My wife&rsquo;s favorite part is going shopping! I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?).</p> <p>My goal is to help you know where you can find our products. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re looking for a new basketball hoop, <a href="http://www.sportsauthority.com/home/index.jsp?iq_id=34721488-VQ16-c&amp;camp=ppc:iqid:34721488-VQ16-c&amp;gclid=CImcrY6klMICFQuIaQod8C0ASQ" target="_blank">Sports Authority</a>, <a href="http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=12401608" target="_blank">Dick&rsquo;s Sporting Goods</a>, <a href="http://www.big5sportinggoods.com/store/specials/Black+Friday+Sale+2014" target="_blank">Big 5</a>, and <a href="http://www.walmart.com/store/3789/weekly-ads?veh=sem&amp;adid=22222222220215125393&amp;flyer_run_id=39203&amp;flyer_type_name=ad&amp;wl2=c&amp;wmlspartner=wmtlabs&amp;wl1=g&amp;wl4=&amp;wl3=46604722969&amp;wl0=e" target="_blank">Walmart</a> have hoops on sale.

That makes it much more challenging to get the ball in the net!&nbsp;<img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/1111netball.jpg" alt="1111netball.jpg" width="363" height="259" align="right" /></p> <p>The game of Netball was derived from early versions of basketball. Some of the differences between the rules of basketball and netball are:</p> <p>BBALL: 2 teams of 5 vs 5 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />NETBALL: 2 teams of 7 vs 7</p> <p>BBALL: Players are free to go where they want on the court&nbsp;<br />NETBALL: Players are assigned to specific positions, which define their roles within the team and<br />restrict their movement to certain areas of the court.</p> <p>&nbsp;<br />BBALL: A player on offense has a 24 second shot clock in which to shoot the ball and can hold<br />the ball for the entire 24 seconds if he chooses.<br />NETBALL: A player on offense has 3 seconds to either pass the ball to a teammate or shoot the <br />ball.&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />BBALL: A standard game consists of four 12 minute quarters&nbsp;<br />NETBALL:&nbsp; A standard game is 60 minutes long</p> <p>Be one of the first 10 customers to purchase the new <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/products/blt/pid-1111.aspx" target="_blank">Netball</a> system from <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/" target="_blank">buylifetime.com</a> and&nbsp;take advantage of this&nbsp;40% discount!

So, what makes <a title="grabcessories website" href="http://www.grabcessories.com/" target="_blank">Grabcessories&trade;</a>&nbsp;unique?&nbsp;First, they look GREAT!&nbsp; Honestly, they do!&nbsp; Our new product line is designed to be both beautiful and functional - seamlessly integrating as actual bathroom d&eacute;cor while providing the convenience of safety accessories.&nbsp; If you read between all that marketing mumbo-jumbo, it means your bathroom will still look like a home bathroom and not a hospital or nursing home.</p> <p>The second thing that makes Grabcessories&trade;&nbsp;unique is that they currently are the only safety grab bar product on the market offering a complete line of coordinating bathroom safety accessories.&nbsp; Most manufactures only offer one bar for one area of the bathroom.&nbsp; But, the Grabcessories&trade; line includes a 2-in-1 toilet paper holder, dry towel shelf, towel bar, curved grab bar, and tub spout/shower valve. So, if you install the complete line of y Grabcessories&trade;, you can easily maneuver from the toilet, to the tub/shower, to getting a clean towel, and then hanging the wet towel....you get the idea.</p> <p>Finally, Grabcessories&trade; are unique because of the patented anchoring system we've designed which allows you to easily install the products on any wall surface - tub, tile, marble, drywall, or wall studs.&nbsp; And, when installed correctly, they will hold up to 500lbs!&nbsp;&nbsp;I've included&nbsp;a quick how-to video below that shows you how easy it really is to install Grabcessories&trade;.</p> <p>After you finish watching this video, be sure to visit <a title="Lifetime's YouTube Channel" href="http://www.youtube.com/user/Lifetimeproducts/videos?flow=grid&amp;view=1" target="_blank">Lifetime's YouTube channel</a> to see even more videos about each specific Grabcessories&trade; product&nbsp;and to learn more about each product's features.&nbsp; Then, if you see a Grabcessories&trade; product (or two or three) you like, visit one of our many online retailers including the <a title="buy Grabcessories" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/outdoorProducts/grab-bars/Default.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Store Online</a> to purchase.</p> <p>And remember, safety grab bars are not just for aging seniors.&nbsp; They are also great for those with injuries and decreased strength, as well as children.&nbsp; I know my kids have hung on our towel bar too many times to count.&nbsp; Maybe if I practice what I preach and install a Grabcessories&trade; towel bar, I can finally stop reinstalling&nbsp;our regular&nbsp;towel bar every few weeks.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Z8_Fa9yZhSQ?list=PL58691D90AEF79116&amp;hl=en_US" frameborder="0" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p>Darrin03 Oct 2012 4:00:00 PMLifetime Deck Box Discount Just in Time For Winter Storagehttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356292/lifetime-deck-box-discount-just-in-time-for-winter-storagehttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356292/lifetime-deck-box-discount-just-in-time-for-winter-storage<p>Saturday, September 22, is officially the first day of autumn!

