Neighborhood Basketball Tournament

If you’re family is like mine, you’ve got some real basketball fans in the house.  Instead of just watching games on TV during basketball season, I try to get my kids and neighbors in on the action with neighborhood basketball tournaments. Whether you’re playing “H-O-R-S-E” or a simple game of one-on-one, there’s just something about a basketball goal that demands for friends to get together and have some fun.

You could play family vs family, girls vs boys, or even adults vs kids (just be careful—if the kids win, they will never let you live it down!). Get your game started on an adjustable-height basketball system from Lifetime Products—that way, you can lower the hoop, so even younger kids can be all-stars.

To celebrate the championship game, you could even give away hot chocolate and snacks to everyone who turned out to watch the event. Or maybe you could turn the entire tournament into an official neighborhood event and hold a potluck dinner after the final game. This is an awesome way to bring people together and get to know your neighbors better. So, get out there, give that basketball a workout and get the whole neighborhood in on the fun!

Fall Yard Sale Tips
Ive been to a lot of yard sales. At a recent one, I bought a 1921 replica Coca-Cola serving tray and made arrangements with a seller to pick up a refinished oak tool chest that I plan to use as a coffee table. After years of experience buying and selling, Ive also brought home what I call my three Ps for a successful yard sale: Planning, Presentation, and Pricing. Planning is crucial. If you sell it, they will come, right? Wrong. Run a classified ad in your local newspaper. Be sure to include popular and big-ticket items as well as the date, time, and location of your sale. Post a free listing at Craigslist.org also. Then make signs to put up at the nearest major intersections and other strategic spots to direct people to your sale. (Check with your local municipality or homeowners association first to make sure its okay to...
Ta-Da! Our Blog Makeover Reveal!
Notice anything different around here today? Yep, we gave ourselves a facelift! We've been working hard over the last few months to move this blog from a boxed program to our own admin site for a bunch of backend technical reasons that I won't bother to bore you with. 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?

We've also changed up the way we've categorized our blog posts so you can quickly fin...
Lifetime Harvest Exchange Shares Fresh Produce with Employees and Local Food Bank
If theres one thing we love at Lifetime, its food. Lets be honest here who doesnt?! So earlier this summer, employees started growing their own gardens for fresh produce, including some right here at Lifetime! But the hard work put into growing veggies isnt where all the fun is. Its in the eating. So for two months, we've been hosting our very own Farmers Market. Every Tuesday from August till September 25, Lifetime employees have been exchanging produce with each other during our Harvest Exchange. Weve seen gorgeous peppers, corn, tomatoes, lettuce, kale, and just about anything else you can imagine. The best part about this, is all the food that hasnt been picked up by employees has been donated to the local Food Bank to benefit members of our community. Often, having fresh vegetables in the home is a difficult thing, and...
