the Lifetime Store online and is one of our newer and most popular sizes.  (Whoa!  Can you say HUGE product giveaway?)  In addition to its convenient size, o...

Now that you've had some time to assemble that new Lifetime Portable Basketball System you got for Christmas, let's cover a few important things that every basketball hoop owner should know.  (Yes, that means this is important for you to read even if you aren't a brand new basketball hoop owner.) Portable basketball systems are convenient. You can purchase a Lifetime Basketball System and be playing basketball the same day. However, when you assemble a portable basketball system, it is important to always follow the manufacturer's instructions very carefully.  And, that means right down to the final instruction about filling your portable base. I have seen lots of systems with weights, bags of cement, or bricks on top of the base to hold it down - like in these pictures. This is a big "no-no" and very dangerous.&nb... More

This past Saturday was a day we all look forward to here at Lifetime all year long - it was our semi-annual corporate meeting. Yes, it requires us giving up a couple hours on our Saturday, but it's worth it! First of all, it's always great to see about 1,000 of our employees gathered together at one time. But, more importantly, it's also when we get to hear how Lifetime as a company fared during the previous year and we get to hear where we are headed for the new year. And, the owner is gracious enough to share a portion of the company's profits and gives all employees a bonus check at this meeting for helping in the company's success - just one of our many fantastic employee benefits at Lifetime Products! We started this year's meeting by recapping some of the past year's highlights. As part of the recap, Lifetime President... More

Lifetime at the Lake House
My parents recently bought a vacation house at Lake Erie and I saw it for the first time when I went home to Ohio last month. (Boy, good thing I made the trip to Ohio because its given me tons to blog about!) I was happy to see they had furnished several areas of the house with Lifetime products. (I taught them well!) My parents actually became Sams Club members for the first time just so they could buy some Lifetime products for their new house since Sams Club has such a large selection. Remember my last post and how I was talking about my parents still having a heavy picnic table at home that they actually move with a lawn mower? Well, apparently, it IS possible to teach an old dog new tricks! My parents purchased a Lifetime 8-foot picnic table for their patio at their lake house. Hip-hip, hooray! Since their backyard has...
Hide it Under a Skirt
My inspiration for this blog came from a design show I was watching on HGTV a few weeks ago – Summer Showdown. Two expert HGTV designers took the same exact family room and competed to make it the most functional and attractive for the family. Vern Yip was one of the designers. I love Vern’s design style….very simple, comfy, and cozy. And, he’s not over-the-top with whacky, impractical ideas like a lot of the designers. Anyway, the family kept a huge dog kennel in their family room. Vern very cleverly put a table over the kennel and used it as an end table beside the couch. He then used fabric to make a fitted cover for the table to hide the kennel and make the end table attractive. (Here’s the link to the episode. Click to the second picture showing Vern’s winning design and you can just barely see the dog kennel/end table...
Slam Dunk in Your Pool
I sure hope you had a fun fourth of July! We had a great weekend, but we didnt do anything special or festive other than watch fireworks. Kind of sad... especially since our tradition, when we lived in Arizona, was to host a pool party and BBQ at our house every Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day. Wed invite our four closet friends and spend the day playing 3-on-3 volleyball and then the guys would throw down a serious game of hoops with our Lifetime Poolside basketball/volleyball system. Lets get something straight. Im not talking about a leisurely game where you splash around in the pool and daintily tap the ball over the net or into the hoop for fear of knocking down the flimsy goal. Im talking about a game of volleyball where you actually have to jump up to spike the ball over the net, instead of simply lifting your ...