It combines the fun of Pickleball, QuickStart Tennis, Badminton, and more - all into one convenient product. Put it this way - if you're starting your Christmas lists already, get this on your list because it has family fun written all over it!</p> <p>The cool thing about this product is the portability... no cement required, no ground stakes to secure, and no support strings to get tangled in when playing.&nbsp; The 1.75-gallon portable bases fill with sand or water for stability during play, yet can easily be moved and transported - making the system ideal to use in a home driveway and backyard, or pack up and take to a beach, pool, or park. In addition, the unique telescoping poles allow the Lifetime Driveway 3 Sport Set to be set at 61" for Badminton and quickly lowered to 36" for Pickleball and Quick Start Tennis.</p> <p>I recently picked up one for my family. We love outdoor activity and this is a great product to put on the driveway or in the backyard and get some exercise. We love heading to the lake on the weekends and recently took the set to the beach area. With the adjustable net, it's great for badminton but we also purchased an inexpensive beach ball and played volleyball with all of our friends and family. It really is great for all age groups. The set is durable and will last. I am excited to have my set and now after our lake trip, all our friends and family can't wait to get there hands on one, too!</p> <p>The Lifetime Driveway 3 Sport Set includes a sturdy all-weather net with poles, two portable bases, four wooden paddles, two Pickleballs, two Quick Start Tennis Balls, and two Paddle Birdies. The set also includes two carry bags:&nbsp; one for the pole, net, and bases; and one for the equipment.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sound like fun?

Good question! BPA is a plasticizer that is used in the manufacturing of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, recycling type 3 &amp; 7) and other polycarbonate plastics to make them flexible. It is used mostly in flexible PVC piping, toys, plastic bottles, and the lining of some canned goods. In 2008, BPA became controversial as research indicated that it may be dangerous to our health&mdash;especially to babies. The US Food and Drug Administration has now taken steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in our food supply and food containers.</p> <p>The good news is that&nbsp;Lifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost cover&nbsp;DO NOT contain BPA. They are a &ldquo;Green Product&rdquo;. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE, recycling code type 2), and non toxic, non heavy metal pigments and ultraviolet light stabilizers in&nbsp;these panels. HDPE plastic is the safest and most environmentally friendly plastic available today. There is no danger of toxic leeching from the plastic into the ground water.</p> <p>Furthermore, when you&rsquo;ve finally worn out those HDPE garden bed panels, they can be safely recycled without releasing toxins during the process. The plastic we use contains a significant portion of clean post consumer content derived from washed and cleaned containers made of FDA grade HDPE (such as milk and detergent bottles). The processing temperatures commonly exceed 300 degrees Fahrenheit and easily eliminate the risk of bacteria or virus spread..</p> <p>To thank our customers for asking such a great question, we&rsquo;re offering a special discount on our environmentally friendly raised garden beds.&nbsp;From now until April 16th&nbsp;we will be offering our blog readers <strong>$30 off</strong> the regular price of model #60053 <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60053.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Raised Garden Bed&nbsp;Kit</a> when you purchase from our <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/" target="_blank">online store</a>.

