Sometimes when I am in town running errands and need to wash the car, I don't always want to because I may be wearing the wrong shoes. (I hate to get splatter on nice shoes).

Colorado Discount Grocery Stores?I recently moved to Colorado from Pennsylvania, and am having a hard time finding any discount grocery stores. I live in Golden, which is near the Denver area. There used to be CUB foods around here, but they have all closed, as far as I can find. There are the regular grocery stores, Sam's club (which I do shop at), and Target & Walmart grocery. But I was wondering if there are any actual grocery stores that are inexpensive or discounted, such as in PA we had Aldis' and Save-A-Lot. And these were cheaper than Walmart/Target for food. So it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could tell me about any discount grocery stores in the area. And I don't mind bagging my own groceries. Thanks.

HOMITA DVD Player Only Playing Black and White?My father recently gave my kids a 7 inch portable DVD player. The model is HOMITA S2153. Although it is not brand new, it has worked perfect up until today. As of today it no longer plays in color...only black and white. We have tried adjusting all the settings to no avail. There's nothing about it in the manual either. Does anyone know what we did wrong, or anything I can try? I emailed the company and never heard back from them. Thanks, Kim in NJ
