Bar codes help make life easier from manufacturing all the way through the supply chain, and up to the check-out register. While you're shopping for products, you can look for better deals and more information by scanning traditional UPCs with your phone, an app, and an internet connection. Pretty cool, right? Something new that you may have seen cropping up on billboards, articles, advertisements, and even product displays and packaging is a new kind of bar code, a 2D barcode.  These new 2D barcodes are also called a QR code which is short for quick response. UPCs are a 1D (one-dimensional) type of bar code. Traditionally, a laser is used to illuminate a thin stripe across the barcode. A 2D barcode contains multiple lines of information and require multiple lasers to read. Since not many of us carry lasers around in o... More

A few months ago we told you about our newest lawn and garden product - the Lifetime Raised Garden Kits.   We are thrilled to tell you they are quickly becoming a very popular product!  These 4'x4' kits provide a full garden setup in less than one hour of easy do-it-yourself assembly with no tools required.  But, a lot of you may still be wondering if they are really that easy to assemble and if they really work.  Well, wonder no more!  If you're a loyal reader of this blog, you may be familiar with our fellow Geekstyle blogger, Joe.  It turns out that not only does Joe get geeky with techy things, but he also gets geeky about going green, too!  A few weeks ago, we gave Joe a Lifetime Raised Garden Kit to review and use on his personal green/gardening website called PathTo...

This past Saturday, October 9, Lifetime Products employees met at Clearfield City’s Steed Park for Lifetime’s 5th Annual Local Community Service Project. What a sight! More than 800 employees were busy laying sod, trimming trees, leveling baseball diamonds, picking up trash, and much more, to beautify and improve the 23-acre Steed Park for local residents.   It was a great experience working together outside of our normal everyday jobs to do something to give back and help improve our local community.  It was also a true team effort.  Everyone pitched in to help in some way or another... even Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson was busy trimming trees by the pond.  Me?  I rolled up my sleeves to help stain the pavilion which was a little mes...

Sigh. So, I think I finally have my house and garage rearranged and organized to make room for all of the Christmas presents Santa brought. It was just a few things but, boy, they seemed to all be really big in size. As you know, I LOVE hosting garage sales. So, consequently, that means I insisted on storing everything we cleaned out until we have our garage sale in the spring. Luckily, we have two big attics in our house to stash all of our junk. But, I know lots of you don't have the luxury of an attic or basement so you have to haul your stuff to a storage building, or eliminate the hoarding all together and simply haul it to Goodwill or the dump. Oh, and I know how those multiple trips to storage buildings or the dump can get tiresome. Even a pickup truck can fill up fast. If this sounds all too familiar to you, maybe i... More

Re-inventing the Wheel(barrow)
It is speculated that the wheelbarrow had it’s beginnings as early as 100 B.C., it’s original design being a simple platform or basket with a large wheel underneath and a pair of handles which the operator used to push it along. It was obviously designed as a “carrier”, and the loads it has carried have varied widely throughout the years. Spanning many cultures all over the world, it has been a vital piece of equipment in a variety of occupations. Wheelbarrows have a long and honorable history. They have been used in early military operations to transport supplies and injured soldiers. Various forms and designs have been found throughout history to transport produce and carry building materials for construction. Wheelbarrows were crucial to world-wide mining operations as well. While the wheelbarrow is still vital to such ...
iPhone Cases, Basketball Hoops, and Video Reviews
My husband and I made the big leap a about a month ago. We bought iPhones. I have to say, as reserved as I was about making a jump to such a trendy gadget of which I thought I wouldnt really need, I LOVE it! It is soooo user friendly and the voice control feature is astonishing. It is so cool to do a Google search just by talking to your phone, then simply tap the phone number Google pulls up to call the place you were trying to find... or tap the Google map to get GPS directions! Amazing. But, of course, we couldnt just simply purchase iPhones and be done. Oh, no. Naturally, we had to find snazzy cases, too. After running around to more than five different stores, I narrowed my choice down to the Speck Candy Shell and the iFrogz Luxe. I loved the fun two-tone colors and unmatched durability of the Candy Shell, yet the iFrog...
A Pest-proof (and Bear-proof) Composter
Using a composter is a great way to reduce, reuse, and recycle yard and kitchen waste. Unfortunately, humans aren't the only ones who have figured out the benefits of compostingpests and rodents have, too! I frequently hear on Twitter and online forums from people who have squirrels, rats, and other pesky critters taking advantage of the free dining facility in their backyard composter. Eeeew! As unpleasant as that may be, I do have good news... we've designed the Lifetime Compost Tumbler to be pest-proof! How? First, we made it a little trickier for pests to climb onto a Lifetime Composter bin by raising it off the ground on a weather-resistant steel frame. But, even if critters do manage to make it onto the bin of a Lifetime Composter, the double-walled, high-density polyethylene shell prevents rodents from eating a hole i...