And, they are&nbsp;very affordable compared to most fiberglass boat dock lockers.&nbsp; Most importantly, it has a lockable lid to protect all of your valuables.&nbsp;&nbsp;Oh, and if the seagulls decide to leave you a present on your Lifetime Storage box - don't worry, they are stain resistant and easy to clean! :)&nbsp;<img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/boat locker 2.jpg" alt="boat locker 2.jpg" width="225" height="169" /></p> <p>The most common use for our <a title="buy a Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60012.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Outdoor Storage Boxes </a>is on backyard decks or patios.

I'm happy to tell you that one of these new products is a Lawn &amp; Garden product that is now available&hellip; a Lifetime Adirondack Chair!<br />&nbsp;<br />If you're still wondering what to get Dad for Father's Day, this is a perfect gift to give your Dad or husband to help him relax this summer in his backyard, on the front porch, or on the beach with his feet in the sand.&nbsp; (It's also good for moms too, so don't feel guilty about purchasing a matching chair for her!)<br />&nbsp;<br />What will Dad love about the new <a title="about the Lifetime Adirondack Chair" href="http://www.lifetime.com/lawn-garden/outdoor-furniture/adirondack-chair" target="_blank">Lifetime Adirondack Chair</a>?&nbsp; Lots of things, starting with the way it looks.&nbsp; It's manly - no fluffy cushions or dainty wicker.&nbsp; This is a sip-your-beverage and admire-your-lawn-work kind of chair.&nbsp;&nbsp; (But, as you can see, it still has&nbsp;a stylish look women like, too.) At first glance, it's difficult to tell the Lifetime Adirondack Chair is not made of real wood. The color variations and texturing are an amazingly close replication to the characteristics of natural wood grain. The Lifetime Adirondack Chair is constructed of weather-resistant polystyrene - a type of plastic. (If you are familiar with some of our other outdoor furniture products, this is the same material the <a title="buy a Lifetime Convertible Bench" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60054.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Convertible Bench </a>and <a title="buy a Lifetime Glider Bench" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60055.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Simulated-Wood Glider Bench</a> are made of.)&nbsp; It's a durable, UV-protected material that allows us to simulate the grain and texture of real wood.&nbsp; But, unlike wooden furniture, this simulated-wood will not splinter, warp, or rot and never needs to be painted or varnished&hellip; which means Dad will also like that it's maintenance free!&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />Finally, Dad will like its comfort.&nbsp; The Lifetime Adirondack Chair features a traditional design with a low-to-the-ground and deep seat.&nbsp; It classically combines comfort and style with a 31.25"w x 38.6"l x 14"h seat and 36.9" tall seat back<br />&nbsp;<br />If you're a loyal fan of Lifetime, you're probably used to us inventing and introducing never-before-seen products.&nbsp; We realize an adirondack is certainly nothing new.&nbsp; What makes the Lifetime Adirondack Chair unique is that it is an affordable option for customers wanting the convenience of outdoor, maintenance-free plastic furniture, but the beauty and durability of real wood furniture.&nbsp; (An affordable price for a quality product - yet another feature Dad will love.)&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/adirondack chair 2.jpg" alt="adirondack chair 2.jpg" width="225" height="150" />This is a perfect addition to your outdoor living space to enjoy an afternoon relaxing with family and friends.

