"What's the deal with the dryer sheets?!?"
This question resurfaces occasionally so I'll sticky it next to the forum acronyms thread.
I haven't searched each & every thread containing the phrase, but I believe we should award credit to Fire5Soon for the first mention of dryer sheets in a Jan 2004 post
I would like to see more people posting
as a reference to frugality:

It's a frugality reference. Of course it's also been touted in other threads as a flag, a symbol of the forum, and an inside joke... subsequently added by the admins to poster ratings.

I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
