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.

An all new www.Lifetime.com
Over here at Lifetime Products Mission Control, we try to keep our flagship website up-to-date not only with the latest content, but also with the latest in techology and design. When we visit websites we tend to like the ones that frequently update their content; have a clean, easy to use navigation scheme; and are fun to interact with. We think these kinds of sites encourage people to come back (that's called "repeat viewership" in web lingo) and to explore the site (that's called "multiple page views"). So, we added some flash, we added some interesting articles, and much more before wrapping it all up in a fancy new design that we hope you'll love! Why don't you head on over to www.Lifetime.com, surf around a little bit, then come back here and let us know what you think!
How to Make an Umbrella Hole in Your Lifetime Picnic Table
Sundaynight was the season premiere of Army Wives on Lifetime TV. I love this show! Since Im a military spouse, there are so many aspects of the show that hit pretty close to home. So naturally, I was glued to the TV anxiously awaiting the fate of my favorite characters. Now, Ive admitted before that I pathetically watch for Lifetime products in TV shows. Well,Sunday night was no different. Wait, wait. I promise Im not going to write about every single time I see Lifetime products on TV, but I just have to share a snapshot fromSunday nights Army Wives episode! Why? Because it highlights a great, yet little-known feature, of the Lifetime picnic table. Check out this first photo. What do you notice? Yep, the table has an umbrella in it! How did that happen? Most people buying a Lifetime picnic table know the tables fold fla...
Labor Day Bike Trail Bribes
I hope all of you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. From neighborhood barbeques to lazy days on the lake and everything in between, it seems most people find some way to celebrate the holiday by squeezing in one last hoorah of outdoor fun before summer and warm temperatures come to an end. Me? Well, we are still enjoying exploring all the wonders and activities of our new home state of Colorado. So, we started our Labor Day by attending our little community parade which honored our local firefighters for all of their heroic efforts and endless hours of protecting the Colorado Springs area during this summer's historic and tragic Waldo Canyon fire. THANK YOU, firefighters! Then, since it was such a gorgeous day, we took advantage of living in one of Mother Nature's most beautiful adventure lands and took our kids on their f...