Keep on the look out and&nbsp;I'm sure you'll notice them everywhere from industrial break rooms to professional waiting rooms. Why? Because they are durable and require very little maintenance to look as good as new throughout many years of constant public use, indoors or out. That's especially important for professional environments, but for me personally, I love Lifetime <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Chairs/Default.aspx?from=top" target="_blank">chairs </a>because THEY'RE COMFORTABLE.</p> <p><img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/resized-stacking-chairs.jpg" alt="resized-stacking-chairs.jpg" width="150" height="140" />If you spend alot of time sitting at a desk suffering from back pains (like I did) you may want to start thinking less about cushioning and more about firm support. I found my cushioned office chair was causing me to slump into the back of the chair with my shoulders rolled forward and absolutely no support against my lower back. My aching back prompted me to do some research. So, I experimented with the different styles of chairs we&nbsp;make at Lifetime Products. Each week I used a different Lifetime chair at my desk. I found that they were all very comfortable, but I ended up going with the <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Chairs/StackableChairs/Default.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Stacking Chair </a>for two reasons. First, I like the way it contours to my back and supports me in an erect upright position just a little bit better than the other styles, which are designed at a slightly&nbsp;reclining angle. This stacking chair was actually designed to be&nbsp;more&nbsp;upright for sitting up to a table, for example a dining table. Second, it has a sleek, modern look and it's available in a rich caramel color; warm and sophisticated&nbsp;to compliment&nbsp;my office decor.&nbsp;&nbsp;<img style="float: left;" src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/contoured chairs.jpg" alt="contoured chairs.jpg" width="200" height="142" /></p> <p>Lifetime also manufactures the <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Chairs/FoldingChairs/Default.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Contoured Folding Chair </a>which is also VERY comfortable, and as I mentioned before, designed with a little bit of a reclining back. This chair comes with two types of legs to choose from, standard or loop leg.&nbsp;The <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-480072.aspx" target="_blank">loop leg </a>is an ingenius idea in which the legs are designed so they won't sink into the turf at outdoor events like wedding receptions.</p> <p><img style="float: right;" src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/contemporary chair.jpg" alt="contemporary chair.jpg" width="179" height="150" />The <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-480074.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Contemporary Chair </a>is just what the name implies, the chair with a flair. This is a unique design that will definitely appeal to our more fashion-minded customers. With this chair you not only get the comfort you expect from a Lifetime chair, but creative styling as well. Nice combination!</p> <p>When considering which of our <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Chairs/Default.aspx?from=top" target="_blank">Lifetime chairs </a>would best suit your own needs, you should, of course, consider your storage space. Would stacking chairs be best for you? You can stack up to 8 chairs in the space of just one. Or would folding chairs be more practical for your needs?&nbsp;In our <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Chairs/ChairAccessories/Default.aspx" target="_blank">chair accessories </a>line, we&nbsp;also offer a <a title="about a Lifetime Chair" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-6525.aspx" target="_blank">chair cart </a>for easy transportation and storage of your folding chairs, as well as <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-1051166.aspx" target="_blank">slip covers&nbsp;</a> to dress up your chairs for formal events.</p> <p>No matter which style you choose, I know you'll be impressed with the comfort. Of course you're also going to appreciate the superior durability and easy-care maintenance. For attractive seating accommodations in the home or workplace, for lightweight take-along seating to outdoor events, and for superior comfort and firm support, I personally recommend <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Chairs/Default.aspx?from=top" target="_blank">Lifetime chairs</a>.&nbsp;&nbsp;Go to&nbsp;our online store at <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/" target="_blank">buylifetime.com</a> and enter the special discount code&nbsp;Chair10 to get $10 off of any of these awesome chairs for a limited time only.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Charlys17 Dec 2010 10:00:45 AM3 Lucky Winners This Month!http://blog.lifetime.com/article/356085/3-lucky-winners-this-monthhttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356085/3-lucky-winners-this-month<p><img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/money.JPG" alt="money.JPG" width="225" height="169" />The gift giving started a little early this year as we helped spread a little holiday cheer this morning to three people who will get to pick a Lifetime product to go under their tree!&nbsp;&nbsp; Congratulations to our following random winners who will receive gift certificates redeemable online in our <a title="Lifetime Store" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/" target="_blank">Lifetime Store</a>:</p> <p><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Jeff G.</strong> of Houston, TX - $300<br /><strong>Clint P</strong>. of Kaysville, Utah - $150<br /><strong>Linsey G</strong>. of West Haven, Utah - $50</span></p> <p>Thanks to all of you who took the time to enter this month's giveaway.&nbsp; It was such a delight to read what everyone has on their wish list from <a title="about Lifetime Products" href="http://www.lifetime.com/company/about-lifetime-products-inc.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Products</a>.&nbsp; Some of you are hoping Santa knows you've been really, really nice this year and will bring you five or six Lifetime products!&nbsp; Others of you simply want your stocking filled with a new <a title="buy a Lifetime shed light" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/outdoorSheds/ShedAccessories/Default.aspx" target="_blank">shed light</a>.&nbsp; But, the most popular items most of you want to see in Santa's sleigh this year are an <a title="about a Lifetime Ace Flyer Teeter-Totter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-151200.aspx" target="_blank">Ace Flyer Teeter-Totter </a>and a <a title="about Lifetime Basketball Hoops" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/Basketball/Default.aspx?from=top" target="_blank">Basketball Hoop</a>.</p> <p>No matter what is on your shopping or wish list, we hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.&nbsp; And, watch for our next giveaway to start in January after all of the holiday hustle and bustle has melted away!</p>Jan10 Dec 2010 11:00:00 AMWin A $300 Lifetime Store Gift Certificate!http://blog.lifetime.com/article/356082/win-a-300-lifetime-store-gift-certificatehttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356082/win-a-300-lifetime-store-gift-certificate<p><a title="winners announced" href="http://blog.lifetime.com/article/356085/3-lucky-winners-this-month" target="_blank"><img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/2010 December contest ended.jpg" alt="2010 December contest ended.jpg" width="225" height="180" /></a>&nbsp;<span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>This giveaway has ended.</strong>&nbsp;</span> Ho!

