These are no-brainers.

If you've just moved to Northern Colorado for the first time, welcome. Also, we have bugs. A lot of them. Actually, if you're going to truly enjoy living here, there are a few things you need to have on-hand, either in your home or in your back pocket.

Let us know which products we missed in the comments, locals!

1. Bug Repellent

Listen, we've got bugs. A lot of them. These little guys should probably stay outside, but if you're noticing an influx of spiders in your home (as we do a few times each year) it might be handy to have this guy around.

2. Outdoor Lights

Look, we NoCo residents love spending all of our time outside. It's why we live here: the weather is fantastic and we just want to be out in it. Embrace the outdoors by getting some string lights for your back patio so that you can enjoy it all the time.

3. Chapstick

It gets dry here...obviously. That's why it's always a good idea to have a supply of Chapstick at work, in the car, and on your bedside table.

4. Dash Cam

Because we've got so many varieties of wildlife, you don't want to worry about taking your eyes off the road to take out your phone for a snap of elk, deer, or a moose. Use a dash cam instead!

5. Chacos/Tevas

I'm here to tell you that it's time to give in. These sandals might not be the most attractive thing in the world, but they are the perfect footwear when traversing Colorado's trails...trust me.
