Now this isn't official or anything and I won't judge you if you don't have some of these. Okay so maybe I will, but here are the things everyone in South Jersey should have.

I was sitting at work today and thought there are certain things that everyone who lives in South Jersey should have at home. A survival kit if you will.

    A summertime essential. You don't want to be accused of being a Shoobie do you? The answer here would be of course not. Plus, they go with everything. It is never an inappropriate time for flip-flops. Well, my brother doesn't think so at least.

    Some Sort of Bug Repellent.

    The summer brings beautiful weather, beach days, and more time outdoors. Summer also brings ticks, mosquitoes and green head flies. Make sure you have that bug repellent handy at all times. Ellie called in and suggested putting dryer sheets in your pockets. I've never tried it for myself, but now I will. Julie called and said make sure you have Skin So Soft.

    Beach Supplies

    Whether your beach is a lake or the ocean make sure you have the necessities. First, you need a beach chair. I mean a real beach chair not a camping chair. Second, a beach towel not a bath towel. Third, an umbrella not a tent. Again, you don't want to be a Shoobie do you?

    Beach Badge

    This technically could have been included with beach supplies, but I wanted to make it separate.

    Johnson's Popcorn

    You need something to snack on might as well make it Johnson's popcorn. Honestly, this is a staple in South Jersey.

    Pork Roll

    If you do not have some pork roll in your fridge or freezer right now please make your way to the nearest food store and get some.