So, by renaming the store and using the same Lifetime logo that's on all of our products, there is now an obvious connection between our products and our stores.&nbsp;&nbsp;It's still the same great store, just a new name.</p> <p>If you've never been to a Backyards Inc. store (now Lifetime Store), this is the perfect time to make a visit to find some great deals on holiday gifts!&nbsp; We have six stores located throughout Utah in Clearfield, Draper, Orem, Riverdale, Taylorsville, and Salt Lake City.&nbsp; The Lifetime Store showcases products made by Lifetime Products, including folding tables and chairs, basketball equipment, outdoor sheds, playground equipment, kayaks, and soccer goals.

Just started you say? Yes!</p> <p>Okay, what do I mean by that? Well, think about it... the gardening season is winding down in my neck of the woods. All I've got left are cold-weather crops, and some unharvested potatoes, carrots, and red beets. We'll come back to those in a little bit. &nbsp;All the other plants -- the tomatoes, the potatoes, the herbs -- have wilted with the frost. There's a lot of dead material to compost as you clean out your garden and prepare it for winter. That's why I say it's just the beginning of the composting season -- but there's a catch and a few things to look out for.</p> <p><a title="tips for composting" href="http://www.lifetime.com/article/2420" target="_blank">Composting</a>, as you well know, takes a certain amount of heat. Winter, as you also know, is relatively cold -- thereby introducing some problems to traditional composting. That's one of the reasons&nbsp;the <a title="about a Lifetime composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Lifetime Composter </a>is black, to absorb the winter sun and use that to heat the composting materials. The Lifetime Composter also features a hollow, double-wall, which adds some insulating value that other, single-walled composters don't have.</p> <p>But even with the black color and double-walls, temperatures inside the composter can still drop below freezing which, in addition to stopping any composting activity, will turn a soggy mix into a block of ice. Which brings us back to that "catch" and things to look out for that I mentioned earlier. A <a title="The Lifetime Online Store" href="http://www.buylifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com </a>customer wrote in with the following question:</p> <blockquote> <p><em>We have had the tumbler about a mo. and a half. We are excited. Our problem is controlling the</em> <em>moisture over the last few days we have noticed magots growing like crazy. We use primarily kitchen/vegetableand fruit scraps. Are we doing something wrong? I'm afraid we need to destroy what we have started and start over - we just need to understand the why behind the growing of these magots! Thanks a bunch.</em>&nbsp;</p> </blockquote> <p>Moisture and maggots. Yuck! Maggots aren't necessarily a bad thing, they are, after all, decomposers. You don't want them to turn into flies and make your pleasant composter into an eyesore, so getting to the bottom of why you have maggots is probably a good idea.</p> <p>First of all, you won't generally find maggots in a good mix of ingredients. If you're throwing away table scraps, particularly dairy (cheese) and meats, there's your problem. Stop putting those in your composter and you'll probably have solved the problem. (As long as the meat isn't chicken or turkey you can feed it, along with the dairy, to your chickens, then compost their droppings.)</p> <p>Next, moisture. Your compost materials should be damp, not wet, and definitely not soggy. If you find your mix in this state -- wet and sloppy -- add some dry materials. That can be hard to do around this time of year, when just about everything you add to the mix is wet. To remedy this, add some very dry "stuff" (that's the technical term). Sawdust works great, dry straw or dry lawn clippings (the yellow kind that crumble in your fist) also work pretty well. Dry coffee grounds, and even hair can help dry out your mix). Having a "dry" mix in the winter will allow you to keep turning your compost -- something you can't do if it's a block of ice.</p> <p>Lastly, heat. Yes, it might be below freezing out there, but making sure your composter is in the sun for as many hours of the day will help keep composting -- albeit at a slower pace. Don't forget to turn it every few days, and add all those non-meat, non-dairy table scraps all through the winter. Hopefully you'll have a fresh batch of compost all ready to go as soon as the ground is ready to work in the spring!</p>Joe19 Nov 2010 6:00:00 PMOne Winner Announced, Another Giveaway Continues!http://blog.lifetime.com/article/356076/one-winner-announced-another-giveaway-continueshttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356076/one-winner-announced-another-giveaway-continues<p><img src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/6 foot adjustable and chairs.jpg" alt="6 foot adjustable and chairs.jpg" width="225" height="180" />Wait!

