It is just a humorous way of indicating you are a relatively new poster.

Donít fret. Just something that the software puts in. Do a search on dryer sheets for more info.

And welcome aboard!

I line dry my clothes to avoid confusion.

They last forever that way.

Notice my picture is for wool dryer balls. They replace dryer sheets, so I never buy them.

Apparently there was a joke/thread a long time ago about cutting dryer sheets in half to save money. I could be mistaken though...

The 2020 version is about TP.

Here's a link that explains Dry Sheet reluctance and other user titles: https://www.early-retirement.org/for...tml#post739570

Is it quirky? Probably...

Quirky? Anyone who has a reluctance to dry sheets falls in the kinky category.

Clicking through some older posts, this reference from 2004 seems to be the origin: (who made their last appearance here in 2007).

I've lurked on this board for six months or so, and having recently changed jobs where I have more time on my hands, hopefully I'll be able to post a little more. I think many of us can learn a lot by reading & sharing our experiences.

Personally, I could live on less than $15k/year including the mortgage... but I'm to the extreme on many issues I'm afraid. I've considered trying to grow some of my own food to reduce grocery costs. I cut my dryer sheets in half to make the box last longer (although I could line dry my clothes...). I have also calculated how much my PB+J costs to make, thus calculating how much lunch costs me on a weekly basis.

Thankfully my wife keeps me from going overboard with my LBYM tendencies. She is also "cheap within reason". It is a huge help in my FIRE goals that she is also frugal... now if I can just get her to cut those dryer sheets... :
