You'll find folks from every state on the streets of NY shopping.
Can't say I've seen the matching sibling outfits in CLE.

Ding, Ding, Ding, we have a winner! I just asked DW the question and this was her immediate answer without any hesitation.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You're looking in the wrong areas then. I know plenty of people in CLE that match their kids (also order the clothing from east coast).

Even without matching. Clothes shopping scene is pretty dismal....

Where's the meme of the frum woman who needed to return one of her kids because she couldn't find an 11th matching outfit?

We live in NYC and do kids clothing shopping at target. It's still difficult to get *everything* from those stores, especially for girls and shabbos and yom tov.

Why are the liebers rice cakes sold under the brand LaBonne every peisach? Is it the whole liebers brand?
The rice cakes are kitneos.  Leibers may want to have a separate kitneos brand.

Any ideas where someone can bury shaimos?
Anywhere on east coast
Thanks
Pinters on 14th Ave takes them from you.  He's supposed to bury them for us.  I presume he does so.

If it's useable I think he'll sell it.

@biobook or anyone else. Why does the distinct odor of Matzos noticeably carry over to urine, unlike most other foods?

Raises a bunch of non-random questions:
What kind of matzo does it smell like?  (Shmura, handmade?)
Does it occur when eating matzo all year round, or only on Pesach?
After what size shiur is this noticed?
How many people have reported this?  (I've never heard of it, but am intrigued.)