The trees are changing colors, the heat of summer is gone. The garden is growing "cool weather crops" again. And, <a href="http://www.backyardadventures.com/" target="_blank">BackyardsInc.com</a> (the website for the Official Lifetime Products Outlet Store) just got a major overhaul!</p> <p>Okay, honestly, why should you care about us re-releasing one of our websites? Simply put, we make our websites for you!</p> <p>In this revision of the site, we started from the ground-up, building the site with ASP.NET MVC2, HTML5, CSS3, and even a custom JqueryUI theme thrown in. All this equates to a faster website that takes less time to load, can display more information in a much more timely fashion, and takes advantages of all the current standards on the web.&nbsp;Product videos, buy online links, and even assembly instructions are now available at your finger tips.</p> <p>Don't take my word for it, head on over to <a href="http://www.backyardadventures.com/" target="_blank">BackyardsInc.com</a> and see for yourself!</p>Joe20 Oct 2010 12:00:01 PMLifetime’s Online Store Goes Mobilehttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356057/lifetimes-online-store-goes-mobilehttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/356057/lifetimes-online-store-goes-mobile<p><a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a>, <a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime's Official Online Store</a>, has been doing business for many years, letting customers (like you!)&nbsp;buy direct for the manufacturer.</p> <p><img title="Mobile Buylifetime Announcement" src="http://blog.lifetime.com/imagecache/Blog/mobile-lifetime-online-store.jpg" alt="" width="173" height="225" />Over the years as&nbsp;technology has changed, our product catalog has gotten larger, and even more information has been added about our products &mdash; all to help you find the information that you want before making a purchase &mdash; we even have product videos online for you.</p> <p>We've built the site with standards in mind, which has let our site work on a wide variety of web browsers and operating systems. And then everything changed!!</p> <p>People started getting cell phones with the Internet on them!</p> <p>Luckily for us, these devices generally came with up-to-date web browsers (the Apple iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad; and phones powered by Android). Our site looked pretty good on these devices, and you could even buy something right there from your phone.</p> <p>The bad news? Our site wasn't designed to take advantage of the smaller screens these devices feature. Nor was it very "finger-friendly"... until now!</p> <p>Building a website for mobile devices isn't as easy as it sounds. We didn't want to replace the current site, or make it&nbsp;act any differently when viewed on a desktop or laptop computer. What's more, we&nbsp;wanted to maintain the&nbsp;back-end software that runs the catalog and shopping cart.</p> <p>Now, when you visit our site with a mobile device you'll see the mobile version of the site, optimized to fit on your screen. When you visit from your computer you'll see the site the way you always have. What's even cooler, all the same products are visible on both sites, and your username and password are the same regardless of which one you use.</p> <p>Buying direct from Lifetime Products has never been easier.

