A year or so ago, I wrote a blog about why we love living in Elkins. One of the features was our local grocery store, Harp’s Foods. We love that store and I get a kick out of telling people all the stuff we can get there that one wouldn’t think of for small town grocery store.
It occurred to me a couple weeks ago that a person could shop at Harp’s for most of their New Year’s resolutions. I’m not making major resolutions this year except to take life as it comes and to live in the moment. That said, I thought I’d show how a person could use Harp’s for many resolutions.
Three quick things: Harp’s did not ask me to write this blog so it’s not sponsored in any way. Also, the Harp’s in Elkins is considered a mid-sized store so larger stores might have more available options. Lastly, all of these pictures are taken in flourescent lighting with a cell phone so forgive the low quality!
This is probably one of the biggest resolutions, right? Another, similar goal is to eat more local food. Harp’s has all that:
Many people choose to eat and drink better simply to improve their overall health and sense of well-being. Some also have the goal of losing weight. Harp’s can help you monitor that goal, too:
Try new things
This could also involve food, such as learning a new cuisine.
Life’s full of new adventures that have nothing to do with food.
And that leads us to….
We are so connected to our computers and our phones that more people want to get out in nature and just enjoy life. Or, perhaps simply unplug during an indoor activity. Harp’s has stuff for all of that, too.
Harp’s offers multiple ways to save money. You can then use that money to do something cool like saving for vacations or getting out of debt.
Let me mention something else about the meat. With beef prices skyrocketing lately, we’re trying to find ways to use ground pork more (like in Asian spiced meatloaf). Harp’s is the only place I’ve seen ground pork consistently offered. They also have tri-tip, which is a favorite from my husband’s childhood.
Another way to save money is to take your own lunch to work. This doesn’t really apply to me since I work from home, but for the rest of the world, check these out:
One last thought: another great things bout Harp’s is that if they don’t have an item, they are willing to see if it’s feasible for them to get it for you.
What are your resolutions and goals? Have you checked out Harp’s to get the tools to meet those goals?

I love our local Harps! It’s my favorite local grocery store. I’m hoping to eat more whole foods this year, as well as a few vegetarian dinners per week.
