Have you ever thought a product was designed so well that it deserved a little recognition?image We at Lifetime want you to think that about all our products, which is why we strive for excellence in the engineering and design everything we make. One such product is receiving some good recognition latley. Business Week regularly reports the winners of the IDEA® prize-- “The  (International Design Excellence Awards) program is the premier international competition honoring design excellence in products, ecodesign, interaction design, packaging, strategy, research and concepts.”1

Lifetime’s Fold-Up Trailer was one of the winners of this prestigious award.

image The folks over at gizmag.com picked up on Business Week’s coverage of Lifetime’s Fold-Up Trailer, and have written up a sweet review:

“Trailers are extremely useful items when you need them. When you don't, which for most of us 99% of the time, they can be a storage nightmare... after all, how many urban dwellers have a spare 5 x 8 foot patch in their backyard or garage that couldn't be used for a better purpose. Lifetime's folding trailer design solves this issue by significantly reducing the storage space needed. imageWhen you're done carting loads for the weekend, the trailer folds to just 29 inches wide in a process that takes only 90 seconds.”

Roll It... Lifetime Fold-Up Utility Trailer Video
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...
My backstage experience..
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: Im sitting backstage feeling a little anxious for the big event. Its 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 founders wife, Kathy, will present the Humanitarian of...
Compost your clippings! Garbage Stinks. Compost Doesn’t.
I had the very unpleasant experience recently of dumping excess lawn clippings directly into my garbage can. The can set out in the sun for a few days before I brought it into the garage. A few days later, WHOA! The can smelled like a skunk had stepped in dog doo-doo, rolled around in raw sewage, and then died in there. I was reminded once again, that lawn clippings should not go directly into the garbage can! I have a composter and do a fair amount of composting. To which, I add lawn clippings when I have brown material to balance it out. The ratio is 1 part green: 20 parts brown. I am often asked by people who dont compost if the compost stinks. The answer is no. That sounds strange because of the waste product that goes into making good compost, but its true. If the proportions of green and b...