First let me talk about <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&rsquo;s new <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a>, available at <a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a> with free shipping! If you&rsquo;re not familiar with <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a>, don&rsquo;t worry, I&rsquo;ll cover that further down in this article, too.</p> <p>I saw initial designs and a prototype at a recent company meeting, and being the &ldquo;back to nature&rdquo; kind of guy that I am I wanted one right away, but I had to wait until the product made it to market. Yesterday I was able to buy my very own <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a>.</p> <p>First off, this thing is HUGE, but it doesn&rsquo;t take up a lot of space. It fits easily in a 4-foot square (the footprint of my old <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> pile), and wow, does it hold a lot! 75 gallons or 10 cubic feet to be exact.</p> <p>The theory behind most tumbler-style <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">composter</a>s is that by rolling or &ldquo;tumbling&rdquo; the <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">composter</a> every day or so you aerate, mix, and turn the <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> regularly, and it&rsquo;s much easier than doing it by hand. This, combined with the enclosed nature of the tumbler helps <a href="http://blog.lifetime.com/blogs/lifetime365/image_1C2622B7.png"><img style="border:0px none;display:inline;margin-left:0px;margin-right:0px;" title="Lifetime Composter" src="http://blog.lifetime.com/blogs/lifetime365/image_thumb_2EBD6185.png" border="0" alt="Lifetime Composter" width="209" height="243" align="right" /></a>keep the heat inside, which speeds up the process. I&rsquo;m sold on the tumbling variety, but have never purchased one for myself due to the terribly high prices &ndash; until now.</p> <p>One of the name-brands that I looked at has a list-price of $534.00 &ndash; and MORE! Go to Google and search for &ldquo;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> tumbler&rdquo; and take a look at the prices (and the sizes), don&rsquo;t forget to add shipping costs if you&rsquo;re going to order online.</p> <p>So, why choose the <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a>?</p> <ul> <li>The <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a> is available from <a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a> for an awesome price,with <strong>free shipping</strong>,</li> <li>The <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a> is made with double-walled HDPE, yes, that means it&rsquo;s durable, but it also means that you have an insulating air pocket between the outside air and the inside pre-<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a>, which helps cook the <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> faster</li> <li>The <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a> lid is enormous (but still light-weight), you won&rsquo;t have to worry about getting the raw materials into the <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">composter</a> or getting the cooked <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> out of it</li> <li>The <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a> is tall enough to park most <a title="wheelbarrows" rel="vote-for" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank">wheelbarrows</a> underneath it for easy unloading of the <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">composter</a>, but not so tall to complicate loading</li> <li>The <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">Composter</a> is easy to assemble with basic tools</li> </ul> <p>So far I love this thing!

If you have a kitchen you have to do something with your kitchen scraps.

Instead of those people paying someone to haul off their waste, they turn it into <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> and get you to buy it! You&rsquo;re just spending money on someone else&rsquo;s waste! What a racket!</p> <p>You have yard waste (lawn clippings, trimmings, weeds, etc.) and table scraps (egg shells, greens, fruit peels and cores, unused vegetables), all you need is a place keep it all, turn is a bit, and in a month or so you&rsquo;ve made your very own <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a>! (Depending on how often you turn it and how much mass you have, of course.)

