Oregonians are equipped with amazing local coffee, beer, wine, and an unshakable love of the outdoors. From a fridge full of craft beer to a pair of muddy hiking boots, here are 13 products that you’ll find in just about every Oregon home. How many of these things do you have in your house?
Mmmm... Whenever I leave Oregon, one of the things I miss most is the abundance of delicious, perfectly roasted coffee. For us coffee drinkers, we've always got a bag of beans in the cupboard.
12. Lots of books.
A necessity, especially for rainy days.
11. Hiking Shoes.
Being surrounded by so much natural beauty, how could we miss the opportunity to lace up our hiking boots and experience the great outdoors?
10. An umbrella.
Even if you can get by without it, you probably have one hidden away somewhere.
9. Craft beer.
With so many amazing local breweries around, it's easy to keep your fridge stocked with an awesome selection of craft beer.
8. A bike.
Rain or shine, bikes are a great way to get from place to place while getting bit of exercise and reducing your carbon footprint.
7. At least one pair of Nikes.
Nike's headquarters are in Beaverton, so it makes sense that so many of us have a pair of these athletic shoes in our closets.
6. A recycling bin.
Oregon is really good about recycling---which is totally awesome.
5. A compost bin.
Many households also opt for a compost bin where they can efficiently dispose of biodegradable food products.
4. A camera.
For our outdoor adventures, photo albums, and art projects.
3. A bottle of wine.
Oregon has tons of amazing wineries.
2. Camping gear.
There's nothing better than a camping getaway on a sunny weekend.
1. Mason jars.
Whether they're for making pickles, storing leftovers, or a cute way to serve cocktails, you'd be hard pressed to find a house in Oregon without at least one mason jar.
