How many loads of wash do you do a day? 1 one day (diapers) then 2-3 the next for regular clothes/towels. Bedding day is 5 loads.

How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? 5-7 actually less since it's summer.

Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? I keep things very un cluttered. I hate clutter and messes.

How long does it take to get ready to go out? Just a few minutes unless we're talking having to get the kids up and feed them etc.

Do you use coupons? I used to, but I really don't have the time and ambition for them right now.

How many loads of wash do you do a day? I should do a couple a day, just to keep on top of it. Instead I end up doing 4-5 twice a week.
How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? 1 1/2-2 a day. I buy 4 gallons every 3-5 days.
Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? Usually pretty well organized. When things get out of hand (toys,mail etc.) dh and I will tackle it together. Another area of struggle is change of season for clothes. Seems to take forever getting out the clothes and storing the off season.
How long does it take to get ready to go out? We can all be loaded and out the door in 15 min. That's assuming we're all up, fed and dressed.
Do you use coupons? Used to, dh discourages it though

How many loads of wash do you do a day? Everyone does their own when they can, maybe 1 a day goes through?

How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? Can't tell you gallons, haha. Maybe 5 litres? Were not big milk drinkers

Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? I like to call it organised mess.

How long does it take to get ready to go out? Not long, most of mine are old enough to sort themselves out.

Do you use coupons? They don't exist here.

How many loads of wash do you do a day? probably averages out to 1-2 per day
How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? try to use 1/2 to 1 gallon a day, so no more than 7 per week.
Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? oh, it's almost always a mess. Drives me nutty.
How long does it take to get ready to go out? anywhere from 5 min to an hour depending on where we're going and what time of day and how much the kids want to go.
Do you use coupons? haven't for a long time... if they ever offered coupons for fresh produce or meat I'd be all over couponing, but they only offer coupons on boxed/canned stuff I don't buy anyway.

How many wash loads? 8-12/ week

Gallons of milk? 6-8/ week

House? By my old 5 kids ago standards, very messy. We try really hard for sanitary and not too cluttered. Most of the time thats the best we can do.

How long does it take to go out? If we dont need to eat or pack food. 10-15min. That's dressed, potty, diaper bag and carseats.

Do you coupon? Cant afford not too. Mostly household Items, diapers, dairy and snacks.

How many loads of wash do you do a day? Not enough. I usually do 1, but should really do more.
How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? We average about 1 every 2 days.
Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? My house is a mess at the moment, but now that I am done with work for awhile, I intend to get it organized.
How long does it take to get ready to go out? Not long. My kids are pretty self-sufficient right now. I'd say no more than 30 minutes.
Do you use coupons? I used to and I intend to get back into it.

How many loads of wash do you do a day? We do 1-4 loads every other day.

How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? We go through at least 1 gallon a day, but sometimes...a lot of times we go through 2 gallons a day.

Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? It's a little of both and depends on me most days.

How long does it take to get ready to go out? If my teen DD's are coming 1-2 hours for full out prep. Me and just the little ones 30 minutes or so.

Do you use coupons? Not as often as I should but yes I do.

I should add that as far as cleanliness goes, my wonderful dh blessed me with a couple of WONDERFUL!!!!! cleaning ladies who come every Monday and every other Thursday. I was against the idea for so long, but now that they're here I wonder why I waited. They even not only straighten the dc's rooms, but also make their beds. When I go upstairs after they have been here I could cry tears of joy. It's just so beautiful

How many loads of wash do you do a day? 1-2 (have a feeling that's about to change to 2-3 when #4 gets here; I only have enough newborn cloth to get me through one day currently).
How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week?
I drink a lot of milk when preggers: about 3-4 gallons a week
Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? We have no attic storage (just enough for Christmas decorations) and we do not have a basement or garage either, so I am constantly organizing and reorganizing and throwing unwanted/broken things out.
How long does it take to get ready to go out? About an hour (depending on how many of us need baths, but they are still young enough to hop in the shower with me if need be).
Do you use coupons? I do when I can. There aren't a lot of coupons for the places I shop/products I like.

How many loads of wash do you do a day? We get the bulk of our clothing (7 of us) done in three - four loads on Mondays. Then we do Daddy's whites on Wednesday, towels on Thursdays, and delicates on Friday.
How many gallons of milk a day do you use in a week? 7 to 8 - we are huge milk drinkers
Do you keep your house well organized or it is a mess where you can still find things lol? not super organized, but neat. We can always seem to find things. But really looks lived in.
How long does it take to get ready to go out? depends on what we have to take with us. We can be dressed and ready and fed in about 45 minitues, but if we have to pack bags, lunches, etc., that is what slows us down.
Do you use coupons?Very rarely. We buy from ALDI most of the time, and then just meat and produce elsewhere.