Repeat the top-dressing every few weeks until the problem is solved. Adding the <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a> adds organic material and fertilizes the area, helps balance soil pH, and helps prevent drying out.</p> <p>For trees, top-dress around the base of the tree, staying a few inches away from the trunk and covering the entire drip-area beneath the tree.</p> <p>For shrubs and bushes, top-dress 6- to 8-inches away from the outer-most leaves. For flowers, top-dress lightly.</p> <p>For Square-Foot gardens, add a trowel or two every time you harvest or plant a square.</p> <p>Give it a shot and let me know how your <a title="Lifetime Composter" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-60021.aspx" target="_blank">compost</a>ing goes!</p>Joe08 Apr 2009 12:00:00 PMLifetime Wheelbarrow, now available in single-pack!http://blog.lifetime.com/article/2458/lifetime-wheelbarrow-now-available-in-single-packhttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/2458/lifetime-wheelbarrow-now-available-in-single-pack<p><a title="Lifetime Wheelbarrow" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank"><img style="border-bottom:0px;border-left:0px;display:inline;margin-left:0px;border-top:0px;margin-right:0px;border-right:0px;" title="Lifetime Wheelbarrow" src="http://blog.lifetime.com/blogs/lifetime365/image_1EB0A64F.png" border="0" alt="Lifetime Wheelbarrow" width="302" height="352" align="right" /></a>With springtime upon us, everyone with a yard now has their mind set on spring clean-up, fresh planting, gardening, fertilizing, composting&hellip; the list seems almost endless.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a> was excited to offer this as soon as the <a title="wheelbarrows" rel="vote-for" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank">wheelbarrows</a> came off the line, but the product beat the packaging! <a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a> offered the <a title="wheelbarrows" rel="vote-for" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank">wheelbarrows</a> in the bulk packaging (what I affectionately called the &ldquo;neighborhood discount pack&rdquo;), but most customers only need one or two of these <a title="wheelbarrows" rel="vote-for" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank">wheelbarrows</a>, not seven or eight.</p> <p>So, if you seen the <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="wheelbarrow" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank">Wheelbarrow</a> on <a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a> in the past, but didn&rsquo;t want to get half-a-dozen or more of them, today you can buy just one!</p> <p>And, just like everything on <a href="http://www.BuyLifetime.com" target="_blank">BuyLifetime.com</a>, the <a title="Lifetime Products" href="http://www.Lifetime.com" target="_blank">Lifetime</a>&nbsp;<a title="wheelbarrow" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/PID-65011.aspx" target="_blank">Wheelbarrow</a> is available with <strong>FREE SHIPPING</strong>, right to your door!</p>Joe07 Apr 2009 12:54:28 PMPlastic Shedshttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/2425/plastic-shedshttp://blog.lifetime.com/article/2425/plastic-sheds<p><a title="plastic sheds" href="http://www.buylifetime.com/about-our-products/sheds.aspx" target="_blank"><img style="border-right-width:0px;display:inline;border-top-width:0px;border-bottom-width:0px;border-left-width:0px;" title="plastic sheds" src="http://blog.lifetime.com/blogs/lifetime365/image_427DB832.png" border="0" alt="plastic sheds" width="590" height="165" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/about-our-products/sheds.aspx" target="_blank">Plastic storage sheds</a> are a must-have for anyone that has a yard. Storage sheds in general help you to keep your tools and other &ldquo;yard stuff&rdquo; organized, out of the weather, and out of the yard. Bags of compost or fertilizer store well in a weather-proof shed, and if you lock your outdoor <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/Products/BLT/outdoorSheds/Default.aspx" target="_blank">storage shed</a> these potentially harmful bags can be stored out of reach of children, pets, or vandals.</p> <p>Lifetime <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/about-our-products/sheds.aspx" target="_blank">plastic garden sheds</a> have some distinct benefits over traditional stick-framed sheds, and don&rsquo;t even get me started about flimsy metal sheds. Wood sheds need to be maintained to keep them safe from the elements. Walls and doors need to be scraped and painted somewhat frequently to keep the exterior weather-tight, shingles need to be replaced every so often. Insects and rodents love wood, it&rsquo;s a natural element, they can eat, gnaw through, nest in&hellip; and since you don&rsquo;t live in your shed you&rsquo;re less likely to see early problem signs &ndash; until the damage has been done.</p> <p>Lifetime <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/about-our-products/sheds.aspx" target="_blank">plastic sheds</a> don&rsquo;t need to be painted, they don&rsquo;t have singles, generally speaking they don&rsquo;t get eaten by bugs and rodents, and if your city&rsquo;s building code is like mine you might not need a building permit or inspections to put up a <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/about-our-products/sheds.aspx" target="_blank">plastic shed</a> like you do with a wood shed. (Your land-use and building codes may differ, so make sure you check for yourself!)</p> <p>A <a href="http://www.buylifetime.com/about-our-products/sheds.aspx" target="_blank">plastic shed</a> also makes a great gardening shed.

Add to that a two-wheel frame that&rsquo;s less likely to tip, and a &ldquo;dump pivot&rdquo; that is closer to where you want to dump your load, and it&rsquo;s a good start.
