Lifetime at the Lake House

Lifetime at the Lake House

Lifetime at the Lake House

My parents recently bought a vacation house at Lake Erie and I saw it for the first time when I went home to Ohio last month.  (Boy, good thing I made the trip to Ohio because it’s given me tons to blog about!) I was happy to see they had furnished several areas of the house with Lifetime products.  (I taught them well!)  My parents actually became Sam’s Club members for the first time just so they could buy some Lifetime products for their new house since Sam’s Club has such a large selection.

Remember my last post and how I was talking about my parents still having a heavy picnic table at home that they actually move with a lawn mower?  Well, apparently, it IS possible to teach an old dog new tricks! My parents purchased a Lifetime 8-foot picnic table for their patio at their lake house.   Hip-hip, hooray!

Since their backyard has a view of the lake, they wanted plenty of outdoor eating options for neighbors, grandkids etc. So, they also bought a Lifetime 6-foot banquet table and six chairs that they can set up outside or inside.  When the banquet table isn’t needed outside, they just keep it set up in the basement for crafts, games, storage, etc…and really just to kind of fill the empty basement! 

Oh, but wait, that’s not all!  When I first got to their new house, my mom was waiting on a little kitchen cart to arrive that she had ordered to fill a corner where she planned to keep jars of snacks for the grandkids.  In the meantime though, she was using her Lifetime Personal Table to hold the snacks.  What a perfect temporary fix! (Oops, I forgot to take a picture.)

And, Mom had a 4’x 2’ fold-in-half adjustable height table set up in her sewing room with her sewing machine on it.  It was a great fit for the small room and, if they need it, they can always take it outside for even more eating or serving space.

It was great to see that even though I’m no longer a Lifetime employee, Mom and Dad still purchased numerous Lifetime products because of their quality, versatility, and convenience.  Hmmm, now that I take a tally, I think my parents officially now own more Lifetime products than I do.  Way to go, Mom & Dad!

Tables Are Garage Sale Must!
Earlier this summer, we had a garage sale. We had a lot of junk treasures, to clean out. I was excited about the prospect of making a good chunk of change based on a few of our "big" objects and the oodles of infant gear and kids' clothes, which are always hot garage sale items. But, I knew that presentation was the key to getting more things sold. The neater my "treasures" were displayed, the quicker and better they would sell. We have annual garage sales so I've somewhat perfected my strategies over the years. I usually try to arrange things similar to a mini-store with all like-items placed together. Normally, I have enough table space simply by putting a big piece of plywood on top of our sawhorses, and setting up my card table and Lifetime 4'x2' table. I also always use my Lifetime Personal Table for my separate cash ta...
New Health and Wellness Products Coming Soon
Over the past year, we've shared with you information and videos about our new Lifetime Tru-Motion Walking Cane - and even about awards the cane has won. I am thrilled to tell you that because of the success with our cane, Lifetime has decided to launch an entire line of home safety accessories!

So, what will make our products different from other safety accessor...
What Lifetime Table Grades Really Mean
I just attended our annual sales conference last month. During theconference, the main product categories of our company present category updates and strategic direction. We also train the rest of theteam and the sales force on our product, as well as why we have, and offer, what we do. One topic I covered during my presentation was the need for different table grades. Our table grades allow us to sell quality product to different consumer segments. At Lifetime, we tout ourselves on the fact that we offer the best product on the planet in each of our consumer segments. We break our folding table lines into four different grades: Professional, Commercial, Light Commercial, and Residential. Our Professional Grade product is our highest specified product, having the highest weight and stability ratings intended for heavy-duty ...
