Think Inside the Box

smoker 1.jpgWe love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we can’t officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever.

Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the “door” of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box shuts the door. His smoker is out of sight and protected from the elements.smoker 2.jpgsmoker 3.jpg

Again, we don’t officially sanction this type of use of our product, but think this was certainly a pretty clever idea.smoker 4.jpg

The Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box is a great product. I use mine as a giant toy box big enough to hold even the bigger toys. My parents use theirs to store pool supplies, and have installed boards to divide it into compartments for pool toys, too.

If you don’t have one of our deck storage boxes, you can check them out in the USA at Lowe’s. They come in two sizes (80-gallon and 130-gallon), and in two different color schemes. You can also find them in the Lifetime Store Online.

Thanks so much for sharing, Stan.  If you have a creative way you use your Lifetime product like Stan did, drop us a line on this blog, our Facebook page, or via email to pr@lifetime.com.  We'd love to hear how you think outside - or inside - the box!

I think we can use it to store jewellery and other accessories. It can be used to store sport equipments and other accessories.

Hello.

Sorry we don't make covers for them. That's a good idea however.

Folding round table
If youre considering buying a card table, you owe it to yourself to check out this folding round table. Round tables typically dont take up any more room than those old-fashioned square card tables, but they roll and store so much easier its almost criminal to consider the square alternative. A folding round table generally has a greater surface area and can seat more people than square tables, they look nicer in a banquet setting, and are still ideal for game night, scrapbook parties, church activities, holiday events, and even garage sales. This folding round table is available with free shipping from BuyLifetime.com! Bulk discount pricing available.
Just My Size!
Kids have a way of doing things that just make you smile. Its always surprising and amusing how even the tiniest of tots can be pretty resourceful. Take, for instance,my daughters witty idea a few weeks ago when we visited my family in Ohio. While we were up at their lake house, we ate almost every meal outside to enjoy the lake view and the beautiful weather. Plus, with six adults and five kids, we simply had more table space outside than inside. Typically, the adults would always sit at my parents patio table and chairswhile the kids would eat at the 6 Lifetime picnic table. Even though it wasnt a childrens Lifetime picnic table, all of the kiddos could reach just fine, except for my two-year-old daughter, Alyssa. She loves being like the big kids though so dont think for a second that size would stop her! Nope, usually...
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...
