Times are tough, so are Lifetime’s products

The United States of America is officially in a recession. Employers are tightening their belts, employees are doing the same. Lifetime Products hasn’t been immune, but they’re much better off than others.

early backboard by Lifetime Products Back when Lifetime was started, the founder did so on a shoestring budget. The company grew, not so much because of a lot of marketing or rapid expansion, but because the products featured high-quality components, superior workmanship and construction, and were affordably priced. Other companies grew rapidly, funded by enormous debt from banks who, not so long ago, were all too willing to loan money.

But in today’s economy banks are very hesitant to loan money. This is hurting those businesses that need loans to survive. Lifetime has gotten to where it is today without acquiring much corporate debt and is much less dependant on loans.

Why does that matter to you, the consumer? Lifetime has a history of stability and is hunkering down to make the best of this rough patch so they can be there when the economic recovery starts. Equally as important, the products made by Lifetime are still a sound choice for you because of their durability, quality components, and superior construction. They’re designed for the long-haul, so the Lifetime products that you buy today should serve you well through the recession and for years on the other side.

Pumpkin Carving Fun
For a fun family activity last night we thought it would be fun to do some pumpkin carving. It was an amusing evening that our two boys thoroughly enjoyed.As soon as I left work, I picked up the boys and we drove down to a local outdoor produce stand that always seems to have a great selection of pumpkins, all in different shapes and sizes, each one seemed to have their own personality. I think Josh and Jake changed their minds on which pumpkin they each wanted about eight times. Originally Josh was really set on a small pumpkin just a little bit larger than my fist, (I dont think I have the patience to carve a pumpkin that small), so I had to use my best diplomatic efforts to convince him to choose a different pumpkin. He eventually chose another one-- the largest one out there. Jake also chose one that I am sure outweighed ...

More important to you is that, in the process, we also overhauled our look! It may not be with Botox or hair color, but even blogs need a makeover every now and then. We started by changing up our look to give it a lighter feel. We wanted to make it easier for you to read and quickly see teasers of several posts at once. Want to know who writes for our blog? With our new blogger profile section, it's easy for you to see who we each are and what we write about most of the time.
