"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
http://www.early-retirement.org/foru...6&postcount=40 as a reference to frugality:

I cut my dryer sheets in half to make the box last longer (although I could line dry my clothes...).

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.
